But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea. (Matthew 18:6, KJV)
That millstone held me captive too
Years after the abuse, I still suffered shame and lack of self-esteem. I didn’t believe that I was worthy of love and suffered from a life-threatening eating disorder.
Counseling helped a little but I finally found my freedom in Jesus Christ. God healed my mind.
Isaiah 61:7 – Instead of your shame you will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace you will rejoice in your inheritance. And so you will inherit a double portion in your land, and everlasting joy will be yours (NIV).
Give up your millstone. Freedom is available through Jesus.
Prayer – Lord God, thank you! Amen
