Pray for Families (Prison of Sin)

Greetings Prayer Warriors,


In my readings, I came upon the concept of sin as a prison.  I felt very compelled to ponder this.  It occurred to me that sin is a prison of our own making. We sin when we become obsequious to our own will.  We store up earthly treasures, cater to our passions, and label  this "joy".  To protect this, we build a fortress around our heart, but rather than keeping the enemy away, it exiles us with the enemy.  This joy soon becomes an acronym for the Joke's On You!

"The LORD, the LORD, a merciful and gracious God, slow to anger and rich in kindness and fidelity.  Exodus 34:6

Luckily for us the good Lord awaits our surrender.   Lower the drawbridge of your heart, so that Love can come in and transform your life. Surrender to freedom, because the Lord has given us the freedom to surrender.  Now in His will, you will find true indescribable joy.

Be a beacon of joy for your family.  Pray for them,  as well as all families.

Peace, Joy, and Love,
Janet

Share the joy.   http://simplyinspiredprayer.blogspot.com/
