No longer that me

August has come and is almost gone and saying goodbye to the old me til I’m no longer that me is still in progress. Less than half the year remains to live. I sense change. But then change is every day isn’t it? I sense a stepping forward. But then every day is that day too.

Some need the motivation of a gentle tog, strong urge, raised voice or hit on the head to step onward. I want to be unafraid of obeying The One Who wants me prepared. I want to be free from sabotage. But how?

I encourage you today to take one step today to make room for something new. An exercise, cleaning a drawer, giving away clothes, revamping the garage or attic are all action steps help you say goodbye to an old you.

If I’m not going to use it maybe it’s time to lose it. My mini project today is to go through a box of old journals all the way to 1993. I began to write out my life as a new follower of Christ and honestly I’m no longer the person in those pages. Time to say goodbye. Maybe this step will free me from more of me – but even if it’s just giving me an empty container – it will be worth it. What’s this got to do with sabotage? My junk is always in my way. I ignore it and then Im entangled with it when deep inside I DO know what to do. I just don’t do it. My mind gets jumbled with so much and I’m overwhelmed with it … because I won’t do that one thing. After a while a thousand one things sabotage my next step and I’m enslaved…trapped..by me and my refusal to just do that one thing.

Interestingly that August is the 8th month and eight means means a cutting away. Many think it means a new day. But really… It is the cutting a way that brings the newness.

I’ve been contemplating for a month or so on what comes out of my mouth. I believe I need to prune my words. My mouth is my greatest place of sabotage. It will have to be a conscious effort to create a new culture. Everywhere we turn, people complain. We complain about what we eat, who said what, how we are treated, what the news says, how we look, how someone else behaves, what we wear, the weather, the president, the preacher, this country, that company. It’s easy to get wrapped up and sucked into your own or your neighbors opinion/words.

We fill ourselves with negativity while using excuses like venting, praying, or processing. Yet what is it really? We lack self control while exercising our freedom to be free.

I’m not sure my own opinion warrants words anymore. I seem to sabotage my own life as soon as I have a new one. My mouth.

What about you? Do you have a negative perspective about yourself that dominates you?

How about joining me in an all out fast from complaining? From complaining to celebrating. This is the intention. Let me know if you want to grow?? If so, gossip and complaining about you and others has to go.

Fast from complaining about you and those with you. Think of create ways to correct yourself and those with you. I’ve started and I’m having to literally start by shutting up because when I realize how it was gonna come out of my mouth???????…. I realized I’m a big problem. I can’t stop those around me from their negative talk about them or me. But it’s like God nudged me and showered me with Love and showed me a new path. I can see how if I will lead the way- over time I’ll get it. If I will respond with kindness when someone criticizes me then it will diffuse what could turn ugly if I got offended by them.

I’m not sure I even know how to be a complain free person. But I’m starting today to clean up my mouth while on the way to clean out a container. Maybe there will be a correlation? Unsure. I just know my mouth is powerful and it can be used for building up or tearing down. I caught myself tearing down late last night through emotions that should have been reigned in.

Sabotage is not my friend. Venting is not my friend. Making a point is not my friend. Having the last word? Not my friend.

Celebration is my friend. It must be intentional or it won’t happen.

Jesus had the last word. Well He had a couple- Forgive them and It is finished. So, I’m forgiven and the ones with me are forgiven. I’m gonna lean into being forgiven and forgiving and lean into what’s been finished so I can finish..

Until soon and much love… I’m going to have a cup of coffee and celebrate a new beginning. Then, Im going to drink some water. Then?? I’m headed out to get ONE container to empty…that hopefully will lead to some more. Granted my house is going to want food so as soon as I’m in a groove I’ll need to stop for a fueling. This is not sabotage. This is love. For me. For them.

Slowly I’m learning to see me as Christ sees me. The clincher is to see others as Christ sees them – that’s the mark of change. I have failed in this arena. But today is still my new day as I learn to say goodbye to an old me and I learn to embrace a new me…on my way to celebrate the me who has yet to be on my way to the container filled with what is no longer me…

Your Next Step

True freedom is not always a wow. True freedom is one step at a time that you can take hold of and keep. I would rather take one step and it be mine then take 100 steps and be kicked back 50 of them and feel condemned for not “keeping my freedom.” It’s not always a soulish situation and it’s not always a spiritual situation. Sometimes it’s a lot of emotional frequencies trapped inside your body from a bunch of trauma where your butt got kicked. It’s honestly not always a deliverance issue. True emotional freedom and emotional transformation is possible…

DeJaVu w Crystal McClung

Guest writer – Crystal McClung with Radiant Joy Consulting, LLC

dé·jà vu

noun

a feeling of having already experienced the present situation.

I have had dé·jà vu my entire life. Moments in time, as if it’s happened before. There are many theories of why this happens. Feel free to google those but in this moment I want to share my working definition.

