What is true?
Imagine you are in a room. There are no windows. You can’t see what is beyond the four walls. The only way out is through the door, but it’s locked. There are five different sets of locks, and it is impossible to get out. So you stay, even though you desperately want out.
One day you hear a whisper.
Try the doorknob.
When you place your hand on it and twist, the doorknob moves. It’s not locked. It never was. That revelation leads you to the next lock. You easily slip out the bar. It seemed secure. It seemed impossible, but it pulls out with no problem. So you try the third, the fourth, and the fifth lock. They all open without any trouble.If you believe a lie, it doesn't make it true. #livingfreetogether #theunburdenedheart Click To Tweet
You believed that you were stuck — because of the appearance of a locked door. When you overcame one misconception it allowed you to test the next, and the next until you were free.
You pull on the doorknob and the door swings open wide.
You walk out of the room, leaving it behind forever.
Truth sets us free
We don’t always know what truth is because we’ve believed the lie for so long. Today we are going to bust some lies wide open. My prayer is that one truth will lead to the next. That you’ll keep unlocking the doors, until you step into living a life solely based on truth.
Not your past.
Not what that person said.
Now what that person is doing.
Not what you tell yourself as you look in the mirror.Truth or a lie? A free gift to help you know the difference. #livingfreetogether http://wp.me/p4jbdw-47k Click To Tweet
I’m a visual person. There are times I write on my mirror or I place a note where I can see it often. It soaks into my heart every time I see it, every time I whisper those words out loud. Eventually they are ingrained in who I am.
Download today’s bookmark.. Place it in your Bible or journal. Make a second copy and give it to a friend, who may be struggling with a lie versus truth. My prayer is that we’ll all bust open those lies that the enemy uses, as we blow them away with truth that comes from the Word of God.
Day #11 of Moving Past What You Cannot Change
Q: What is one lie that you’ve believed to be true?
Q: What is one scripture to refute that lie?
What is the instruction in this verse?
What is one way to begin to live in freedom?
For years I believed the lie that forgiveness was impossible. I knew that forgiveness was healing. I knew that I needed to forgive to move forward, but the lie said I couldn’t do it. What had happened was too big. Yet when I started to open the door to forgiving, it unlocked one door and then another until I ran out of that lie and into truth. This is what led me to healing and into freedom. ~ Suzie
Suzie will invite you into a place of hope and healing to experience the sacred transformation that forgiveness brings. ~ Renee Swope, Award-winning Author of A Confident Heart
Suzie speaks with the warmth of a friend and the wisdom of a sage to one of our common struggles—forgiveness. Offering down-to-earth help built on a deep scriptural foundation, she reveals a many-layered truth that forgiveness isn’t the one-size-fits all proposition we’ve so often accepted. I feel relief and joy in realizing that God fully acknowledges the difficulties of forgiveness while still holding it up as the healing tonic against bitterness and debilitating anger. ~ Amy Carroll, Proverbs 31 Ministries Speaker
