Release your Cling
I know I promised a video *covers face* last week but I am sure you will forgive me if I narrated all the happenings between then and now. No time for that though. You can send me a message or call for the gist.
So recently I saw a picture post with the words ‘Don’t Cling to a Mistake Just Because You Spent a lot of Time Making it’. Now pause and read the words again. I am sure one or several incidents come to mind where you did just that and possibly still doing it.
The most recent thought attached to those words happened to me a few months ago. I made several choices which turned out to be mistakes based on a person and feelings associated. At a certain point, I knew it was wrong and I had to get out. It was emotionally draining and psychologically painful but because the mistake was done, I wanted to ‘manage’ it. The process of management was excruciating as I was constantly reminded that this was a mistake. It was always in my face, heart and head.
Grace found me and pulled, pushed and dragged me out though I struggled still wanting to cling to the mistake. Imagine knowing you will be burnt and still walking into fire. That was my case. I held on for as long as I could until grace snatched me, shut the door and destroyed the key. Yes, it was that deep. And no grace is not a person *Laughing*. God’s grace.
Now the error was that I was willing to remain in it, even though I knew it was wrong and that is exactly what a lot of people do. Think about how many people are still stuck to a bad career choice or a relationship mistake they made several years ago. Search your heart. I am quite sure you will affirm what I am talking about. If you have made that choice and got out hurt but happy now, I congratulate you. You are definitely strong. However, if you are still clinging to a mistake, this next paragraph is for you.
NEWSFLASH!!!! It is time to get out of that mistake. It will hurt I know but really it hurts already. A hurt towards freedom is better than hurting with no way out.
Now I tell you one thing, In the end, you will be happy you did. Liberation will be felt and things you thought you could never do will become a walk in the park.
Have a marvelous week ahead, your testimony awaits you.
