There is one big thing standing between where you are and where God wants to take you, and I bet you never saw it coming: Judgment.
You may not realize the extent of your judgment, but it's lurking in all the ways you think about yourself:
Where you should be by now.
How fearful you are.
The right path forward.
How long it should take.
How easy it should be.
Judgment is pervasive, and it’s sneaky because it masquerades as discernment. Discernment requires the evaluation of differing perspectives, but with judgment you close yourself off to what else might be possible.
Our judgment is keeping us rooted where we are. We want to remain open to opportunities and explore, but we fear we’ll make the wrong choice. In response, we avoid making decisions (recovering ninja-level avoider right here!) and burn valuable time, our most precious commodity.
So, what does it take to get unstuck? Radical acceptance.
Accept where you are right now. Whoever you are, wherever you are, you have permission to be her right now. There is no other place and no other version of you that you should be.
Do you want to let go of the things that are no longer serving you? Hell yes.
However, it’s only through awareness and acceptance that you can begin to make space for God to align your thoughts and beliefs with His truth so that you can take hold of what He wants for you.
If you’ve done the whole white-knuckle way of life and it’s not working for you anymore, I think God has you right where He wants you.
What do you want to do in response?
I’ve done the work of uncovering and untangling from the lies I've believed about myself and my place in the world. It has been a profoundly healing and liberating experience. I'm no longer trying to carry around what Jesus has graciously offered to carry for me - expectation, perfection, fear.
I've found freedom from all the things that were weighing me down, and I can help you find yours, too.
In fact, that sentiment was echoed recently by my client Dana when we came to the end of our coaching engagement: “I'm living as the person I always knew I could be. It's like I was trapped, and now I'm free.”
