I believe that preparing to help others and actually helping others become free and healed helps us more than we can imagine. So get ready, get ready.
Let’s begin by doing a quick self-check. (When I conduct a training workshop, very early into the training, I provide an Initial Self-Check Inventory Sheet to assist in identification of personal “heart-issues”.)
I am adapting it for this blog. It will be beneficial to you to answer honestly. Following the completion of it, I strongly suggest that you go to the Lord in prayer, especially on the basis of 1 John 1:9 and Romans 12:1-2.
I. Is there a circumstance in your life that you believe is blocking you, or holding back, from experiencing frequent joy, peace, and/or fulfillment in life, work, family, relationships, ministry etc.?
Specifically name it_____________________________________________________
Describe how it impacts you_____________________________________________
II. Is there a person (presently in your life or from the past) who you believe may be holding you back?
Name this person_____________________________________________________
Describe what they do or did do that is holding you back______________________________________________
III. What is in your mind and/or your emotions that may be holding you back?
(Be honest) ________________________________________________________________________________
Remember to talk to the Lord and let Him talk to you about these things. Apply 1 John 1:9 and Romans 12:1-2. And remember that our perception and reaction to events and people are under our control. We have power to choose to not be limited or hindered. The truth will set YOU free.
