Not Everyone Has a Right to Speak Into Your Life.

Dear Friends,
 
As I have had the privilege of meeting hundreds of people over the past several years, one thing that always stands out to me is how many people have things attached to them. For example, people allow a critical statement by a third-grade teacher, a failure or mistake made 10-15 years ago or the comments of a negative neighbor last week hold them back from their destiny.

Not everyone has a right to speak into your life. Not every word requires an answer. One of the most powerful principles that you can apply to acquire momentum is the principle of not letting things stick to you.
 
I really believe that one of the major benefits of asking forgiveness from God is that things no longer "stick to us."  He says that if we confess our sins He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins. But incredibly, God doesn't stop there (and that would be great enough!), but He also promises to cleanse us from all unrighteousness (see 2 Peter 2:13). 

When we have received a right standing before the Father, we are free of the failures and mistakes, wrong words and attitudes of the past, and we are released and free to accomplish things for the future.
 
Don't worry if you don't get what you think you should. What seems so necessary today mig?yola-link-is-coming=trueht not even be desirable tomorrow.
 
"In times like these, it helps to recall that there have always been times like these" (Paul Harvey). If we can forget our troubles as easily as we forget our blessings, how different things would be.
 
One way to be free of things that want to stick to you is to take your mind off the things that seem to be against you. Thinking about these negative factors simply builds into them a power that they truly don't possess. Talking about your grievances merely adds to those grievances.
 
Attach yourself to God's forgiveness, plan and Word. Then watch yourself become loosed from former "sticky" situations.
