Emotional Bondage

Updated on January 10, 2012

With many male/female relationships some may find themselves emotionally attached but on the extreme side being in emotional bondage.

With emotional bondage these types of chains invisibly bind a person to one another, not only chaining their emotions but chaining their thought and mind processes where they get to the point of ignoring or not recognizing the negative impact of this bondage.

I came across an old journal entry of mine that I had written when I was frustrated with my ex-boyfriend back in April of '06. I was in an emotional wreck. I was going back and forth on how he supposedly loved me, but his actions did not show it. I was upset, confused, and angry and felt rejected but then I was stoked that someone was there who supposedly loved me.

It was like a web of deceit had been spun with my emotions and the cobwebs were starting to set-up in my mind. Setting forth unnatural attachments that I knew didn't line up with God's promises. Wanting to let go, but then wanting to stay, back and forth, but 2 months later I finally gave it up.

If I would have stayed any longer those cobwebs of attachment would have continued to fill my mind. One must recognize the negative emotional attachments that possibly are being set-up:

Is your relationship truly exemplifying a Godly relationship?

Do you find yourself doing and say things based on your emotions only?

Prayer:

Lord I come to you today praying for emotional stability in relationships. Please show your people that you care for every inch of their being including their emotions. Show them what love really is and let them see it reflected in their relationships in your will Lord. For you Lord, everything is for your glory; break the ties of emotional bondage so they might have toxic emotional deliverance and self control. Amen.
