“But about midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns of praise to God, and the prisoners were listening to them; and suddenly there came a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison house were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were unfastened” (Acts 16: 25-26).

The earthquaking experiences of life that inevitably come can leave us shaken to our very foundations.  While these experiences would seek to imprison us to an existence of fear, worry, and dread, they may, on the other hand, be the means by which God works to unfasten us from chains of unrealized potential.  The pain of your present moment eventually gives way to God’s providence and new possibilities.
