Cut the cables

The energy you spend defending your limitations keeps those limitations solidly in place. But what if you put that energy into something else?

The effort you spend convincing others of your excuses, makes those excuses more real and more burdensome to you.
Imagine, instead, simply letting them go.

Yes, of course, life is entirely unfair. Yes, of course, the circumstances and events of your life have you thoroughly tied down like sturdy, unyielding steel cables.

There is a way to cut those cables. For it is you who has put most of them in place.

Focus your mind, your energy, your spirit, your feelings and emotions on the most joyful and fulfilling scenario you can imagine. Suddenly and profoundly, your reality begins to change.

Put the energy of your spirit into giving color and texture and substance and palpable sensation to your most treasured dreams. That will surely make you free.

Quick Thought:

“Now the just shall live by faith; but if anyone draws back, my soul has no pleasure in him. But we are not of those who draw back to perdition, but of those who believe to the saving of the soul.” Hebrews 10:38-39 (NKJ)

Luke 21:34-38

“Be on guard, that your hearts may not be weighted down with dissipation and drunkenness and the worries of life, and that day come on you suddenly like a trap; for it will come upon all those who dwell on the face of all the earth.”

“But keep on the alert at all times, praying in order that you may have strength to escape all these things that are about to take place, and to stand before the Son of Man.”

“Now during the day He (Jesus) was teaching in the temple, but at evening He would go out and spend the night on the mount that is called Olivet.”

“And all the people would get up early in the morning to come to Him in the temple to listen to Him.” Luke 21:34-38 (NAS)

John 20:18-25

“Mary Magdalene came, announcing to the disciples, “I have seen the Lord,” and that He (Jesus) had said these things to her.”

“When therefore it was evening, on that day, the first day of the week, and when the doors were shut where the disciples were, for fear of the Jews, Jesus came and stood in their midst, and said to them, “Peace be with you.” And when He had said this, He showed them both His hands and His side. The disciples therefore rejoiced when they saw the Lord.”

“Jesus therefore said to them again, “Peace be with you; as the Father has sent Me, I also send you.” And when He had said this, He breathed on them, and said to them, “Receive the Holy Spirit. If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they have been retained.”

“But Thomas, one of the twelve, called Didymus, was not with them when Jesus came. The other disciples therefore were saying to him, “We have seen the Lord!” But he said to them, “Unless I shall see in His hands the imprint of the nails, and put my finger into the place of the nails, and put my hand into His side, I will not believe.” John 20:18-25 (NAS)
