Chains Broken is a journey of heartfelt inspirational Christian poetry that will encourage and uplift the soul for the young and old alike. Sherry Norton hopes that reading these poems will help you to continue the search for truth, peace, hope, and life in God and His son, Jesus Christ. Here is one poem entitled “Chains Broken”

I thought I knew my Lord and God;
but darkness fi lled my mind.
I thought I knew my Saviour’s word;
most all I knew was lies.
Fear-ignorance-bondage and control,
was mostly all my mind did know.
One day my life began to change,
My Lord and God did rearrange.
Th e chains did break and I was free,
my Lord and God He spoke to me.
my soul was starved and very dry;
His presence was for what it cried.
I love to praise His Holy Name;
God’s love has been my glorious gain.
When there are people who lead us astray;
we have to learn to forgive them and pray.
Th at their souls I will forgive;
and Gods love in them shall live. Amen.

About the Author

Sherry Norton was born in 1957, the first of three children. At the time of her birth, her parents were living in Topeka, Kansas, assigned to Forbes Air Force Base. She grew up in various places, finally landing in Fayetteville, North Carolina, where she lived with her husband, Willie Clyde Norton, for thirty-three years before his death in 2010. She is a cancer survivor and has been visually impaired all her life. After being a member of a cult for twenty-three years, Sherry says only the love and intervention of her heavenly Father brought her out of deception and darkness and trying to live under the law with little love or hope.
