From the Pulpit & Into the Garden: "Grow Where You are Planted – Scatter Seeds of Inspiration!"

Denial is a strong action mixed up with emotion.
What are you in denial about?
One of the hardest things to do, as a servant of God, is to deny anything is wrong.
How do you respond when someone asks you? “How are you?”
Do you lie and say everything is fine?
Perhaps you have taken on too much.
Do you need a break?
There is nothing wrong with taking care of one’s self.
Sometimes what happens when one functions in a ministry position, she/he will take care of others and neglect her/himself.
This is an act of denial and breach of faith with God.
What happens? Murmuring and whining begins.
Hidden stuff remains hidden.
One who is in denial looks for others to blame.
It is always easier to find fault with another than to look in the mirror and see what is wrong with me. Isn’t it?
The alcoholic denies he has a drinking problem.
The drug addict denies he is taking drugs.
The person who has food addictions will hide his/her eating issues. The list goes on and on.
It is not God’s will to become run down, aggravated, agitated, resentful or bitter. This opens the door to other problems. Come back for Part 2 next week!
