The Bible says owe no man anything but to love one another (Romas 13:8).
Who do you owe?
I’m not talking about money.
Who has you bound and shackled to this idea that they’ve done something that requires you to do something?
Whose expectations dictate the choices you make?
Whose support has turned into a prison?
All that you should owe OWE anyone, aside from an actual loan of money you agreed to pay back, is love.
Conditions and control are not love.
God doesn’t even demand a return on the investment He made by coming to earth and dying on the cross.
He gives us a choice. When we come into the knowledge of this and relationship with Him, He is the only one we owe our lives to.
I would advise that you look at you and those around you. I would advise that you figure out who you are and what God purposed you for.
Then, like Jesus did at the synagogue and then the house of Jairus, put everyone and everything out that won’t help you get there. I said help. Not guilt. Not make demands.
This won’t be easy. You’ll have to confront hurt and pain. You’ll have to walk away from people you love.
Jesus promised to provide a Comforter and be with us. That’s the Holy Ghost. See Salvation.
But, let me ask you something. How easy is it now? How much peace do you have? How rested are you? How happy are you? How full or empty are you? How much joy do you have?
Surely there are reasons why they are who they are and have treated you how they have. But you are responsible for you. Only you, at the end of the day, are the one who will take care of you.
We need people. You have a tribe. One that is equipped to help and assist you. But. Until you release the one holding you back you will never access the one intended to get you to purpose.
I am praying for you. I’m dealing with this for the umpteenth time. I told you it isn’t easy. But. The closer I get to purpose the easier it’s becoming.
Go be great. Someone is counting on it.
