Jesus Set Me Free From All Bondage

Prior to attending my very first MITM conference in 2023, I was broken, hurting, filled with doubt and convinced that no keynote speaker was going to fix that. I had just experienced my third miscarriage one week before and was overwhelmed by the grief and the timing. I read an email in the days leading up to conference where someone shared their testimony about being able to forgive themselves. At the time, I shrugged it off because I never considered myself as a person that I needed to forgive.

During conference, I was wrecked by the presence of God in that room and feeling Him move when we prayed over each other. I was delivered from a lifetime of death being spoken over me and felt darkness being stripped from my body. I learned to love myself again, maybe even for the first time. I heard God say, “I don’t make junk!”, and when I looked up from washing my hands, I looked in the mirror and forgave the person who convinced me that junk is all I was. I decided to walk in healing as a chosen and treasured child of God.

Today, I am set free. I even got a bracelet that says set free as a daily reminder to not return to bondage. I refuse to believe the lies that the enemy sends disguised as truth. I have a renewed passion for studying the Bible. I can praise and worship again without feeling like a fraud because no matter what I face, I know I’ve built my life on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ. Faith gives me the power to live fearlessly. Faith makes it possible to look to Him with childlike wonder and an attitude of surrender and say, “I trust you.” Faith is knowing that it wasn’t a speaker who gave me breakthrough, but God’s work in my heart and whisper in my soul to choose to walk in healing and shout for joy.
