Are you in Bondage to Guilt, Shame or Self-Pity?

If you are in bondage to any of these things, you are not alone. If anything, you have more company then you want! 

Just like a Jukebox, we have songs inside of us. But most of the time they are programed to play when we least want to hear them, listen to them, or be controlled by their negativism - whether we realize they're playing or not!

Here's some of the songs - you can add your own: 
* You will Never Amount to Anything Worthwhile.
* You'll Always be a Failure.
* Oh, Pitiful Me!
* You're not Unique or Valuable.
* No one Loves Me and I Don't Love Them!
* I can't do Anything Right!
... on and on they go

These type of songs need to be cleared out of your Jukebox! Some were placed there while you were growing up; unconsciously by loved ones, wrong thoughts you were led to think about or taught to believe, or just part of your human nature. Regardless, they need to go!

Songs that lift your spirit, enlarge your heart and help make you a better person are available! These songs replace the old tattered and torn slave mentality songs of undesired harsh task masters!

Here are some Plus songs:
✞ He Bears Us up on Eagles Wings!
✞ Fret Not, You are Loved with an Everlasting Love!
✞ He Calls Me His Beloved!
✞ He Paid My Debt!
✞ Forever in His Grace!
✞ Keep On the Sunny Side of the Street!

When we allow circumstances and difficulties  (which there are many in this world) get us down, we need to know that we don't have live that way anymore! Instead of giving in to self-pity, or even entertaining (thinking about) destructive and condemning thoughts, we need to stop and put on a different song! We need to listen to Good Songs to keep us sane!!

Actually, what we are experiencing is the consequences and the results of "sin." How's that? Because the nature of sin is separation from God, and from living the True life He created us to live; abiding in His Love - with Him in our hearts and lives. 

If you're not experiencing the Love of God in your heart or your life you'll continue to have these other sin filled things controlling you; ruining your life and those around you. Or, you can defeat the foe (your enemy) with God's help!

God  calls you His Beloved. Let Him put new songs in your heart and replace the songs that are based in guilt, shame and self-pity! He'll give you songs that are based in His Perfect Love for you, songs of Truth and Peace.

How? Believe HIM. 
Those who "Call upon the Name of the LORD will be saved!" 

And that's for here and now, today - you have a Advocate! A Champion! The God of the Universe Loves "you!"

Call now! "LORD help me to know you. HELP me to receive Your love inside of me and in my heart. Put Your songs in my Jukebox! Give me a new and precious song to live Today, and for ever more. Thank YOU!"

Songs of "JOY" fill your heart and mind!
"Rejoice! again I say, Rejoice in the Freedom, Liberty and Goodness of the LORD!"
