“Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us,”
Hebrews 12:1 NKJV
Sometimes the weight we carry is the issues of others. You have prayed, given Godly counsel, instructions, warnings, lessons, and teachings. .But, they are still not changing, still going down a path they may lead to destruction, still not taking heed. You need to let go of the weight! You have done your job, now you must release them to make their own decision.
I know there was a time in my life (who am I kidding, there were a few times) when I was the same way. People were pouring out wisdom, prayers, advice but I still went my own way! It wasn’t until I made the decision to change that anything happened. Don’t allow your flock, clients, children, or loved ones to stress you out because they are not doing what you feel they should. Release them to make their own decisions! Cover them in prayer. When they ask, keep telling them the truth in love. And finally, be prepared to restore them if the process leaves them with some bumps and bruises.
