Lyrical Friday - Chain Breaker

Good Friday to YOU!
Very quickly, I forgot to share with all of you how much money we collected at UTH Nation for the 30 Hour Famine. Our goal as a youth group was $5,000. I would not believe the amount if someone told me. 42 kids and leaders raised over $11,000 for the hungry kids in Haiti!!! That's is over 11,000 meals. You read that number right. Thank you for praying and donating.  If you'd like to get involved with 30 Hour Famine and get your church group involved click HERE.

Carrying on with today, it's Lyrical Friday!!! So excited to share with you today's song by Charlie Hall. 'Chain Breaker' first caught my attention bu it's title. Chains represent being held captive, a stronghold, slavery and for those like me, it represents our past. Truly Jesus is our Chain Breaker, Heart Savior, Redeemer, Life Changer and Liberator.

I pray that these lyrics may be the song of your heart. I pray that you may know, with out a shadow of doubt, that as the redeemed of the Lord you have been set free. For who the Son sets free is free indeed (John 8:36). Drop your chains, sons and daughters. Come and run into liberty. Live as the redeemed of the Lord. Seek accountability, seek fellowship and sing freedom!

Those who sat in darkness and in the shadow of death,
Bound in affliction and irons—
Because they rebelled against the words of God,
And despised the counsel of the Most High,
Therefore He brought down their heart with labor;
They fell down, and there was none to help.
Then they cried out to the LORD in their trouble,
And He saved them out of their distresses.
He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death,
And broke their chains in pieces.
Psalm 107:10-14

Stand fast therefore in the liberty by which Christ has made us free, and do not be entangled again with a yoke of bondage.
Galatians 5:1

Chain Breaker, Charlie Hall
