IWSG Giving It No Power

Listen to life, it is the wisest teacher of all.

Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.
~ Hebrews 4:16 ~

Hello friends. (smile) Giving it no power is the encouragement today and boldly obtaining God’s mercy and grace for the it moments.

It can be anything. Drama. Negativity. Critical opinions. Angst. Fill in the blank __________________.

I realized why I keep failing my retest. (shock face) Do tell, I sense someone thinking. (smile)

I keep failing because I have more its than I realized! (shock face) Thank God for His mercy and His grace.

The funny thing about it, is that, it’s usually a past incident that we never fully released or forgiven; and anything or anyone can trigger the memory. Those pesky thoughts.

Let’s stop giving it power. Take a pause to breathe before reacting. Do anything, just don’t give it power.

Growth and maturity is a beautiful thing once we understand that all things and everyone contribute to victory over it. Ain’t life grand. (smile)

We give it too much power to drain our energy.

Entertaining it drains energy.

Retelling it multiple times drains energy.

Forgive it. Forgive ourself and let it go.

Blessings, my friends, by faith, as we stop giving it power. (smile)

  1. Anytime we allow any temptation, or negative thoughts to effect us…any fears (1 John 4:18), or anxiety (Philippians 4:6-7) , or bitterness, or any other sin…we are not 100% spiritually protected, by both wearing God’s WHOLE set of spiritual armor (Ephesians 6:10-20)…as well as being totally controlled by the Holy Spirit (James 4:7-8), as we submit our lives to The Lord…

    Both pieces of scripture tell us that it is possible to keep Satan in check… I can testify to this duo being almost 100% effective, except for complete control of my tongue, which James tells us is impossible…

    May God be given the glory and the praise for the power of the Holy Spirit in my life !!

    Blessings in Christ, bruce

  2. Wise words, Ann! I need to get better at letting the “Its” go. Happy writing this year!

    1. Thank you! The “its” can be painful and challenging. I’m learning better ways to cope and I encourage you to take it one moment at a time or one day at a time. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts. Blessings mlouise (smile)
