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

Forgiving is Afoot

Fearless Friday

Forgiving is a choice and rarely a feel good feeling especially when betrayal or dishonor was afoot. All I can say is that Jesus offered a new and better way. If He forgives from the cross – surely we are empowered to forgive after resurrection. Holy Spirit lead us into truth – we choose to follow you into resurrection with others and with ourselves.be fearless and love others and yourself by forgiving. While you forgive say with me- I choose to  be patient and kind with me too. Love-d
