Stunting Your Growth

Standard

Many people fail to realize they are in their own way. They know it all and they think they have it all together. If people would put as much or more emphasis on worrying about self, they would be much better off. Too many people put everyone else above self. They focus way too much on being what other people want them to be versus focusing on who they are or what they want to become.

Most people stunt their own growth because they refuse to acknowledge the fact they are responsible for who they choose to become. I don’t care what happened along the way or who did it; how we choose to become depends solely on each of us individually. There are many who will not grasp hold of this truth. They will continue in life the same way and most will die unchanged.

There are unlimited things available to us all if we apply ourselves. A lot of people won’t get off of their dusty stumps to do anything different. They have become fixated and content in their wrong ways of thinking, feeling, and acting until they’ve stunt their own growth. Most do it because they spend most of their lives blaming other people for who they’ve chosen to become.

Most times in life no one is shelling out anything for free. Whatever you want out of life you have to set goals and move towards those goals. Sometimes you will have support, but many times you won’t. If you don’t keep on moving towards your goals. It all depends on you. You shouldn’t live your life for anyone or allow anyone to try an live your life for you.

Stop stunting your own growth and stop allowing others to stunt your growth. Stop waiting for or looking for the approval of others. Many people mess up because they become too sidetracked when they don’t get support or approval of others. News flash; everyone you love won’t love you and everyone who says they support you, don’t and won’t! It’s as simple as that! Keep it moving!

No one can get from point A to B if they’re standing in the same spot. You must move! Life will throw you curved balls, but that’s just it; it’s a part of life! As I recently said “don’t make what is meant to be stepping stones; stumbling blocks.” Stepping stones you step on or jump over and keep going (moving towards your goals), but stumbling blocks can knock you down and stunt your growth, they keep you from progressing. What you choose is up to you!

Blaming Keeps You Stuck

Standard

When a person blame others for who they’ve become they hold back self. They don’t afford self the opportunity to change, because they become stuck and fixated. No one and I mean no one can become who they are meant to be if they are stuck in mental states of blaming other people for who they are.

As I’ve said and written many times before, I believe people and situations can contribute to who people become, however the ultimate decision is the individual’s. No one on earth is exempt from struggles, troubles, adversities, trials and tribulations, woes, sorrows, hardships, misfortunes, tragedy, or whatever you want to label them. We all will go through things and unfortunately sometimes they are things done to us by other people. Still; how we choose to hold on to things is determined by the individual NOT the other people.

We all have our own lives to live. If a person put all their time and energy to reliving and rehashing old things; they give power to it. Many think they are hurting the other person/people by being angry and acting out, truth is people who do this are hurting self the most. If a person live their life blaming other people they do not have the chance to change. These types of people spend years of their lives blaming other people instead of changing and making their lives better.

No matter what you go through it doesn’t have a grip on you, people choose to grip and hold on to those things; even though they are long gone and the benefit of holding on is none. Many people spend their entire lives angry over things that happened years and years ago. They can’t mature or grow, because they are stuck in unhealthy mindsets.

Regardless of what a person goes through if they don’t deal with whatever it is/was they will go a lifetime allowing it to affect them. No one has to live this way. Many people give power to those things and the pain and memories become so strong it consumes them. They become angry and bitter and it sickens them like a disease. They spend all of their time sulking and complaining. They are miserable and unhappy, yet they continue to blame without ever trying to get control of their lives. Many bring children into the world and raise them just like they are to be sad, depressed, angry, and bitter about life.

We all have the ability to change if it is what we choose. No one can take your power if you do not give it! People must take back their power from their pasts. Okay, you went through what you went through, but it’s over now. I’m not downplaying it, I’m not saying it wasn’t traumatic, I’m not saying it didn’t happen, I’m not saying any of it. I am saying the actual event is over, yet people allow their memories to keep them trapped in a time warp as if the event is happening in their present.

I can talk about it because I’ve been their, however I have never been one to blame. I could have, but I didn’t and I never have. I can tell you things I’ve gone through you wouldn’t believe, but yet here I am telling you that you don’t have to allow it to ruin your life. I could be angry, bitter, and all of it, but I choose otherwise. I can’t let anyone take my spirit from me, because they didn’t put my spirit in me. People allow what they’ve gone through to suck the life out of them, when they don’t have too!

