Those chains must be heavy.
Those shackles must be tight.
That weight on your shoulders must be crushing.
That rope must be wrangling.
They say you’re free but you feel more like a slave.
They say you’re a child but sometimes you feel like a servant.
They say you’re beloved but sometimes you feel undesired.
The weight of this world is heavy for the soul that doesn’t know Jesus.
And sometimes, just sometimes, it can be heavy for the one who does.
Oh sister, have you lost sight of the beautiful, the freeing and light blood of Jesus?
Maybe your life feels as heavy and guilty and shameful as before you met Jesus.
Maybe you’re being tempted and enticed to go back to that life.
Yeah, the pleasure from that life is instantaneous. You can feel the high and the pleasure and the tipsiness right away.
