Running in Place
Today, I want to talk to you guys about forgiveness. I struggled in this area pretty much my entire life. I was quick to cut people off and throw in the towel. I’m in a season of healing and training. During this season I am vulnerable and transparent with God. For a while, my relationship with God felt as if I was running in place. I was doing everything I thought I should be doing, but still, I felt stuck. God is not concerned with behavior modification he died on the cross for LIFE TRANSFORMATION.
Here Is a dream I had:
I envisioned myself running with chains on my back. On the receiving end of those chains were my father, friends, and fears. I couldn’t run. No matter how hard I tried I was still stuck. I was running in place and not going anywhere. I was carrying the weight of un unforgiveness in my heart. All the while I thought I had forgiving these people but the condition of my heart proved otherwise.
After that dream:
The Lord told me to pick up the phone and tell them that I forgive them. There is power in telling people and expressing to them forgiveness. This was the absolute hardest thing for me to do. The instructions of the lord are more valuable than the opinions of humans, so I obeyed.
On the other side of obedience is something beautiful. I am now living it. I have taken off running on the straight and narrow path that is set for me to endure.
The Lord has been pressing on my forgive people for a while now, and I am thankful that I listen to leading of the Holy Spirit.
I love God, I love myself, and now I can eagerly extend this love to others.
