What are you holding on to?

Well, here it is early March...already! The Christmas Season, New Years, And February flew by with a blur  of family activity, cooking, wrapping and unwrapping gifts, teaching a new class and of course...eating!

So here's the thing...in all the busyness of  our days what did God speak to you - personally?  Were you listening?  Did he have to move a mountain to get your attention, show up unexpectedly in your day or just whisper in you ear?  What did He say to you that brought you back to reality, back to focus...on Him?

If you didn't hear anything I'll share with you what I heard him say to me and challenge you to do it?

In Luke 2:6 and 7  the Bible says "So it was, while they were there, the days were completed for her to be delivered and she brought forth her first born Son..."

It was Mary's time "to be delivered".  She had to be delivered!  The child inside her had grown for months and now it was time for her to "bring forth" what God had been working in her life...her first born son.

So here's what God said to me and I pass on to you ~  It is time for you to be delivered from ______  in order to bring forth what I'm working in your life.  The time has come!  Trust me.

Here's  the thing...the challenge.  What is it in your life that is hindering God from taking you, placing you in the middle of his will for your life?  What is it that is keeping you from stepping right into the thing you've hoped for, longed for, for many years. Is it regret, fear, unforgiveness, insecurity?  What is it that you are holding on to?  That thing you  can't let go of?

Whatever it is this I know...God is waiting on you to let go of it and trust Him before He will move you to the next step.  He has big plans for you.  But that thing you are holding on to....it can't go with you.  It has no place where God is taking you.  You must leave it behind.  God will leave you right where you are until you take care of the issue.

I think there are so many people just on the verge of having a dream fulfilled and being in the place where God can use them mightily, but they refuse to deal with an issue.  And they stay where they are year after year and wonder why God doesn't use them.

Is there something in your life that came to mind while reading this?  Or maybe you are fully aware of an issue that you need to deal with.  Either way, sister listen to me ...NOTHING is worth hanging on to that keeps you from walking on the path He has for you.  NOTHING is worth keeping that prevents God from bringing forth what He is working your life.

So what is it?  Are you willing to deal with the issue?  Are you willing to let go of it, take a step of faith and trust Him?  A wonderful journey awaits you but you must "be delivered" from ______ for the journey to begin.

God's waiting on you...
