Dear Reader: Break Away

Dear Reader, I’m not sure how my words will find you when you read them, but I pray that they find you well and bring you hope and perspective.

There are some things in life that broke you, they left you hurting and filled with pain. These things have made themselves known in your life for far too long, and they have often robbed you of your joy, happiness, and peace. There’s going to be some pain, there’s going to be some discomfort, and there will be some struggles as you break away. But the (Godly) breakthroughs of this season are going to require you to break away from the things that have been hindering and holding you back. So, break away from the criticism, and break away from the fear of what others might say, because it’s time for your breakthrough: your breakthrough of peace, your breakthrough of joy, and your breakthrough of happiness.

Dear Reader, God wants you to break away, and He wants you to know that this is your season for break throughs. Become optimistic about your future, and let go of anything that has been holding you back, because, Beloved, this is your season to break away.

I pray that you find freedom, and I pray that you will find the courage to break away, for, Beloved, what may be working for someone else may not be working for you.

As I wrote to you this week, Dear Reader, I was reminded of the lyrics and chorus of the song, ‘Breakaway’ by Kelly Clarkson. For years I have listened to this song, often on repeat; I pray that its words will reach and become meaningful to you, too. Here are a few words from the song, and when you have a moment, be sure to listen to it in its entirety:

“I’ll spread my wings and I’ll learn how to fly

I’ll do what it takes ’til I touch the sky

And I’ll make a wish, take a chance, make a change

And breakaway.


Out of the darkness and into the sun

But I won’t forget all the ones that I love

I’ll take a risk, take a chance, make a change

And breakaway.”

Dear Reader, take a risk, take a chance, and make a change, and continue to trust God even in the most difficult places, because He will see to it that you make it to the destination of His promises. I want you to know that you are not alone, and it is my prayer that this column will make you feel as though you have a place to belong and somewhere to call home.
