    Now when the Pharisee who had invited him saw it, he said to himself, "This man, if he were a prophet, would have perceived who and what kind of woman this is who touches him, that she is a sinner." Jesus answered him, "Simon, I have something to tell you." He said, "Teacher, say on." "A certain len...

Lay It Down

  • Brothers, I don't regard myself as yet having taken hold, but one thing I do: forgetting the things which are behind, and stretching forward to the things which are before, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. Philippians 3:13-14 WEB.

    I was in a very dark place in my life. The doctor had placed me on anti-depressants, yet I remained a recluse with suicidal thoughts. Once I had carried the precious anointing of the Holy Spirit. Now I only seemed to carry misery and felt that He could not be found. It was certainly me that withdrew from Him, and now I felt alone in the gloom. How did I get here? It is a long story that is not that relevant, but how it changed is.

    There seemed to be a very small light in that darkness, a small ray of hope. The Lord started speaking to me very gently, like someone trying to ease up to an injured animal. Slowly, little by little, He led me out of the darkness. I found that He still had a plan for my life, but I had to follow Him. It took action. I had to make some serious changes in my life that others intensely disliked. Albert Einstein said it best with: "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, and expecting different results." Sometimes it takes a change to break the cycle.

    Every journey begins with a first step. You don't have to let your past determine your future, for you can make a choice, and you can start today. You can't steer a car that is sitting still; it just gets older. To change its course, it has to be moving. Paul forgot the past behind him and pressed on towards the goal. So don't give up, for there is still hope. The end of a thing can be better than the beginning.

    Don't become trapped in your past or let other people control your future. You are older and wiser today. This is your life, a shiny new day, a fresh start. You are forgiven, and God still has plans for you. So press on for the prize, and don't let the enemy hold you back. There is still hope, for what you see does not have to be. God will always call you into the brightest version of your life, and every other path is inferior to His. Let go of the past, cut it loose, and lay it down. Hold tight to the lifeline that He gives you.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I come to You today, and I thank You for being there for me. Please draw me out of my shell Lord, draw me to You. Give me a clear vision of my next step. Inspire me to make the right decisions in my life and lead me today. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray. Amen!

    Note: "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths." (Prov. 3:5-6) ~ If you are in need of prayer, we and the prayer team are ready to lift you up at our private prayer page: RHM Prayer Network

Thank you Pastor Dion for sharing this message. I needed to hear it today... Father God, My life from day one has been controled by others and still to this day is. Please give me the wisdom to know how to break free and the courage to walk in it. I believe you have a greater plan and purpose for my life. Please don't forget me. I will keep my eyes steadfast on you. Thank you, in Jesus' name... Amen.

I was looking through an email account that I barely use.  As I was looking through the emails,  I was not looking for devotionals. This email opened by itself!!! I didn't click on it.  

Something told me to read it.  This story is so very similar to what I'm going through.  I've been asking God to show me that He is still with me.  

This devotional is PROOF that He is!! Thank you so much for writing this today.  My heart has real hope now.
