Step off the Sidelines

Maybe you feel it too…it’s the bridge week between holidays…trying to rest up from one and gear up for another…

Maybe you’ve seen them too all the magazines in the grocery story aisle with the best and worst lists…counting up the tragedies of the year…depressing just standing in line buying milk.

Just wish we could move on…and not focus so much on counting up all the bad things.

Maybe you do this in your own life…I certainly have…obsess over something bad that’s happened and you let it limit you. 

Talked about this yesterday and asked you to share the moments you want to forget of 2011, We were overwhelmed with your responses…

One woman says she wants to get rid of being resentful and angry at her mom for missing out on a relationship with her father

Mattie…wants to leave behind depression, sadness, unhappiness, and loneliness

Jeanne was laid off and wants to forget being laid off, and living with no self worth, depression and feeling like she’s not living up to God’s potential….

Love Mandissa’s song “Waiting for Tomorrow"…a lyric says “God Made you for so much more than sitting on the sidelines.” 

Time to move off the sidelines on to the playing field…stop letting the bad stuff limit you…and live a full life. 

Peace Out 2011…as promised we are now Shredding the bad memories and looking forward to fresh clean slate…only God can make this possible…

Peace Out 2011

“it’s the best of the times…the worst of times.”

Maybe you’ve seen them too…those T.V. shows that start counting up the best and worst of the year.  Everything from natural disasters and fashion disasters. 

Not a big fan of the worst lists…rather just see the best. 

Maybe you had some of those in your life this year…maybe a personal disaster that you want to forget.

Instead of playing out your worst list in your life for 2011…what about writing it down and then shredding it. 

Totally serious about this.  When you hold on to those bad memories,  hold a grudge against someone who has done something bad to you, or worse hold a grudge against yourself, it eats you up, you start to stink…you sink into depression and you live your life full of anger instead of the Abundant Life that the bible says God has planned for you.   I know…because I have been there, done that.  Not anymore.

No No.  The bible says God doesn’t count up your sins…let your self and others off the hook.

Got this idea…If you’d like you can post the “Moments you want to forget of 2011” here or on my Facebook Page...I’m going to literally print them out and shred them.   You deserve to live the life you love…if there’s junk in it that you don’t like…get rid of it.

When bad stuff happened…My Grandma always used to say “FIDO…Forget It Drive On”. 

So…Peace Out 2011...hello clean slate.
