Ever see those commercials depicting small animals, like ducks or baby seals tangled up in plastic trash, unable to swim, eat or break free? Ocean life often become trapped in garbage or nets and unless freed, struggle and slowly die. Sin works the same way, catching us unaware until it has us so tangled we can’t break free on our own, our spirit and life slowly dying as we drift farther and farther from our savior.
Recognize the trash in your life before it chokes the life out of you. Whether it’s something big like drugs or maybe eating to feel better or small things like not forgiving someone who hurts you, don’t let it get a strong hold on your life. The cure? Turn everything over to Christ and let him help you break free.
Prayer: In the name of Jesus, I turn over to you Lord _______-and ask you to forgive me. Because of your forgiveness, I forgive myself. I receive blessings and grace, knowing you have made me in your image. Amen!
