HE KNOWS BY JEREMY CAMP
Bound in Fetters
By Jonathon Shaw
I'm walking in the dark, in the place were Jesus was crucified. Looking up and seeing a cross on a hill with a light shinning around it, I start to move towards the cross but I can't something is stopping me.
Looking down I see that there are chains arounf my neck, hands and feet. The chains are attached to something in the darkness behind me. What is it, what's holding me back, I thought. I can see a pair of red eyes
staring at me through the darkness, his demon hands holding tightly to my chains. "Where are you going, get back here" says the beast. Crying out i plead, "Lord help me," but He doesn't answer me. All I see is the
cross on the hill with a light shinning around it.
Pushing against my chains I muster my strength in an attempt to move forward; blood is running down my neck, hands and feet as I struggle to reach the bottom of the hill. I have to climb up it. I have to make it up the
hill where the cross is.
But the demon is pulling harder on my chains he's slashing my body and whispering in my ear, " what are you hoping to find on the top of the hill; you're nothing to Jesus. You're worthless in the eyes of God." he wants
me to let go of the rocks, he pulls at me to bring me back in to the darkness but I can't, I have to get to the cross.
I hear two of my favorite scriptures, "Come to me all of you who larbor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for i am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest
for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light." (matthew 11:28-29). Put on the full armor of god so that you can take your stand against the devils schemes, (Ephesians 6:11).
Have I failed God, is that why I'm hearing those scriptures? Weeping, all I want to do is bow down before His glory, to be with my savior Jesus and to feel free. To bask in the golry of the Father, Son and Holy Spirit;
but I'm not worthy of walking through the gates of heaven. I'm just about to let go, to fall in to the darkness when Jesus grabs me by the hand and saves me. My chains break off and the darkness is gone and only
light is shinning around me.
Kneeling down in front of the cross with Jesus kneeling beside me, He lays his hand on my shoulder and says, "why do you think you are not worth of my forgiveness; I can feel the sin that is beating you down and
I can hear you crying out for forgiveness and I have forgiven you. " Hugging me He added. : i died for you, Jonathon. Now live for me, I will always be with you! "

I am a part of a group called Team in Training and we raise money and compete in marathons benefiting the Leukemia and Lymphoma society. Contact your local branch and they will get you in touch with the services office. We raise money so the family and patient can have a chance. There are funds available. I will say a prayer and place his name on my race shirt for the Portland marathon if you wish. All my love and prayers!
Praying for you Danny! Given time sobriety will be the habit and it is so worth the effort. I'm 4 years now and can't imagine going back. God bless you in your effort to stay sober-hope you have a church home and are keeping in the Word. It is vital to stay strong in the Lord, I recommend the daily devotional Jesus calling - the app or book both phenomenal! God bless you!!
Thank you for your faithfulness and courage to stand in the gap for my granddaughter. I too will stand with you God is bringing you and your family together through you.
Thank you for praying for us. Praise Jesus!!! My son has been hired by the local school district as a bus driver and is currently in training. Please continue to pray for him for healing from flu-like symptoms. He is tough and trying to do what he needs to do for this new job inspite of being sick. God is his strength even though he doesn't realize it!!!
Also, pray for life issues and realities my grandson, Shadeau, is facing and struggling to deal with.
Thank you for your continued prayer.

I pray that it will bless you like it has blessed me.
