Captured, But Not Held

A military leader was discussing the logistics of warfare. “Just because you can capture a city doesn’t mean you can hold it,” he said.

This made me think of the numerous times when I’ve been trapped by calamity, illness, bad choices (my own, and others’), and poverty of various sorts. The enemy of our souls works against us, seeking to capture us and cause our destruction.

We can be trapped, momentarily held back. Restricted. Bound, not free. But we cannot be held forever. Divine Love and Truth will liberate us. In this awareness is confidence, power, and hope.
