Breaking The Shackles: Stepping Out of a Lame State of Mind is my tool for ministering to those who are in crippling situations; hopefully, it will be a beacon of hope for...the impotent folk, the blind, the halt, the withered, and those waiting for the moving of the water (John 5:3). Breaking The Shackles is an attempt to delve into the abyss of our helplessness and nothingness to help create an understanding of what it takes to arise from any lame condition. Breaking The Shackles could be considered an access tool, which will allow each of us to assess and access the possibilities of our faithfulness as the key to what it takes to stand firmly in the midst of our storms.
