Lift is the force that directly opposes the weight of despair and holds you up in the air.
Lift is generated by every part of your being, your words, your heart, your soul, your physical state, your mental well-being.
Lift is the aerodynamic force that produces motion as you trust your soul to Jesus.
The power of your words can build you up or tear you and others down.
The depth of your forgiveness sets you free from internalizing other people’s opinions.
The feeling of hurt and despair is natural, but the roots of bitterness don’t have to grow. I grew up hearing a bird flies overhead, but they don’t have to make a nest in your hair.
Jesus said on the cross, “Father forgive them for they know not what they do.” In other words, God’s forgiveness doesn’t rest with me but in the depth of His love for me and you.
