TIES THAT BIND

On a sad note, this week a dear friend of mine passed away. I pondered the thought, did he die prematurely? He touched the lives of so many through his music, writings and ministry.

He was a true worship leader in every since of the word. I believe there was so much more for him and I don’t believe he received all that God had for him.

When you allow man to dictate your life you lose out on many opportunities. I believe in this life when you give of yourself you should reap a harvest on earth.

Bottomline: You can’t let people keep you in a box because they are in one. It’s called “control”. People that try to control others see the greatness in you and therefore they try to hinder you from moving forward in life. In their mind they don’t want you to achieve more than them.

My declaration is to stop allowing people to keep me boxed in. There has to come a time to get out of the box and proceed to fulfil your purpose in life not in the life of others.

Seize the moment each day to reach for more and not to stand stagnant in the wait of others. Selah!!!

  1. Ms. Coretta I really agree with you. I’ve allowed people to box me in for years and now I travel places I use to only dream about. Those that had me boxed in now tell me I have a problem and I have change. Yes, I have changed. I now live my life and not let others dictate where I go and when I go. Your right it’s called control. As long as they were controlling me I was were they wanted me to be. Thanks for such encouraging words. Sorry for your loss……great post!
