Somebody says something or does something that upsets us, we stew, we process and re-process.  We try avoiding them initially by then life carries on, the issue gets placed in the storeroom.  Never dealt with, never resolved but avoided and a division occurs whether we consciously aware of it or not.  This storeroom is taking up space, causing a blockage, God can’t work with us.  There is stale air there, no life. 

Let’s open the doors and windows, go to the people that have hurt us and talk to them.  It’s not going to be easy; it’s going to be hard and it will be a process, forgiving and forgetting again and again but it’s going to be so worth it.

Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom!  2 Corinthians 3:17

“For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”  Matthew 6:14

Don’t wait, don’t put it off.

Cleaning out the storeroom will make space for the Holy Spirit to work and live and breathe.

Ephesians 5:11-20
