Broken Chains

February 13, 2019

“Come to Me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28




Be still and know.

He is God.

Stop striving.

Come to Me.

Trade worldly burdens for easy and light.

Everlasting love.

Broken hearts bound.

Soul’s rest.

Captives set free.

Life eternal.

Tears wiped away.

Pain no more.

Come, all who labor and are laden heavy. Share on X

The enemy kills, steals and destroys.

Christ gives peace, hope, love, joy.

Breaks chains.

Renews, restores.

Redemption and new life.

Robes of righteousness.

Sin slave no more.

Former things pass away.

Water to wine.

Mourning to dancing.

Blind eyes now see.

All sufficient grace.

Mighty to save.

In my weakness, He is strong.

Rejoice in truth.

Love as He loves.




Jesus makes all things new.

Lives transformed.

Strongholds destroyed.

Belt of truth, breastplate of righteousness.

Unity bound in love.

Gospel of peace, shield of faith.

Earthly nature exposed, erased.

Gratitude filled heart.

Mind set on things above.

Holy and dearly loved.

Bonds broken.

Ransom released.

Freedom frees.

Spirit of life, prisoner now prospers.

Light and momentary trouble.

Stand firm.

Resist lures and ploys.

Vomit return.


Self or Savior?

Walk in light.

Obedience is love’s expression.

Freewill offering, crucified flesh.

Rest in His peaceful Presence.




Be still and know.

Faith’s freedom.

Hope everlasting.

Self slave no more.

Father God, Lord and Master Jesus, thank you that in You, I am more than a conqueror. Thank You for fighting for me – I need only to be still. Forgive me for my unbelief – for striving in my own will and way to achieve results apart from You. Thank you for your great love – for never giving up on me. Thank you that You break chains and make all things new. Be my rest and refuge. Help me to know, love and serve you better. Thank you for calling me Your own – for calling me out of darkness into light. There is no one like You, Jesus – Your love never fails. Help me to serve others with the fruits of Your Spirit, grown in me as I trade my ways for Yours. I love You Father God, Lord Jesus – In Your Matchless, Saving Name I pray, Amen.

More about Liz

I'm a free spirit. I hate rules and legalism. I love art and nature, music, the beach and dogs. I like to garden, take pictures and read. I tend to speak my mind and have a rip-the-band-aid -off approach to life. (Brace yourself, this might hurt.)

      1. Yesss! Me too – you have experienced that – You have such a powerful testimony! I walk in the chains of hurt and self condemnation far too often – He died to free me from that mess – so happy you live in His freedom sister. Thank you for a great comment! ❤️

    1. Your writing shines God’s Truth and gives so much encouragements and will always shine until Jesus comes and bathed the world in His radiant Glory. Jesus Frees people from burdens.He keeps His promises s. Thank you Sweet friend for always showing ❤️ Love ❤️

      1. Jesus frees us from burdens – He keeps His promises…such beautiful truth. Thank you sister for your love light – it shines brightly for Him. ❤️❤️ love you my friend ❤️

    1. Hi Liz. I love how you circle back to our service throughout your post. After the grace and mercy and free life, we need to respond. Freedom insights gratitude.

      1. Hi Stephen! Always makes me happy to see you here 😁 yes! This is the challenge for me as well…to live a life worthy of His sacrifice – He saves us so we might save others. I get so consumed by “my” life I fail to look around or do uncomfortable things…but nowhere in the Bible did God call anyone to a life of comfort and ease. Yet this is often what I strive for and even ask for in prayer. To die to self is to gain true freedom. I pray that for me and you and all our Christian brothers and sisters. Let’s do this! ❤️
