All too often I hear people say …” I’m just doing Me”, but what does that mean?
When I hear people say that it makes me wonder. Who hurt you? Who betrayed your confidence, trust, and value??? Yes, being able to stand alone and withstand life’s difficulties may be a sign of resilience, but it also is a sign of unaddressed hurt, unhealed wounds, and unforgiveness. Especially when you don’t want help, won’t accept help, and deny you need help.
How can you grow anything productive out of damaged soil! The soil is your heart & mind.
Luke 6:45 A good person produces good things from the treasury of a good heart, and an evil person produces evil things from the treasury of an evil heart. What you say flows from what is in your heart.
You probably wondering what your heart has to do with being held accountable. Well, when comes to your heart, your emotions, and your inner man/woman (your spirit) you must know that YOU and YOU alone play a major part in the healing and restoration of it all. Though you may have good intentions of protecting your heart at all close by” DOING YOU” and not letting anyone get too close. Good intentions have never built or produced intended results without actions. Good intentions also have never solved a problem or brought about resolve without an action step backing it up. Therefore you need to be actively involved in the healing of your heart and mind.
Here is where accountability comes into play. You are held accountable for what you allow to affect you emotionally and mentally (not the people and events that hurt you). Though they may deserve to pay…you can not spend your time and life making others pay you for what has already transpired. God is waiting on you to trust him at his word and hold him accountable to right your wrongs.
(Romans 12:19 Dear friends, never take revenge. Leave that to the righteous anger of God. For the Scriptures say, “I will take revenge; I will pay them back,” says the Lord.).
You gotta trust God completely. Focus on the GREAT life you have currently and the Future awaiting you that YOU ARE ACCOUNTABLE FOR FORGIVENESS on your HEALING JOURNEY!
