All Tangled Up

"Organizing the Tangle" photo by Sally L. Smith

Sometimes my own words ensnare me and I feel trapped...tangled in obligations that I can't possibly complete.  The Bible is very specific when one finds oneself in this situation.  Proverbs, the Book of Wisdom, relates this prescription for entanglement. 

[If] you are trapped
    by your own words, and you are now in the power

 of someone else.
Here is what you should do:
Go and beg for permission
 to call off the agreement.
Do this before you fall asleep
  or even get sleepy.
Save yourself, 
just as a deer or a bird
tries to escape
from a hunter.
Proverbs 6:2-5 CEV

Go now and start unraveling your tangled mess.
