Is Something Missing In Your Life That Is Keeping You From Your Dreams?
Today, I wanted to share a message from our church pastor with you.
At my church (Rocky Mountain Christian Church), they are doing a series called, "How Not to Waste Your Life", and on Sunday, one of our pastors was talking about letting things go.
It's a really important topic because holding on to certain things can be detrimental to our wellbeing.
He was saying that whatever we are holding onto that is keeping us from reaching our full potential in a relationship with Christ, just let it go. If it is an addiction or a grudge or something that happened to us years ago, it's time to let it go so we can become the people God meant for us to be. To trust Him, to put our faith in Him, and to let Him guide us in this life.
Holding onto things that are hindering you or keeping you from reaching your full potential with God affects more than just your relationship; it affects your whole life.
It affects your whole life because I believe that a strong relationship with God means that we are doing the things He called us to do.
How do you know when there is something missing in your life? When you feel something missing in your life, that you aren't quite fulfilled, it means that you aren't pursuing a relationship with God or, if you are pursuing a relationship with God, you aren't doing what you are called to do.
With strong faith and a relationship with God, we don't need addictions, we're not holding grudges, and we're letting go of things that do not serve us.
Before I go on, don't think for one second that I have everything figured out or that I am a perfect example of a Christian who has it together. I'm not perfect. I'm human and, like every other human in this world, I make mistakes and I hold judgments and I dwell on things that happened in the past. But I'm working at it. I'm learning to be me, the "me" God meant for me to be, a little each day.
But if there is something that is holding you back from your dreams, it's time to let the hindrance go.
The second main point our pastor made was to take control. Pursue a relationship with God and pursue your dreams. God gave you those dreams. I don't believe they are there to tease you, but you need to take action. They won't happen by themselves. You need to take initiative.
If there is something that you want to do, something you feel compelled to do, you need to take action. We weren't meant to play small, we weren't meant to let life pass us by.
We were meant to take action, to have an impact on other people's lives, and to glorify God through our works.
Get up, take action. It's not going to be easy, you'll make mistakes, you'll be sick to your stomach from your nerves, but it will be worth it! You owe it to yourself and to everyone who can benefit from what you can share. You can do it! And only you can do what you are called to do.
