Christian Sister, It’s Time to Break Free.

Do you ever feel heavy?

Not like a number-on-the-scale kind of heavy but rather a just-need-some-room-to-breathe kind of heavy.

Like you’re-trying-to-hoist-up-the-weight-of-the-world kind of heavy.

And before you know it, you’re dropping balls. You’re delegating the work you’ve loved. You’re skipping meals but scarfing down a whole pack of Oreos.

That kind of heavy.

If so, I get it.

I’m there.

I’m tired.

My feelings are hurt.

My expectations aren’t met.

And I could totally waste the day replaying all those condescending conversations I’ve had with myself on why I can’t juggle all of this and that. Why I got left out of this and that. Why I can’t even handle all the feelings that I associate with this and that.

And the water gets deeper.

And the clouds turn grey.

And the weight of the world drags me down.

And I’ve got a choice to make –

Stay afloat or go under? 

Break free or tighten the chains?

Remember the truth I know or believe all the lies?

I choose truth.

And I come up for air.

And I fill my lungs with life again. A life that’s remembering God’s faithfulness. And His delight. And my worth.

And suddenly, the scales come down.

And I put one foot in front of the other, and I can move. Forward.

Silence the lies, sweet sister. Spend some time with Jesus. Reach out for help.

I can say it with confidence. There is light on the other side.

“Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.” 2 Corinthians 3:17
