A Thought: Barriers.
You’re going about your work, focused on your goals, and suddenly, you run into a ‘barrier.’ ‘Barriers’ can be in the form of retro rules, traditions, or even, well-meaning people. Before you react, be sure to respond—there’s a difference: react is emotion driven–response is process driven, utilizing active listening and prayerful discernment. In that vein, ‘barriers’ can be good things by encouraging thoughtful reconsideration to your approach and process. Now, go get ’em!
Psalm 84:11 “For the LORD God is our sovereign protector. The LORD bestows favor and honor; he withholds no good thing from those who have integrity.”
