A New Season
Updated: Dec 13, 2020
I am inspired. It's a new season and I'm excited about it. You know what, whenever it's winter, it gets dark. It's gloomy. It's cold. You kind of feel like sometimes you want to just bundle up and stay indoors (more-so now during COVID). I sometimes think about the way we feel on the inside, we sometimes bottle that up, cover it up, and pretend like it's not there. As a new season emerges, I think about how many ways that we can release, all of that covered up bottled up feelings we've had inside.
You can live a life of freedom and joy if you chose one thing
You know, I was recently doing a study with my group on unforgiveness. We were talking about how, when you have unforgiveness in your heart, how it affects so many things in your life. So when you have unforgiveness, it sometimes looks like bitterness, impatience, selfishness, and irritation. You've allowed yourself to harbor these seeds. I'm not saying that if you have these emotions it directly equates to unforgiveness. But for many people, these issues come from the bitter root of unforgiveness.
You can live a life of freedom and joy if you chose one thing….forgive somebody that has hurt you. Forgiveness is huge. You could just do it easily, decide to release that person or persons who hurt you. Let them go.
Who have you not forgiven? Who have you been holding on to that? Who do you feel owes you something? Think about unforgiveness.
Be blessed and be a blessing.
