And the Chains Fell Off

November 9, 2017 holderduo@yahoo.com Hope (Freedom)

   Chains fasten and connect things. Chains are a restraining device. They are restricting.  In the Bible, chains represent “oppression.”   They are called “fetters.”  The prisoners were bound with fetters.  Fetters are confining. They limit you, enclose you, surround you.  These prisoners were “men of God.”  Christians can have chains. The good news is….God can […]

Several things have come to me as I’m praying for alcoholics.  For family members trying to help someone struggling with alcohol, go to ALAnon meetings.  This will help you and open your eyes to see what you all are dealing with…and… they have resources.  It will be support for YOU as you walk through this […]

Thumbs Down!

REJECTED!   Someone doesn’t like what you said or did or you get the feeling “they just don’t like me.” You feel rejected or you perceive rejection coming from them.  No one likes to […]
