Don’t hop on board a train that’s not headed for your destination! Don’t risk your ANOINTING or your life, just to follow the in-crowd! Never find yourself reaching for the very things God told you to “drop off at the FINISHED LINE”. STOP enabling folks in their dysfunctions – it hinders their growth, and blocks their lessons, that are GOD ordained. Never allow “other people problems or OPP” to blur your vision and hinder YOU from resolving your own issues! Never allow guilt and shame to setup camp in your mind, holding you “hostage” to the wants, needs, and actions of others! Don’t allow folks to control and manipulate you just because they are angry; “stuck in pity, waddling in sorrow” and REFUSE to make a change! The only thing “I” can do for folks is pray for them, give them a word of advice (from the Scriptures) if they are open and receptive; and point them to Jesus – who can “renew their mind” with the washing of the Word! I can’t (and won’t) carry the weight of their burdens on my back….because Jesus said…”cast your cares onto me; my yoke is easy and my burden is light! (Matthew 11:30) There’s NO WEIGHT that the GLORY of God cannot handle, and JESUS SAVES! It’s time to stop naming and blaming; nursing, rehearsing, and cursing others just because they can’t supply your needs. REMEMBER: The cart overturned on the road ahead, is a warning to the one behind, and a bend in the road is NOT the end of the road, unless you refuse to make the turn!
Proverbs 3:5 says…”Trust in the lord with all your heart, lean not to your own understanding”! We can’t constantly focus on the failures of yesterday, carrying regrets into tomorrow! It’s time to “roll away the stone”…let go of anger, bitterness, jealousy, offense, and whatever is BLOCKING your progress! It’s time to allow GOD to manifest your blessings for the future; after all, God is in control of this UNIVERSE! AMEN!
