No chains

“I’m so free I got no chains on me” Love this song from KB. I am free. I am free from chains that surround me constantly. But then there are days where I just feel so brought down.

Y’all know about my diagnosis of PTSD but what you may not realize is that along with those reminders of my traumas? I get those feelings of disgust.

“There’s no way God loves me after all this”

“I am a horrible human being”

Then I fight those feelings…slowly but surely.

How?

Reminding myself of truth.

18 There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.

1 John 4:18

do I still have fear after that? Of course. I’m human. But after reminding myself more and more of God’s perfect love? I finally see.

There are truly no chains on me.
