Have you ever felt like just like these rocks? Just stuck where you were in life? Trapped, with no idea how to move forward or get out of the situation you were in?
I think we have all been there at some stage or another, and it is an awful feeling. Well I have some great news! God, through His Son Jesus, has set you free! Isaiah 61:1
You no longer have to stay bound in the memories, hurts and pain of the past, you can walk in the freedom of Christ. There is a little bit of work to do though to get to this freedom, you need to ‘retrain your brain’. By this I mean think about what you are thinking about. Do you spend most of your thought life dwelling on what caused you that pain? Now we all do this, we ruminate, we relive, we chew on our problems BUT, sweet ladies, we do not have to do this. When we continue to think about our problems and our hurts we are continuing to give that situation or person power over us. Don’t you think that is a little bit silly!
What we give our thoughts to is so very important! So if we want to stop feeling guilty, if we want to stop feeling angry, if we want to stop being sad than we MUST stop thinking the thoughts that make us feel this way! We actually have the ability to stop our thoughts, but too often we just let our minds wander down the track of despair and pain. Proverbs 23:7 tells us that as we think in our heart then that is what we will be! Praise God He loves us enough to instruct us in how to have a better life! You absolutely can change the way you think! I have had to do this myself! In the past I have constantly dwelled on what was wrong with my life, who had hurt me, I relived the hurt, the pain, the sadness and guess what! I was continually sad and was never able to move forward with my life. However God, in His immeasurable graciousness, started to really impress on me what He wanted me to do with my life and what He wanted me to do to get there. If you want to change your life and become unstuck from where you have been camped then ask God to show you how, He will answer your prayer because He wants you to fulfil the purpose for which He created you! He loves you with an everlasting love and He has already provided the resources to help you get there.
