At 17 I had a life-altering experience that involved “cutting ties” with the institutional church that I had grown up in. Compared to some experiences, mine wasn’t super traumatic. However, at the time it was very profound to me: But unfortunately, there was no one there to help me navigate through the situation or to help me apply applicable Biblical principles. As a result, I didn’t handle it well then, or in the ensuing years, and I unkowingly made a lot of mistakes that impacted my life for many years to come.
Years later, I found myself in a number of profound peculiar predicaments that repeatedly forced me to either Choose God or something else. Eventually, these experiences led to years of deep-rooted healing that I had no idea I needed. At times it was excruciating. However, today I am thankful for my journey: Along with giving me great empathy for others, it has also equipped me with the ability to identify with the hurting and those who just need a helping hand. As I have grown in the higher, genuine things of God, I have gained quite a lot of knowledge, wisdom, and experience in moving from “level to level” in God’s grace and I am excited to share what God has taught me in order to make your life better, more fruitful and God-honoring.
Do you have haunting memories, bad experiences, or mistakes that you can’t seem to get past? Is the culture, peer pressure, unhealthy relationships, a false religious paradigm, or something else telling you to stay in your comfort zone? Are you trying to survive a bad situation that is keeping you swimming in negativity? Are you finding it challenging to keep your head up? Would you like to reduce frustration and stop being tossed around in a faux existence like a pawn in a chess game? Is God calling you up higher? If you answered yes to any of these it may be time to cut ties with what is holding you back so that you can freely pursue God with clarity.
It’s important to remember that cutting ties does not mean that you stop living or loving: It means that, in accordance with the Word and Spirit of God, you no longer allow that negative influence to persistently distract you from pursuing God in a deeper way.
Pretty much everyone who God calls up higher finds themselves in a similar situation sooner or later. If you would like to transition into a more content, authentic, peaceful, and fulfilling life with less internal conflict, then at some point you will be cutting ties and making some difficult decisions also.
Save yourself a LOT of heartache and stress. Let someone who has been there and done that help you through the process in a Spirit-filled, God-honoring way, based upon love and faith, with confidence and integrity. Click here for more on Kingdom Realm Coaching ministry
