Hebrew 12:1-2a NLT
One of my least favorite tasks in life is to pull weeds in our flowerbeds. But at the same time, I realize that if I don’t do it, the weeds will take over. This is very similar to your life – if you don’t rid your life of those weights that are encumbering you, they will put a chokehold on your vision and purpose for your life and can eventually keep you from your destiny. Mike Friedrich, one our supporters, recently shared this, “What we tolerate we give permission to exist in our life.” Are there any weeds in your life now that you’re tolerating that are taking your focus off your vision and purpose?
I declare that I will no longer tolerate those things that are weighing me down and I will refocus my thoughts on Jesus, the Author and Perfector of my faith.
