I finally fished this painting early this morning. I decided to call it Freedom. I am so thankful for God giving me my freedom through Christ. Lord knows how much I need my Savior to fix me and make me whole again. I sat here and stared at the chains and shackle for a week before deciding to add in the different afflictions we, as humans, face and fight against every day. It hit me hard this morning. Then I was brought to Romans 8, verses 1 and 2:
“Therefore, there is now no condemnation for those that are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit who gives life has set you free from the law of sin and death.”
It’s just that simple! All of these things that bind us down are broken through the blood and name of Jesus! I praise the name of God and His son Jesus! Glory to God alone!
