Simply Amazing

Misarable as can be
Tied up from head to my knee
Restless like the deep blue sea
A slave dying to be free

That God would become like me
In order to rescue me
Is so amaazing to me
Thank God I'm forever free

    A gem within a gem! Like the inner beauty in all of us struggling to be free. As we meditate, the Higher Self releases the shackles that have imprisoned us for far too long. Howard, it's simply amazing how you keep coming up with these gems.

    Freedom is man's basic right. Slavery or bondage is against the dignity of man. The journey from bondage to freedom is beautifully expressed here.

    The Son of God assumed man's image and came down to Earth and lived like a man and finally died on the cross to redeem mankind! His love is amazing and now we are all free from the bondage of sin! Great write!
