Lay Aside The Weights.

Some weights that you are carrying are not of your own making. They were picked up because of your desire to show compassion and do good. Unfortunately, the beneficiaries of your kindness have moved on to higher grounds. And yes, they are oblivious to the fact that they have left you with scars and wounds that only your Creator can heal. The end result is they have tripped you up and hindered you from running your life race. 
Jesus is the only one I know who successfully ran His race with the weight of the world upon His shoulders and rose up victoriously! His word of advice for today is “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us. We do this by keeping our eyes on Jesus, the champion who initiates and perfects our faith. Because of the joy awaiting him, he endured the cross, disregarding its shame. Now he is seated in the place of honor beside God’s throne. Think of all the hostility he endured from sinful people; then you won’t become weary and give up. After all, you have not yet given your lives in your struggle against sin. Hebrews 12:1-4 NLT

Jesus is not insensitive to your pain. He is your burden bearer. However, He is saying loud and clear that it is time to lay aside the weights and move forward.

Moving forward means:

*Forgiving yourself for been deceived.
*Forgiving those who have wounded you.

*Asking God to restore your soul and put you back on his original path and timetable.

It also means:

*Watching your associations.

*Detoxing your mindset & thoughts patterns.

*Watching over your conversations and making positive confessions. 

*Getting a heavenly perspective of your circumstances.

*But above all, it means making a decision to stop bleeding over the bygone years.

*It is time to tell your betrayers, “You Tried To Sting Me, but I didn’t feel that!
