Breaking the Shackles

During our last pre-teen devotional we discussed a problem most of us face as Christians. We like to hold on to the burdens that weigh us down. We struggle, because we don’t turn everything over to Jesus. It may be bad habits, bad company or any other sin in which we are entangled. To demonstrate…
