Bondage presents the ultimate need for release. Spiritual bondage. Marital bondage. Health bondage. Financial bondage. Bondage is anything that prevents us from being free and experiencing what we were created to experience. If you’ve ever been there, you know exactly how it feels.
Maybe it’s time for you to release it and free yourself. The other day, my daughter had an idea to take a picture of herself jumping into the air while throwing fall leaves. Watching her jump into the air in total freedom made me realize that we have things in our lives that prevent us from jumping. Jumping and throwing the leaves represents freedom and fulfillment. When we throw the leaves, or whatever is keeping us bound, we must throw them and not look back.
Let the leaves fall where they may and trust God to finish the process. Resist the temptation to pick up the leaves or broken pieces. The wind will eventually blow them away. Move forward. See yourself experiencing all the Lord has designed for you. What do you need to release today to experience true freedom?