You decide you want better, embrace better, and then do better! Accept whatever has happened, forgive people, and forgive yourself. When you forgive people it heals you. You can’t move towards change by holding on to what once was!

Fixated on what you Got, Instead of What got you

Standard

This very thing will land many into lake of brimstone and fire (HELL). People are too worried about what they have or what they can get. Their thoughts and passions are for what they can accomplish, acquire, or obtain. People are lost in their desires to gain all the possessions the world has to offer. Some will do it at any or all cost. Realization is you gain the world, but the price will be to lose your souls.

People are into how big their homes are, how much money in their accounts, or the cars they drive. If they don’t have their own, they will connect with people to get out of them what they can. They are willing to step on toes, feet, and even heads to get what they want. They will stab you in the back and then steal someone else’s knife and stab you with that one too!

They are liars, false prophets, hearers of the Word only, fake Saints, deceivers, wolves in sheep’s clothing, Jezebel spirits, and you name it! All they care about is the association of Jesus the Son and God the Father by name and name alone. They have forms of Godliness denying the power thereof. They have studied and therefore have learned to mimic the behaviors and actions of true Saints.

Most are working diligently towards material prosperity and NOT spiritual prosperity. They want to be big shots! They are vain and puffed up by people. They love to hear people chant their names. They speak in inaudible fake tongues, even God Himself can’t understand the foolishness from their lips. They pretend to live Holy, yet they are double-minded.

You know who you are, you know what you are, and you know to whom you truly belong. You may deceive some people, but you’re not deceiving them all and you’re certainly NOT deceiving Jesus the Son or God the Father! You will find yourselves on roller skates and a slippery road straight into the pit of hell. Don’t get caught living this way when the Master comes. He’s coming like a thief in the night!

The Bible says people will love the world more than they love God. It is definitely true! People are so focused on what they got and not on what got them! Some will kill, steal, or destroy others to get it (with no remorse or shame). They are possessed by their desires of this world. Anything having control over you possesses you! If you love it more than God; it is your god!

People need to understand with no doubt once you leave this world you can’t take NOTHING with you. Concerns should be of eternal life with the King. If not your eternal life will be with whom you chose; your master Satan! As I’ve said and written before, Satan can’t put a person in hell, people choose it freely.

The choice is always yours to make, but remember your choice will make the difference between life and death! Make the right one, before it’s too late!

There is no Fear in Jesus

Standard

I wanted to talk about this, because so many people claim to love Jesus and claim to follow Jesus. However, their walk isn’t aligning with their talk. Too many people are stuck in bad situations out of fear. Not only concerning relationships, people are very fearful because of what’s going in the world today. Loving and serving God doesn’t line up with being in fear.

Don’t fear, fear is the trick of the enemy. Fear open doors to other things not of God. Don’t get me wrong; things are scary, but it doesn’t mean you have to fear. Fear keeps a person in a bad state of mind. It keeps people fixated and stuck. People must stop professing Jesus the Son and God the Father, yet are consumed with fear. These types of people are allowing what is happening in the world to keep them in bondage. They are allowing people and things to keep them in bondage out of fear.

God wants us to be brave and strong. He wants us to believe He is who He say He is (The Great I AM). He wants us to know no matter what it looks like we are never alone. He’s with us always. He doesn’t want us to fall into fear, because it is the trick of the enemy. Remember the devil’s job is to lie, fool, deceit, into killing, stealing, and destroying.

People must let the devil know he’s a defeated foe. If a person doesn’t believe they have the power and authority to send the devil on his way, the devil will continue to mess with them. Stop allowing the devil to toy and play in your life. Kick him in his butt and send him on his way! Speak to him and let him know you don’t below to him, you have no parts of him, you are the property of God the Father and His Son Jesus. Let the devil know he can’t reside with you, he has to go, in the name of Jesus! He knows how to play on your weaknesses. This is why it’s very important people strive to grow spiritually, stay in the Word, get a daily prayer life, and get a daily relationship with our Father who art in Heaven.

Far too many profess it, but don’t live. If a person is doing this they are NOT serving Jesus and the Father. You can’t live any type of way you choose and think it’s okay with Jesus; it is not! Remember it always goes back to either you’re for Him or against Him. Think about it, which side or you on? If you’re not on God the Father and His Son Jesus then you’re a dead person walking. Faking won’t help you to make it. You have to be real in your quest to see the King!!!
