The Chains are gone

posted in: Spirit 0

One of the most powerful stories I know about breaking free from mental entrapments come from a story about a man who found himself in a Middle Eastern jail centuries ago. He was the apostle Peter, known for his intense devotion to Christ and his fiery temper. Peter found himself locked up and in line for decapitation (Acts 12). Not only was Peter in prison; he was also in chains and confined to a cramped cell with sixteen soldiers standing guard around it. In addition, to his right and to his left, he was chained to soldiers assigned to guard him, just in case he somehow tried to break free. All this happened on the eve of a trial, which would no doubt end in a death sentence. In the midst of this misery and anguish, Peter went to sleep.

As he slept, the story took a dramatic turn. “Suddenly an angel of the Lord appeared and a light shone in the cell. He struck Peter on the side and woke him up. ‘Quick, get up!’ he said, and the chains fell off Peter’s wrists” (Acts 12:7). . . .

The chains fell off Peter’s wrists. The angel did not touch them; they miraculously dropped to the ground. And the soldiers right next to Peter did not even wake up! (Acts 12:7). I believe that’s what will happen in your life as you break free from negative mind-sets and limiting thoughts about yourself. If you will ask God for the piercing revelation only He can give, He will be faithful to show you what you need to see about yourself and how your thinking needs to change. If you will learn from the pain you’ve suffered and allow it to be a catalyst for change instead of a snare that keeps you trapped in your past, you will be equipped for a better future than you’ve ever imagined.

If you will choose to walk boldly into your future with a mind-set that says, “Everything is possible for him who believes” (Mark 9:23), then the chains that have held you back will fall to the floor and you will find yourself free to fulfill your destiny, live your dreams, and experience the greatness for which you were created.

Hello beautiful souls. I'm Angielee, creator of BetterMeTribe. I'm a heart-first adventuring healer of souls. My calling is to heal the soul of the world by healing and filling one heart's cup at a time. I will teach you how to heal, fill, and overflow your own love's cup into the world, starting with the love cup inside of you. Healing and filling every area of your life so that you can overflow love into, onto, and all over others. A better world begins inside of each of us. And that is where BetterMeTribe Begins. I have had the privilege of unlocking and unblocking hearts, healing, and filling souls with the overflow method on stages big and small, in over 13 different countries on three different continents and 58 worldwide humanitarian aid mission trips. I have written eight books, three children's books that are launching soon, and this inspirational blog with over 900 heart healing posts with 50k Tribe members. I have been coaching teens and adults, one-on-one, families, groups, hosting, and speaking at events for over 20 years. But my life wasn't always like this. Through terrible traumas and a childhood that would make Stephen King have nightmares, I had to go through massive amounts of healing, forgiveness, and transformation myself. Overcoming those wounds has helped me to be able to be the best resource possible for helping others heal and use my own experiences and the experiences of many others to help as many as possible. There isn't much that someone can share with me that I have not been through, or helped someone else through. Being a natural problem solver and a deep empath, I find and pull out your strengths to become your best self. I teach you how to flow and grow through things so that you can become the beautiful being of overflow that you too were meant to be. Rising from the ashes and turning your life of pain into a life of beauty. I show people how to be love in all situations, to themselves, to others, and ultimately to the world, how to love the unlovely, even, and especially when that unlovely is us. I teach fun tools and tricks to help fill life's cup so that you are able to help others in a much bigger way than you ever thought imaginable. We can't help the sick, broken, or poor by being one of them. It is time to stop trying to serve from an empty cup running on empty fumes and overflow your own magical goodness into the world in a way that only you can. The world needs you. You need you. I need you. You are worthy of so much more than you even know, and I am here to help bring out that best self in you: transforming your life, healing one hole in your heart's cup at a time. Whatever your goal or obstacle is, I will help you flow like water through it, over it, or around it to help your soul become the majestic ocean, it is meant to be. Open your heart and allow me to pour into you, to teach you methods to keep your cup full so that you can start pouring better things into others. This is what Overflowing is all about. Allow me to overflow my love into you. Start with the search bar, search for the thing you need the most, and read those posts. Take the actions inside of them and apply them to your life. If you would like someone on one time with me, to talk deep heart to heart stuff, shoot me an email at angie@bettermetribe.com, and let's have a talk. I'm here for you. Your heart matters to me and I am here to heal it.
