You Can Be Done

Have you ever been given a word, advice, or a little constructive criticism that was not about how good you looked and how pleased the Lord was with everything you were doing? Instead, a mirror was held up to your face and you were given the hard truth? I just want to encourage you today that it is alright to be just totally “DONE” but only for a minute.

There have been times that I have come to my husband for advice and ladies let me tell ya that man does not hold back, and it’s still all done in love. I may be talking with my girlfriend, and she will hit hard with some advice, and it’s all done in love and my little ole feelings are hurt. When I am spending time with the Lord, and I am hit with some hard truths I have to hold myself for a minute. In all of these instances yes, I am “DONE” and yes, I am a little angry and my feelings may be tore up from the floor up but I must take it all in and evaluate. I have to pull myself together and do better, respond better and do what is necessary to get the desired outcome.

If everyone only tells us how good, we are out of fear that our feelings will be hurt we will end up on American Idol wondering why the judges are telling us that we cannot sing! Okay that was a sharp left, but I hope you get the picture. We live in a world where people do not want to be told the hard stuff and so we get what we have today; people who walk around thinking they know everything, people that act like the world owes them, people who do not believe in sin, people who can never see their own faults, people who are madly in love with themselves, people who are excessively selfish and want what they want without consideration of others.

This world lives without sorrow, but this is NOT okay at all! Ladies it is okay to hear the hard stuff and have sorrow because godly sorrow leads to repentance. Repentance causes you to turn from your old ways and we need that. We need to be stripped of those things that are unlike God. I am amazed that people are so religious and want to walk around like they have it all together. I will confess today that I do not have it all together and the Lord knows it! That is why I am so happy that I can be completely naked and unashamed in His presence so I can get it together. So, ladies again you can be “DONE” for a minute but don’t stay there. Let’s make the changes necessary to live abundantly. We can do it by RESTing in His grace! 🔥John 14:15 >> If you love me, you will keep my commandments.

🔥James 1:22 >> But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves.

🔥Isaiah 1:19 >> If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land;
