Mental Chains

I saw this picture on a friend’s facebook page and just had to share it. How true it is. The battle truly is in the mind – but it is often led with the pains and fears of the heart.

mental chains

Lord, I am counting on you to give me the courage to continue breaking these chains that bind me – set me free. For the one’s that are in the middle of these same or similar battles – regardless of what they are – give them the courage to take that step of surrendering to you. We love you, we trust you –  Amen.

Set Me Free – Casting Crowns

Lyrics –

It hasn’t always been this way
I remember brighter days
Before the dark ones came
Stole my mind
Wrapped my soul in chains

Now I live among the dead
Fighting voices in my head
Hoping someone hears me crying in the night
And carries me away

Set me free of the chains holding me
Is anybody out there hearing me?
Set me free

Morning breaks another day
Finds me crying in the rain
All alone with my demons I am
Who is this man that comes my way?
The dark ones shriek
They scream his name
Is this the one they say will set the captives free?
Jesus, rescue me

Set me free of the chains holding me
Is anybody out there hearing me?
Set me free

And as the god man passes by
He looks straight through my eyes
And darkness cannot hide

Do you want to be free?
Lift your chains
I hold the key
All power on heaven and earth belong to me

Do you want to be free?
Lift your chains
I hold the key
All power on heaven and earth belong to me

You are free
You are free
You are free
We are free
We are free
Jesus set us free
