The shameful voices of rejection, abandonment and abuse, chain people to a painful past.
They need Him to write a miracle into the script of their lives.
The Miracle Maker and the Misfits! Watch for it.

INTRODUCING...THE MIRACLE MAKER AND THE MISFITS.
...There is none so deaf as he who listens to the wrong voices...
...There is none so bound as he who is chained to lies...
His home was a graveyard. No person could tame or restrain him, for he was very strong. He could pull the outward shackles in pieces with his own bear hands. But the chains that held him to his thoughts, he could not bend.
His is a true story. (from Mark chap. 5). He lived where dead people were buried. Day and night he was tormented and cried out in anguish. He bruised and cut himslef with stones.
Then a great miracle happened! Someone bigger than the voices of lies stepped into his life. Those chaining him to such emotional misery and shame were commanded to leave by the greatest voice of authority, truth, and power! The demons behind the lying voices were rushed into a herd of swine, causing the pigs to run violently into the sea and drown.
He wasn't the same after that. His mind was healed and he was free. His address changed. He walked out of that graveyard of darkness and death and into the Kingdom of Truth and Light.
And, I wondered why the people asked Jesus to leave the region. Why weren't they happy that this man could now be in the land of the living, healed and free? What would be the reaction if such a miracle happened today? And I heard these words, "Write about it."
So, I write because..Today there are so many hurting people. Haunting voices from abuse, abandonment, and rejections have chased many to a graveyard of despair. Deep inside, where eyes cannot see, people are chained by invisible hands to emotional wounds and to their past. I write because..It is my prayer that these people would direct their cry for help to the Miracle Maker.
In such brokenness, people are ripe for a miracle. But, they must turn to the powerful voice of truth. "And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." (John 8:32).
