BFA 'Breaking Free' Life Skills & Support Group Begins November 17th!

"The best of our churches tend to welcome those captive (to alcohol, drugs, homosexuality, promiscuity, and so forth.) at first, but if they don't 'fix' pretty quickly, they will probably be despised. We like success stories--powerful testimonies. A captive in our midst soon wears out her welcome if she doesn't get with it pretty quickly.  In gracious contrast, God stands by us until we are free.  He uses various forms of discomfort to woo us to Him, but He never forsakes us.  God is the only One who is not repelled by the depth & length of our needs."  -Beth Moore, Breaking Free

"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good!     
His faithful love endures forever.
Has the Lord redeemed you? Then speak out!     
Tell others he has redeemed you from your enemies.
For he has gathered the exiles from many lands,     
from east and west, from north and south.

 Some sat in darkness and deepest gloom,     
imprisoned in iron chains of misery.
They rebelled against the words of God,     
scorning the counsel of the Most High.
That is why he broke them with hard labor;    
they fell, and no one was there to help them.
“Lord, help!” they cried in their trouble,     
and he saved them from their distress.
He led them from the darkness and deepest gloom;     
he snapped their chains.

Let them praise the Lord for his great love     
and for the wonderful things he has done for them.
For he broke down their prison gates of bronze;     
he cut apart their bars of iron.
Some were fools; they rebelled     
and suffered for their sins.

They couldn’t stand the thought of food,     
and they were knocking on death’s door.
“Lord, help!” they cried in their trouble,     
and he saved them from their distress.
He sent out his word and healed them,     
snatching them from the door of death.

Let them praise the Lord for his great love     
and for the wonderful things he has done for them.
Let them offer sacrifices of thanksgiving     
and sing joyfully about his glorious acts."
Psalm 107: 1-3; 10-22 NLT

"Few truly know the unfailing love of God like the captive set free" - Beth Moore, Breaking Free
