The Process: Depleted

by | Jul 16, 2020 | Uncategorized | 0 comments

Hey, my beautiful people!!

 

I am so thankful that you all have been rocking out with me while I’ve been covering “The Process” with you all.

For those of you who are new to the blog, WELCOME!!

 

A bit about “The Process”, basically it’s the making of who you were created to be in the Lord and how He takes you through “the process” of uprooting, rearranging, and rebuilding who you really were created to be rather than allowing you to continuously walk in who you’ve been settling for because of your trauma.

 

Every Monday, I go live on Facebook and discuss what will be live on the blog and this Monday past was no exception even though I almost did not lol!

 

Obedience over Emotions though so your girl did what she was instructed to do. You can catch the replay here.

 

RECAP(in order this time):

 

  1. Coming to Terms: So the very first thing God does in this journey of walking in freedom is uncovering the problem and exposing its root.
  2. Trust: The second thing we must do is trust God into the deep broken places that trauma helped shatter.
  3. Give Him the Pieces: Third, we must be willing to give God the pieces of our mess. God can do more with the pieces of our beautifully flawed life than we ever could. Our attempt to put ourselves back together will never compare to the beautiful masterpiece that God ALREADY saw from the BEGINNING.
  4. Submission: Fourth you must fully surrender. Basically saying God I had enough of trying to do it my way, now I’m gonna trust you. By doing this you are saying yes and letting God lead to do it His way. By submitting you are saying… everything you have… everything you are… all of your plans, you’re going to submit them to Him and get underneath His mission.
  5. Depletion: Pouring yourself out.

At no point is ANY of this easy and most assuredly you indeed have a choice on whether you want to go through any of this or not. Jesus gives us the freedom to refuse.

 

My question to you, however, is what would it cost you next?

Proverbs 4:23 KJV

23 Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.

Every time you make a decision to hold on to the pain, brokenness, unforgiveness, anger, bitterness, fear, etc. a piece of you shatters a bit more and your heart is further troubled. All of this is at the expense of your peace, self-worth, value, destiny, identity, and purpose.

 

Matthew 11:28-29 TPT

28 “Are you weary, carrying a heavy burden? Then come to me.[a] I will refresh your life, for I am your oasis.[b] 29 Simply join your life with mine.[c] Learn my ways and you’ll discover that I’m gentle,[d] humble, easy to please. You will find refreshment and rest in me.[e]

In hindsight is it worth it?

 

I admonish you to be depleted.

 

Deplete: to empty of a principal substance

 

The Latin root word deplet means EMPTIED OUT.

 

God wants you to empty yourself out before Him, so you can be healed, whole, and completely FREE.

 

God’s desire is for you to TRY HIM. Stop taking your situation back into your own hands. You’ve tried it your way and you didn’t get far. You built within the confines of a box He never put you in. (This was a part of the Word He gave me on Monday, watch the full word here)

Pour yourself out. Fully DEPLETED. Be FREE.
