Over, and over and over again. There it goes. The unpleasantness of that memory, causing you to wilt and wither. The thing that turned you into what and who you are today. It’s always triggered by something. Deceptively lying low inside you, as if keeping a low profile, until something happens; a word is said, you smell something, you see something, or you hear something, and it rises to the surface, and you end up replaying and reliving the damage. And you realize, that you are still stuck. You have not overcome it. You have not gotten rid of it. The replay. Always lurking. Always hiding. Always hidden. Waiting to come to the surface.You have to get rid of it, dear friend. You have to end that replay before it ends you.
What caused the replay? What lies beneath that replay? Who lies beneath the replay? What, who brought this replay into your life, your soul, your spirit, your mind, your universe? Have you become comfortable with the replay? Can’t live with it, can’t live without it? Don’t accept that dear friend. Don’t give in to it. I know it is stuck to your soul, but you have to dig it out and let go of it. Otherwise it will constrain you, for all your life.
Look at yourself now. I mean, like, really, now. Now. What do you see? Who do you see? Where are you going? Where is the replay taking you? What is the replay doing for you? Is it enriching you? Is is empowering you? Is it building you up? Is it inspiring you? Is it motivating you? Is it assisting you to fulfill your destiny, your purpose, your dreams?
I think, most likely, in all truth, it is debilitating you. It is withering you bit by bit, making you lose your color, lose your mind. It is draining you day by day. it has probably led you into habits and doing things that you regret; things that further dis-empower you. For how long my friend? For how long? Stop. Stop the replay. Stop it now. Make it go away. Find help, find assistance, or simply write. Whatever you do, don’t let the replay eat you alive. Don’t let the replay deplete, sink and bury you, and deprive you of a fulfilled life.
The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10 (NIV)
You do have power over the replay!
