Shackles - Mary Mary
“Take these shackles off my feet so I can dance!” Living for God is not easy, and this awesome song by my favorite ladies of Mary Mary-explain this in “Shackles”, a Christian dance song released in the early 2000s. I was still very green as a sports reporter and was faced with discrimination early on in my career. This was not a simple task, and had to fight daily the temptation to quit, and just run and hide. “Take these shackles off my feet so I can dance! I just want to praise you. I just want to praise you!” This song was instrumental in keeping my focus on the Lord, not just on people or myself. In turn, this helped me finish the race and overcome difficulties.
