“Becoming”: Free to Receive

Lightening our load, releasing our burdens, freeing ourselves to seek our destiny is all a part of being “Becoming”.  

None of us need to weigh ourselves down with emotional baggage. We don’t have to carry the burden of our worries. Nor must we submit to the bondage of fear, self doubt or loathing. 

Scriptures teach us that God is willing to release us from all of it. By taking all of our anxiety and concerns upon Himself.

So what exactly are your cares? They are different for each and every one of us, but can generally be understood as our personal fears, worries, doubts, anxieties, or troubles. 

By handing them off to the Lord we are demonstrating trust in God that He is able and willing to deal with our concerns.

I hear some of you saying something similar to ( if not exactly as) ‘easier said, than  done’. True but “Becoming” as we have well established by now involves work. Sometimes arduous labor. Making deep commitments and then elevating that dedication to the level of covenants.

Have you ever felt weighed down by your past?

Of course you have. We all have. The good news is we don’t have to keep that weight upon us. 

If your past is holding you back from co-creating a life you truly love. Let it go. TThe past not your dreams and desires. By learning how to release the past hurts, shame, guilt, grief or even times of despair, you are helping to rescue yourself from a life of resentment, or a false attitude that you really don’t deserve anything better.

These kinds of pain can be difficult to release. Nonetheless it can be done. While we can never fully take away what happened, we can choose to survive and go beyond by thriving.  Life is far less about what has happened to you, it is principally about how you decide to respond to it.

You can not create a state of “Becoming”, if you aren’t willing to let the former or current  realities go. Are you ready to do some releasing?

God is willing to release us from all of it. By taking all of our anxiety and concerns upon Himself.

That allows for us to seek freedom, a proper state of mind, and to develop an attitude designed for change and growth. 

Key to that is the concept of forgiving and forgetting. This is a vital part of “Becoming”. Not only forgiving others for perceived wrongs, and asking for forgiveness from those you may have hurt but also forgiving yourself.

It is then, and only then, that you can let go of anger, guilt, shame, or any other feeling limiting your growth. Let it go. Face forward, look upward and you get busy moving on.

You are the only one who can take charge to control your mind, however help is never far away. Go within and ask for guidance, support and direction. Then listen and act upon the wisdom and inspiration you are receiving.  

Part of that wisdom should be to release any false humility. 

What is humility? Honest, true humility is not believing you are unworthy to receive God’s care, rather it is humbling yourself unto the Lord, accepting his Word and putting it first .

Thinking you have to solve your own problems is also false humility. When you humble yourself and cast your cares on Him, you are obediently surrendering to God acknowledging that He has more wisdom and power to handle any situation than you do. Releasing your life to God, trusting Him and obeying His every command, trusting, praying, believing, is in the very essence of “Becoming”.

To let go of past hurts, you need to make the conscious decision to take control of the situation. However, this can take time and practice. Be kind to yourself as your practice refocusing how you see the situation, and celebrate the small victories you have. Take a few moments to make note of something or someone you need to release and once you have had some time to reflect and release we’ll transform our focus toward receiving.

Receiving can also be described as:

accepting

acquiring

collecting

drawing

earning

gathering

getting

inheriting

making

bringing in

The commonality between all the descriptions is that you are being rewarded. Opening ourselves to receiving is allowing for promises to be delivered, rewards accepted and earning a greater sense of self and “Becoming”.

Of course to strengthen our abilities to receive, we also need to look at giving and creating. One of the most important areas to consider these concepts involves love, The ability to accept and love ourselves, the willingness to share and give love to others and the acknowledgement of God’s love for all. 

In order to receive more love, the first step is to create space for it.

Opening yourself to receiving love, blessings and abundance may not come naturally to you. It did not for me. I had to unlearn all I was wrongly taught about building walls and trusting no one.

However as you begin to let those walls come crumbling, tumbling down,  you will develop confidence and foster self esteem. Those in turn will strike a responsive chord in others allowing for trust and openness; both seeds of love.

It might take you a while. Be patient with yourself, and the easier the process of your “Becoming” will become.
