When we forget our strength and size in the Kingdom of God, living life here on earth, we allow all the events, people, feelings, self-talk, and our past, to bind us down. RISE UP! Shake off the dust. Do not be afraid but be strong and courageous! Sometimes we hand the ropes to people and events of the past... here tie me down with this! Sometimes they bring their own ropes to keep us from being who God is calling us to be. RISE UP!
