“Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you” (Ephesians 4:32, NLT).
Breaking the Pattern of Unhealthy Relationships: Did you tune in to my “In the Spirit Realm” radio talk show? If not, shame on you! But I indeed hope that each of you enjoyed your Mother’s Day weekend. I would like to give a recap and reflect on last Saturday’s topic. We discussed the different relationship categories between mothers and daughters (sons). The categories were broken down as follows: 1) Living mother/great relationship, 2) Deceased mother/great relationship, 3) Living mother/no relationship or broken and 4) Deceased mother/no relationship or broken. I shared ways to help each category deal with unresolved feelings and to work towards restoration. Category three was the focus of the show and I discussed how unforgivenes is a major barrier for healthy relationships. It does not have to remain a barrier if we are willing to make it a stepping stone.
Spiritual Manifestation: Regardless of the category, I challenged listeners to take a step towards healing and specifically for those that have unforgiveness in their hearts towards their living mothers, the challenge was to work towards forgiveness. Many children were in conflict about calling their mothers on Mother’s Day because of past incidents. I shared a testimony about me and my mother. For years I held a grudge against her, but because of our willingness to move forward or more so my willingness, God healed my brokeness and allowed me to get to a place where I could have a healthy relationship with my mother with boundaries. In order to move towards having a healthy relationship, we have to work on unforgiveness. In order to work on unforgiveness or decisional forgiveness, we have to apply Ephesians 4:31 and get rid of those unhealthy emotions. Once we take these steps, we will break the repeated cylce and break generational curses. I did not want to pass down a generational curse to my daughter. As reflected in my highlighted picture, once you take these steps and go through the process, you will have the opportunity to make new and pleasant memories. This past Mother’s Day was not only special because it was my first one as a new, first time mother but it was also the first Mother’s Day spent with my own mother. We all had a great time! I challenge you to walk in obedience and follow the command given in our lifted verse and start manifestation today!
With Love in the Spirit,
