see people on both sides of the track...
The Bible is filled with people wrestling within themselves and others on choices. But time after time, the ones who did the right things were the Victors.
So, in your life, is there someone trying to point you in a better direction? Is there someone wanting to maintain their own tight grip on you that you don't go in that direction? Is there someone trying to show you a behaviour that perhaps isn't worthy of you? Is there someone saying you're better than that and deserve better than that? Or is there someone blaming others and actually encouraging you NOT to take responsibility for yourself?
I know this much about the thousands of people I have come across in my life... Sometimes people don't actually WANT us to look at ourselves, grow or change because it makes THEM uncomfortable.
So take some reflective time today and step outside of the box... Are the people wanting you to stay trapped or grow? What do they have to gain by the advice they are giving?
Be wise - only you innately know what is best for you. And I guarantee that there is a still, small voice deep in your soul trying to speak to you. Don't drown it out with the voices screaming in your head saying 'screw them', 'I'm right, they're wrong', etc. My prayer for you is that you choose whatever it is that leads your inner spirit to Victory!
