Un-forgiveness Cuts a path of destruction across your entire life

Un-Forgiveness cuts a path of destruction across your entire life.

Can you see beyond the scars? A broken heart can survive but shadows fill the empty heart.
A touch of Grace can turn shadows into light.

Un-forgiveness is a tethered rope, waiting to snap and break you away from your true purpose and destination in life. There is a peace that God & Jesus has destined for all of us. When you avoid forgiveness it can create a path of destruction across your entire life. It will be written into every relationship you have in this life. It will be seen in the workplace and amidst the closeness and freedom experiences with those you love and care about. Not only will it affect your relationships but it will affect your health. Are you responding to the stress? Physical responses creating heart & body stress responses resulting an increase in heart attacks! Are you letting the hurt destroy your ability to tend and care for your health? Are you eating poorly, lacking the desires to tend to your personal fitness?

Are you letting time heal? Time healing is about pushing away the forgiveness, you avoid it and hope that time takes away the pain. Time does NOT heal a broken heart, Time does not forgive others; you do.

Can't forget till you forgive. That's just a fact. Stop waiting for the person that did you wrong to come to you to say Sorry! I can almost guarantee you that is never going to happen. Even if by chance they did come to you, would you be ready to receive it? Would you be ready to forgive and let go?

Sin masquerades and an un forgiving heart and most importantly hinders your love for God & Jesus along with everyone else in your life. Have compassion, pray for the person that has hurt you. Lift  them up to the Lord for healing. Ask God to take care of the convictions and let your responsibility for crucification of the other person wither.

Pain is Inevitable, Misery is Optional

Pain is Inevitable, Misery is Optional

Transformation comes from pain. It's not a time be upset about the suffering, yet a time to take root in who you are, what is meant for your life!

Life is about transforming in pain & hardship. It's NOT a time of compensation. We ache and hurt and we fill the need or void with unhealthy thoughts and behaviors.  Compensation happens when we are eager to feel "good" again. No one wants to pain!  Pain is covered, filled or compensated with food, drugs, alcohol, casual or meaningless sex, inappropriate relationships (slip up of personal boundary lines with people). 

I want to ask you, Are you compensating or transforming in your Pain? 

Misery is optional, turn your thoughts from pessimism to optimisms. Look and search hard for your silver linings, for your lessons. Many think suffering is optional and that is the furthest from the truth, because everyone will suffer! Jesus even suffered on the cross and God suffers when you stray from his light and love for you! Suffering is inevitable, but do NOT toil in it. Feel it, experience it and then TRANSFORM in it!

How can you transform in Pain?

  1. Recognize it - stop hiding the pain, it's real, it's raw and sometimes placed by there by God to grow you! Sometimes it's placed there by Satan to destroy you! Pray for your discernment.
  2. Feel it- there is something powerful about suffering, not only does it make you value when life feels' normal and good'
  3. Find your lessons- There is a way to grow inside the pain. Growth strength & courage. Find your life lesson. Identify your pitfalls in dealing with pain, do you rise up or do you allow yourself to get swallowed up?
  4. Keep your Focus- Keep your eye on strength, courage and endurance. When you stay optimistic and keep heart & soul on what God has in store for you, and full TRUST the Living God then who can be against you? With True Faith, Deep Hope you will feel that God and Will redeem you! You Must meet God Half way; don't make him do all the work for you! It's time for YOU to grow and change, Not God!
