Chains fell off

This was the line from a song that I kept singing over and over yesterday afternoon (no, really?!).

The torment in my head has been broken.  It is truth that sets us free.

To go from depths I can not describe to a feeling of freedom almost forgotten is worth celebrating with the rest of my life.

A counselor who I was seeing last year spoke a blessing in my life and declared that all things unsettled would come to pass before I died.  I can say that all things are settled now, but it did not mean then I wouldn’t live for a good 50 years more as my pastor is praying.

Either way, it is well with my soul I feel.  It is time to live now, dying can come later and I feel released from the pressure of time to find peace before that time comes.

There may still be a way to go to clean up the mess of the past, but I do so knowing that the end result is not at all absent of goodness and mercy.  They shall follow me all the days of my life.

Peace be with you, and also with me.

‘My chains fell off’… ‘it is well with my soul’…

Makes me want to burst into a very soulful rendition of How Great Thou Art!!

Man o man… Baptist roots go deep! :)
