Happy Wednesday folks!
I hope your week has gone extremely well thus far.
I wanted to speak to you briefly along the lines of yesterday’s blog. Just as empowering as the word No is, confrontation is empowering as well. (Reference yesterday’s blog) Now don’t get me wrong, I’m not telling you to go pick fights with everyone, but I’m saying there are issues that need to be resolved that are keeping you from growth. These issues could be with family members, co-workers, church leadership, or even your spouse or children. I used those examples on purpose because sometimes confronting means the risk of loosing a close relationship. I alluded to this yesterday and I’ll say it again today, anything that promotes you to loose yourself must be dealt with properly.
There is a scripture, to be exact Hebrews 12:1 that says, “let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.” Growing up I heard the scripture explained in terms of sin, doubt or disbelief. As well as the aforementioned we have to consider that unresolved issues are just as weighty as blatant sin. It creates a weight on your emotions that is a direct effect to your Faith and we all know that it is impossible to please God without Faith. Not to mention, unresolved issues has a direct effect on your physical body.
Today I want to challenge you to make a list of every un-dealt with issue and make a deadline where you will handle every issue. I believe your next days will be your better days, but there must be some preparation on your part or you won’t be able to experience better at the magnitude that has been set for you. Clear up the baggage and prepare to move forward, confronting EVERYTHING that has been weighing you down!
