Take the devils out your life and preach the gospel ~ Kanye West
This morning I woke up in such a great mood!! I felt so victorious and like I was ready to conquer the world. The scripture says “weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalms 30:5). Yesterday I wanted to fight, but today I felt like a weight had been lifted off of my shoulders. Like I had finally released the devils that had been in my presence.
As I looked at my crafts that I had been working on there were 3 that just couldn’t get right. I kept trying to fix them. I beat one with a hammer to make it straight. I spray painted the other a few times but it just looked a mess. The other one was the largest. I found it outside and wanted to clean it up and turn it into a beautiful gem.
I soaked it in bleach for a few days to sanitize it and then I took it out to dry. Although it sat in bleach, it was still too rough to touch. I could’ve buffed it, if I had the tools. But I didn’t. So I set it aside with the other 2 that couldn’t get right until I could figure out what to do with them.
This morning when I looked at the 3 of them I finally said “I have tried and tried to fix you up and make you beautiful, but to no avail”. So I picked them up and threw them away. It felt so good!!!
I felt so relieved and at peace about it. I actually started dancing because a weight had been lifted off of me. No longer did I have to think about them and how to make them better. The time it would take to fix them would distract me from the beauty I could be creating with the others.
It made me think about life in a different way. Maybe sometimes we have to let some people go in order to find peace and to create beauty in life. There’s nothing wrong with throwing your hands up and saying, I’VE HAD ENOUGH!!!
Have you had enough of something? Maybe it’s not a person maybe it’s a habit. Maybe it’s a mentality.
What is your truth?
What have you decided in your life to throw away in order to have peace and beauty in your life again?
