What's that? There's a barrier in front of you? Oh Yay. Why not see it as an opportunity to come up with a creative solution? Can you open it? Can you walk through it? Walk over it?
What if the next opposition you faced was seen as an opportunity to grow? What if it was not going to stop you, but make you stronger?
You can overcome everything you face, because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

Is there some stuff in your life that you have just been trying to hold it together? Does it feel like you are constantly finding another leak, another broken wire, something else that has gone wrong?
You know when we get a wound there may be a time to put a band aid on it, to allow it time to be protected to prevent further damage, but then there comes a point when if we keep the band aid on it, it stops getting better and starts getting worse. I was thinking about this same thing when I saw this fence. Some of you may wonder at some of my stories an analogies and how I come up with such things, but because I have been around farms much of my life this is natural to me. The fence pictured here may have been okay to have one repair, but now it has so many repairs that is really needs to be renewed.
So I wonder if it is time to take the band aid of the issue, allow the wound to get some fresh air and let it heal, so it doesn't become infected and fester.

Are you living in the light or in the darkness? When we live in the light it means that all that stuff that was hidden gets exposed. Yes sometimes that is unpleasant and painful, but if stuff stays in the dark it grows bigger, gets mouldy and eventually causes more damage.
Are there areas of your life that need to be brought into the light? I'm not talking about telling the world about your problems, sure some of you may be called to share your testimony, but a wound is not a testimony until it is no longer a wound, but instead it is now a scar. So I am talking about bringing the hurts and stuff into the light so it can be dealt with and can hopefully over time go from being a wound to a healed scar and thus a testimony.
This may be something that is just between you and God or it may be something that you share with a close friend or family member or it may even be something that you choose to explore with a counsellor or other health professional. Admitting that you have stuff that needs to be dealt with is not a sign of weakness, but of courage.
Be courageous and face the though stuff, in a safe and loving environment, allowing the light to shine on it and healing to come to the wound over time, so that you can continue to grow.

Some say how long is a piece of sting; I say how long is a stick? Well no one knows, because it could be any length. So then it would seem to me to be a pretty silly thing to assume that one could decide that they are "not meeting the standards" expected by comparing themselves to someone else.
The reason I say this is because Jonny's life is not meant to be the same as yours and your life is not meant to be the same as Mary's. You are unique by design and so no matter of comparing and calculating and trying to become like someone else will ever get you to where you are meant to be. There is only one who is perfect and worth following; everyone else has their own walk and they are made for something special, just like you are.
If we spend our life trying to be like someone else we will never be the best version of us that we can be. You know, you might be the answer to someone else problem and if you don't learn to be you and grow into the best version of you, then you might be short changing the world of the gift of you and what you bring to it, that no one else could bring.
The answer to a world problem may be in you and no one else. The answer to your neighbour may be in you and no one else. Why not take the time to discover who you were made to be and stay connected to the one who made you, because he is the source of all life and with him you can become all you were made to be.
Be you and keep growing. Don't be someone else. Let them be them and you be you, because the world needs you both. Doesn't mean you can't learn from someone else, but don't become a carbon copy of them.

Are you someone who, when you have been somewhere, people can see? Do you leave a mark where you go? Is that mark for good? Is it a mark that will leave a person built up or is it a mark that will leave them feeling torn down?
Think about these things. What makes you unique? What is the mark you leave? and when your time has come and gone, what is the legacy you want to be remembered by?
Who do you want to impact, what do you want to touch and how do you want to love?
Will you be someone who leaves your world a better place than when you came into it, because you decided to leave your unique mark.
Be a legacy creator for the glory of the creator.

Could it be that the thing in front of you is not made to stop you? What is stopping you from climbing over that thing? That hurt. What is stopping you from letting it go? That resentment. What is stopping you from making a choice to forgive? Not because what was done to you or what happened was necessarily right or acceptable, but because by holding on to it is only keeping you from moving forward.
Yes it may be painful and it may even be a long process, but would you rather stay stuck where you are with the bitterness and anger and hurt eating away at you and the reality of achieving your dreams seeming to be far in the distance or would you rather make a choice that you are not going to stay there. That you won't allow what happened to you to rob another moment of your life.
Go climb that mountain, get over that fence, because the view from the top of the mountain is worth it after the climb. You can achieve your dreams.

Sometimes we don't know where the edge is and what lives on the other side of it. I wonder if maybe you have calculated, planned and tried to work it all out enough and whether it is time to just take a big step off the edge and embrace the adventure.
What if your next step was the one that unlock your tomorrow? What if your choice to do something different than you have always done meant that the results would be different than you have seen in the past?
We can either sit and watch everyone else achieve their dreams or take a step and achieve ours. What's stopping you?

Sometimes we are so fixated on the thing right in front of us, which may look insurmountable, but if we were to lift our eyes up a bit and stop looking at the mess and worrying about we are going to get through it and stressing about what might even be on the other side and fearing the unknown, then maybe, just maybe we would see that there is another way to do life.
Have you ever wondered why sometimes it seems like some people can face challenges and come out smiling, while others it appears to destroy them?
What if our mindset around challenges was different?
What if the next challenge you came up against, was not seen as something designed to stop you, but something that is designed to make you? What if this thing that requires some persistence, was designed to teach you patience. What if you saw the next mountain you have to climb as an adventure that will grow and develop you?
What if we lived in real peace, where the truth set us free and we knew that no matter where we went the one who created us was right by our side.

Is there something in your life that has the appearance of being dead, while in fact it has gone through a season and is about to spread seeds for the new season. The old season is about to prepare the way for the new one and bring an even greater harvest than the last season.
So don't discount the things that seemed to have died, because they might be the very thing that sets you up and prepares you for the next open door.
Sometimes we can risk not taking the next step for fear of what may be on the other side of the door. We may even fear what others may think, but I want to challenge you. If you knew that it didn't really matter what other people thought and you knew that their words wouldn't stop you, then would you live differently than you are today?
Well then here is the secret, it doesn't matter if other people say you will fail, because that is just a first attempt in trying and it doesn't matter if other people say you won't amount to anything; well who are they to decide what you will amount to? And besides you are special because of who you are not what you do. So don't let anyone tell you, that you are nothing, because nothing is not a person.
Listen to the truth and let that be the only voice that has a say in your life, in what you think, believe and do.

Does something in your life have the appearance of being good, while in fact it is like a weed. It is taking all the goodness from the soil of your life and in fact not beneficial at all.
What do you need to do to get rid of this weed? Keeping in mind that it might have big roots, which have developed over a long time of allowing things to take root in your heart and mind, like hurt, resentment, unforgiveness, pain, false guilt.
It might take some time for you to indentify the root issue, and this may need the help of a qualified counsellor or other mental health professional, but it will be worth it in the end. Yes it may be painful digging the root out and bringing to the surface things that have been buried for a long time, but it stays there it will only get stronger and likely impact your life in a big way, when eventually it seems bigger than all the healthy things in your life.
So I wonder if now is the time to take a step to get rid of the weeds and start planting and tending a crop of good plants in your life?
