God doesn’t want you to be bound, unless it’s to Him. Bondage of the world leaves you empty, lonely, and ultimately ravaged. But the bonds of love that hold us in His arms are comforting, convicting, and correcting. We learn often the paradox of captivity being our freedom; something that appears to be holding us back is really holding us up. It is not a matter of being cruelly incarcerated, but protected. It is not a prison with no freedom, but liberty to move about without fear of destruction. A harness of grace keeps us on course, and gives us another chance when we slip.
