My intentions for this blog is to help us,(myself included in that number), to break free. Breaking free to me is leaving my past behind completely, getting out of my comfort zone to walk into my dreams and goals, and ultimately tearing down the walls that is holding me back from living that incredible life God designed for me. If that sounds like you in any way, then this blog is for you. This is for people that are ready to BREAK LOOSE. Before the journey begins, there is always that choice of “not beginning”. The choice to not start the journey and stay comfortable in the place that you are. Everything we need to break loose from is not exactly “what we want to break loose from”. The truth is that some struggles have morphed from torture to a comfort zone. You get use to feeling rejected, fighting for real love and attention, and always on the run from yourself.
I want to be completely honest in writing this blog because no journey is filled with perfect steps from beginning to end. It takes endurance and real transparency to grasp the faith that you can walk out of your struggles and strongholds. I was always the person talking about leaving the past behind when I find myself always going back to it. Lately, I have been feeling the need to break out. Of course, I felt this before but somehow quiet that voice for it to come back louder inside of me. We can easily get excited about starting something new or engaging in a 5-Day or 30-Day challenge but do we really count up the costs? Are we really ready to start saying “NO” to our secret sins? Do we have the courage to cut off bad connections? Is it worth finally coming face to face with our issues? For some of us, we have been putting this off for a while. Although we procrastinated, it does not deny the fact that our freedom is actually the key to someone else’s. (Think on that.) The more time we waste, the deeper someone else get in their mess. Breaking free is not about one person but the lives that will be effected by that one person’s freedom.
So should I start the journey…..or stay in the dark?
Should I break off the relationship/affair……or continue feeling the void of being wanted with dysfunction and lies
Should I dedicate the time to my craft and step out on it in faith……or continue to hide behind my timidity and bury my gifts
Should I confess the truth about my personal struggles so I can heal…..or continue to wear the mask of “fake perfection” and cry myself to sleep every night
Should I allow myself to forgive and move from the past offenses…..or continue to be swallowed up in bitterness and hold myself back from God-designed relationships/friendships
We always hold the power to choose and nothing or no one can take that from us unless we give it away. It is very easy to place the blame on others and suddenly catch amnesia when it comes to the questions of why your life is going in a certain direction. The day we take responsibility, is the day things are going to change. That doesn’t mean that things will change overnight but it’s about taking that first step. So I am here for you and feel free to comment. You are not alone ;).
