I’m sure the title of this post must have got you thinkin’ what is making Sherline Go Crazy huh!!!!? lol 😀 … well, let me calm you down right there and let you know that I have all my faculties together so not to worry. I’m just posting this upbeat song by GI (God’s Image) called Go Crazy. It’s not a new song but I just love it and wanted to share it here with you today. When I think of what the Lord has done for me for the past couple of years with the sickness I endured and the long journey to recovery, I think I can say that I just go crazy with Joy for what the Lord has done in my life. I feel positive about what lies ahead for me in my future. The Lord never leaves us forsaken.
I’ve come to terms with those that walk out of my life and am willing to embrace those that want to be a part of my life. I have chosen not to cling onto people that won’t cling onto me and just let them go. There’s no need for dead weight that won’t take you anywhere. It’s better to be freed of dead weight and align yourself with people that honestly make an effort to be in your life and want to have something to do with you. Life isn’t about pleasing people that are around you, it’s about doing what is pleasing before God and allowing God to show you who you really should be aligned with and connected to even when it hurts as He strikes off some peeps out of your life that add no spiritual, emotional, or intellectual value to your destiny.
I think many struggle to let go of “dead-end” relationships, but at the end of the day, we must acknowledge the fact that weeds choke the potential of a plant or tree to grow, so you must uproot the weedy people out of your lives if you want to grow and thrive in the long run. This also applies to those in ministry and also to your places of employment where you find no room to grow in your careers, or where you find that there are no opportunities for advancement because certain people are either blocking you from reaching your goals, or there is no room to advance in the place that you find yourself in.
Ask yourself, how long will you stick it out? Will you wait until you get totally frustrated? Or will you allow God to shift you and reposition you into a different role, company, occupation, ministry, etc? What will it take for you to move with the seasons of change that God has in your life that is intended for you to shift from where you are to where He wants you to go and be, hmmmmmm…..?
Are you willing to allow God to shift you from where you are to where He wants you to be? Ask yourself all these questions today. Don’t allow weedy people to short change your destiny. Don’t give people that much power over your life that you can’t breathe freely in the end. God didn’t sign you up to be caged with the wrong people that are thwarting your potential to succeed. You have to recognize when where you are simply isn’t good enough for you, and when God wants to take you out of that dead-end pit and into a better place that will help you thrive. The question is, do you trust God to direct your path? If you do… then move when God tells you to move, Amen!
The last song is I have here is also by GI (God’s Image) called Pray and Don’t Worry. I think that this song is awesome and it really is uplifting to any weary soul that needs a song to encourage them especially when you’re feeling at your lowest. Don’t put your trust in the wrong places. Don’t put your trust in people that are susceptible to disappointing you and are not perfect to begin with. Put your total trust in God who is able to do exceedingly, abundantly, above all you could ask or think of, Amen! Put your trust in the right place is my main message. Learn to pray to God and make your requests known to God so that He is able to answer to your need in His perfect timing, Amen! Thank God for every victory and remember all blessings you have in your life come from God.
Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God;
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.
Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