These moments of absolute clarity down to the very fabric of a curtain, time of day, furniture placement and location often take me aback. I’ve come to learn for me they are prophetic moments that when they do come In that dé·jà vu moment, they are a confirmation of where I am supposed to be.

Tonight I had another one. I have only lived in my home since October. All day I’ve been preparing the basement area for another Identity Vision Board Workshop tomorrow. As I picked something up it hit, full blown, a moment in time and yet I had been here before. No mistaking the curtains that had been left by the previous owner, the classroom setup, the time, etc. And in that moment I had confirmation of where I was physically, leading in passion, feeling in emotion, and healing in life. I welled up, thankful for all things.

How do you know you are right where you’re supposed to be? God confirms His best plans in many ways. Take a moment and ask Him. Expect Him to answer; He will. You have a place here. One of honor, destiny, planning, and love. Receive it from Him today.

Going crazy??

I used to be the one in torment and I used to think I was going crazy. My work was impacted. My school. My marriage, my family. You name it. I was destroying it. My life was going nowhere. But nobody knew. But I got answers that made sense, thankfully without drugs to numb me or dull the pain or confusion. It took time. I was worth it. There ARE reasons for unexplained emotions that run out of control. These deep areas can be addressed so you can think with clarity and access who you really are… Cycles of sickness and anxiety are sometimes trapped and simply need released. Don’t give up hope.

I’m thankful for solid answers and healing in deep places that allowed me to experience valid and long lasting transformation. I am not the same person. My change did not happen overnight but it was worth it. Your future does not have to be your past. Don’t give in to giving up. The answers are inside you – both the good and the bad – the happy and sad – it all right there. Not for a few. All can see and all can find – the solution in time. Blessings..

Fear & hatred

You’re shut down but you can’t say because nobody would believe you anyway. Your mind is overwhelmed – it’s like you’ve been stoned. Left for dead by lies – feeling frozen inside. You want to trust but you don’t know how. This is probably your season right now. Hate and fear won’t disappear as long as you listen and hold them dear. They take you captive and mock your cries. They know The solution lives deep inside. Father. Son. Spirit. The three and one abide. In me and you. We are His bride.

Sometimes Christians blame everything on the devil yet is that really the truth? Maybe deep inside you just don’t believe in you. Maybe that’s why it’s taken so long to get out of the emotional cycle that traps you in shut down. Is this why it’s taking so long to recognize yourself in the mirror? Listen. Reconsider the future. Reconsider the past. Look yourself in the mirror and call yourself a friend at last. Tell yourself you can do it. Tell yourself not to look back. Tell yourself not to turn around or give in to the voices of lack. Take a step toward trusting yourself. Take a step toward believing again. Take a step toward forgiving yourself. Step away from your thoughts of the sin. God does not think about it anymore. Maybe you shouldn’t either? Move forward friend. One step at a time. Maybe you need an action plan? Just plan out the next three steps. Even if those steps only take you to the next day… you have still stepped farther than yesterday. Until soon-love-d

Permission to live

3[1]

It’s like this. People are not always going to be there for you. They may trick and deceive you. They may even want you dead. BUT. BUT. You get to make your own choice. You have permission to live. Nobody controls you unless you let them. Nobody berates you unless you allow it. If you are filled with low self-esteem, self-hatred, self-harm and disrespect for you then you will attract others who want to push you down, cause you to hate you more and cause you to turn on yourself. BUT. BUT. If you think so little of you that you allow that to happen to you then YOU ARE THE ONE WHO NEEDS HEALING. Do you hear me? No. What they are doing is wrong…but equally wrong is what you are already doing to you. You can change. You have permission to live. You have permission to love yourself. Go #live life and learn how to #love you.

It’s Easy..

Love-d

There was a time…

IF you can relate – type I GET IT! There was a time many years ago when I would not sleep for #fear I would wake up dead.

There was a time many years ago when I blamed #sickness on disease. There was a time many years ago when I refused relationships for fear they would die and leave me alone.

There was a time many years ago when I agreed with doctors who said I would not live past 30.

There was a time many years ago when I agreed I would die like my mom.

There was a time many years ago when I felt you would not love me if you really got to ‘see’ me.

There was a time when I thought I would disappear into depression.

There was a time when I gave up and wanted to die.

There was a time…

There was a time…

There was a time…

But God.

I said, “But God.”

Yes, it sometimes required a #fight.

Yes, it sometimes required my will overriding overwhelming #emotions filled with #darkness and #despair.

Yes, it required me contending for life I could not yet see.

But God.

I said, “But God.”

So, my #friend if you have read until the end, I want you to know that overcoming that which wants to overcome you is worth it.

Knowing That One Who overcame the world and lives inside of you and lives inside of me is worth it.

And I’d do it again.

You – don’t you give up and don’t you turn back and don’t you give in to those #death filled thoughts and ideas. Choose life because Life chose you and you were and are worth choosing. But #God. I GET IT!! Share so that someone struggling about ‘there was a time’ will choose life. #REPOST Love-d
