Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance!


"Shackles (Praise You)"
Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you(What'cha wanna do?)I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise you
I'm gonna praise you
In the corners of mind
I just can't seem to find a reason to believe
That I can break free
Cause you see I have been down for so long
Feel like the hope is gone
But as I lift my hands, I understand
That I should praise you through my circumstance
Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise youI just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise youI'm gonna praise you
Everything that could go wrong
All went wrong at one time
So much pressure fell on me
I thought I was gon lose my mind
But I know you wanna see
If I will hold on through these trials
But I need you to lift this load
Cause I can't take it anymore
Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise youI just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
And I'm gonna praise youI'm gonna praise you
Been through the fire and the rainBound in every kind of way
But God has broken every chain
So let me go right now
Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance
I just wanna praise you
I just wanna praise you
You broke the chains now I can lift my hands
I just wanna praise you.....

Fear
Worry
Sin
Jealousy
Hatred
Unforgiveness
Selfishness
Greed
I am free!
Take the shackles off my feet so I can dance!

Hi Tracy,

Thanks for your comment on my blog. I love your design!

I love the story about the tooth fairy. We had to fire our tooth fairly last fall because she just was not performing up to par ;-)

Hey. Did you put these lyrics on your blog just for me? It's interesting how you wrote them a few days ago, and I am reading them today - on the day that I am struggling with hope. If I had read these lyrics a few days ago, they wouldn't have meant much to me.

I've been having a pity party today and planned to just go to bed early and sleep it off. But, somehow God got me to read blogs and even post tonight. It ended up being a great night of growth and healing. Thanks for your contribution.

One of my FAVORITE songs! Amy and I want to do this in church some day (if they are ready? :) God has already freed me from so much - and is willing to do more. The challenge is, am I willing to let Him peel my fingers away and let go?

By the way, the new bike is here and it's everything and MORE than I had hoped. It's like giving Maxine (the greeting card lady) a Mazarati :) I have prayed, and will continue to pray, that God lets the bike, and my love of Him and biking, to touch people's lives for Him.

By the way, our women's bike weekend will be September 20-21. 64 miles in 2 days on a rails to trails bike trail, with some awesome pizza and an overnight. Feel free to block out the weekend and join us if you can.
