August 18 – Broken Bonds
Loose the fetters that bind me to earth and material things.
They shall be loosed. Even now your prayer is being answered. But you can only be completely released as you live with Me more and more.
Thought-freedom from self-claims comes by a process of substitution. For every claim of self, substitute My claim. For every thought of fear or resentment substitute a thought of security in Me and of Joy in My Service. For every thought of limitation, or helplessness, substitute one of the Power of a Spirit-aided life.
Do this persistently. At first with deliberate effort, until it becomes an almost unconscious habit. The fetters will snap and gradually you will realize the wonder of your freedom.
