Immobilize: To hold fast or prevent from moving.
Life is about living.
About moving on: growing, learning, loving, hurting, healing, teaching, sharing experience, caring, failing, re-charging, winning, rising, accomplishing, laughing, crying, and all the failing (or apparent failing) that instructs us in-between those times of absolute bliss. Life is wonderful!
Every day is a new beginning, the start of a new year or passage in our lives. Purposeful action is the stepping stone which cements our future.
Every day, every year we must immobilize something of word or thought or action that may lead to a negative realisation or attitude or outcome. Do not deny that the negative is possible or likely, but deny it life. So immobilize it, that it dies. Let it never come into being.
“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus:” Phillipians 2:5
“Commit thy works unto the LORD and thy thoughts shall be established.” Proverbs 16:3
“…Wherefore think ye evil in your hearts?” Matthew 9:4
Allow that thought of negative realisation to pass on to nothingness. Watch its rancour be swept away.
“Do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him.” Colossians 3:17
“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved,” Roman’s 10:13
“So they strengthened their hands for this good work.” Nehemiah 2:18
Pin that action of negative outcome, like some pin butterflies, to a prayer. Watch its impulse flutter and die.
“His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Psalm 34:1
“And in their mouth was found no guile;” Revelation 14:5
“Let my mouth be filled with Thy praise and with Thy honour all the day.” Psalm 71:8
Trap that word of negative attitude under a drinking glass. Watch its meanness suffocate and expire.
Immobilize your faith in Christ. Hold it fast. Prevent it from moving… and watch it move mountains!
