Sometimes we feel trapped by the circumstances we are passing through or by our feelings. These circumstances can be various, every now and then, things on the outside (external) make life difficult, like other people or situations in which we find ourselves. At times, things inside (internal) make life difficult, like fears and low self-esteem.

  • Are you feeling trapped? If yes, what is making you feel trapped?
  • Take a lock template and on it, write or draw that something is making you trapped.
  • Crawl into the cage and peg the lock onto the wire.
  • As soon as you leave the cage, run or walk around, thanking God for helping you become freer and better.
