Five Minute Friday: Enable

Admittedly, I had to go to the dictionary to start the thinking process. So here’s a bit of encouragement for you this weekend.

In order to grow in something we have to feed a need. Feeding that need enables – or in my mind – it triggers other events, or it unlocks something. When we unlock one thing, something else gets set in motion, thereby enabling something new!

I’m a teacher of spiritual growth and development focused a lot on spiritual maturity. For years I used to say the common phrase, “That’s just who I am.” It’s been a process of unlearning some things and getting out of that mindset.

The more I got into the word, the more I enabled a new mindset. The verses that immediately come to mind are “create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” (Psalm 51:10) and “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind.” (Romans 12:2).

One step, one action enables another. That’s how we keep from getting stagnant or complacent in something. So if by chance, you’ve been struggling with being stuck in a particular place, consider the fact that all it takes is ONE step to enable something new.
