Welcome to a Special Post titled “Enslaved”(as you can see above😁). So this is the first post of the never ending Series, “The 29th Series.” You’ll find out why it’s called that when you’re done reading. This ride can get emotional, heart-touching and speak to your soul, if you read it like you actually want to and not like you’re hurrying to go somewhere(but if you actually are, then it’s best you read it later. It’ll still be here😉). So sit back and read like you actually want to and I hope it speaks to YOU(yes, you).
Google says slavery is the state of being a slave. Then I had to ask her, who then is a slave? “a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them.” she said. Oh Google, Slavery is not only when you’re a legal property of a person. It is so much more than that.
A man can be enslaved by sin. It controls him, becomes his master, oppresses him, forces him to obey it and never lets him go. The man tries to escape but there’s no use, he’s in chains and is a Slave to that Sin.
This man I tell you of, was once me. I didn’t know how I got in, neither did I know how I could get out. I struggled and kept fighting, but the more I did, the more it oppressed me. For years I tried, but it always caught me escaping and sent its men to draw me right back into it.
I was a slave to sin, trapped in bondage with no way out. I cried so many times, looking for ways to run away from my oppressor. But it always had the upper hand. I was enslaved by sin.
I had lost all hope and was stuck between two sides. I wanted to go all out and be free, but then it held back my left foot; drawing me back each time.
My foolish self accepted to stay in between, partly in and partly out. But then truly, “How can a slave serve two masters and not be disloyal to one?”
I was scared when I met Him. Because how can I be for Him, when I’ve been a slave to sin for years? I started seeing Him partly, while I still served it. He offered me freedom, but still I was scared to take His hand.
Why did he offer this to me? Why me? Why not one of the other slaves? Why did He choose me? The more time I spent with Him, I felt a few of my chains breaking slowly. Still, I stayed in between two sides and kept pondering on questions I knew I couldn’t answer.
On the 29th of May 2020, ALL my chains were broken at last. I realised I couldn’t die a slave to sin, when the One who made me granted me FREEWILL.
“Shackled by a heavy burden, underneath a load of guilt and shame. Then the hand of Jesus touched me, and now I am no longer the same.”
I ran out of sin and into His arms. I cried bitterly at His feet, pouring out my heart to Him. He saved me and set me free from all my chains. Even with all my wasted years, He still didn’t leave me to rot in chains.
Oh the peace that filled my heart! The joy I felt despite all the tears on my face. It was certainly unexplainable. This wasn’t even all, but rather just the start.
He introduced me to The Comforter, who’s now a Friend. I spoke words I never imagined I could ever speak. Was this really me? The one who was enslaved for so many years? Look at me now, FREE at last.
All my heavy burdens were lifted. He freed me from every chain that held me bound. I’m no longer a slave to fear, rather, a child of God. He broke every chain; I’m no longer a slave, I am a child of God.
Don’t die a slave. Join me in this freedom and peace that can only be found in Him. I know you’re scared that you’ve been in too deep. Don’t be, He will never cast you out. He’s waiting for you with open arms, just step into them now.
Come to Him and He will give you rest. I ran to Him and look at me now, as free as a bird. He broke every chain, I am no longer a slave, I am a child of GOD.
“He touched me. Oh, He touched me! And oh, the joy that floods my soul; Something happened, and now I know. He touched me and made me whole.”
