Bound around one’s ankles so close to the skin that one fears they will go to the grave with them attached.
No one knows how to safely remove them without injuring themselves.
If they did – they wouldn’t be wearing them.
Addictions wound around the heart like seaweed wrapped around the legs of the dock, or roots of weeds strangling life out of a garden’s treasure.
So hard to remove.
But not impossible.
What troubles you this day?
What ensnares your heart?
Take it to the King.
He has purchased your freedom.
All you need do is ask.
He will give you the key.
