My Confession- Journal Challenge, Day 11
I confess that today I have been in state of avoidance. I have kept away from writing because I was not ready to continue the process of discipline, transparency and consistency. I confess that when I surrender to and complete a process of discipline and sacrifice, I’ve had the tendency to shut down, feeling that I deserve a break. I confess that I am now in my second day of that consciousness and have to double up on my journaling challenge because I chose to start my break yesterday and not write a journaling prompt to publish. However, I did and do journal every day now in my personal journal book first.
Confession brings healing, liberation, empowerment and support. I gratefully receive all that my confession brings and continue to dig deeper, forge ahead and construct my world, using the powerful words I think and speak through this journaling challenge. Through this process, I AM gaining access to a deeper understanding of myself and am stirred to action based on that understanding. I choose to transparently and publicly share my process and understanding to encourage and help others in their processes. I thank God for the opportunity to grow, heal and transform and willingly do so to the glory of God.
What I’ve discovered is that the state of resistance for me is less in time and intensity. I move forward faster in joy with expectancy, grateful for the process and opportunity, grateful for the gifting and expression.
The bible says, “Confess to one another therefore your faults (your slips, your false steps, your offenses, your sins) and pray [also] for one another, that you may be healed and restored [to a spiritual tone of mind and heart]. The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].” (James 5:16, AMP) So let us operate in this instruction and power that we may be healed and restored together.
NOTE: Write Here, Right Now: 30 Day Journaling Challenge day 11 complete. Hallelujah!
