Your great escape probably won’t be an extravagant tunnel built to help you get out of a maximum security prison.

And I hope that you’re never in a situation where you are in physical danger that requires you to leave so that you feel safe again.

If you’re like most people, your great escape will be something quite different.

It will be when you realise that you don’t have to be a prisoner of your past.

When you remember that while you have a choice, you’re not trapped.  And know that you always have a choice.

When you understand that the limits on your capacity have been placed by yourself.

When you see more opportunities around you than restrictions.

When you are no longer restricted by the negative words that others have spoken over you, but are emboldened by the positive words that you speak to yourself.

When you stop waiting for permission from others and give yourself the green light to go for your goals with gusto.

When you know in your heart that through Jesus, God has forgiven your mistakes and has a magnificent plan for your future.

If you feel trapped by your current situation, make the great escape.

Change the world.
