Most of us have heard of the “Glass Ceiling". Definition: an unofficially acknowledged barrier to advancement in a profession from rising beyond a certain level in a hierarchy.
What about “Glass Walls”? We're referring to our own “personal walls”. These walls stop us from getting from point A to point B, from having that deep bonding relationship that we have always wanted, from achieving our dreams or from keeping us from being truly happy. These same walls can also stop us from having an intimate relationship with our Father God.
We all have these walls in some area or another. Even if we have an idea what they are.....we usually don’t know or understand why they are there. Lots of times these walls feel so normal to us that we don’t even realize they exist. Sometimes the manifestation of our walls look like depression, relational destruction, procrastination, failure, fear of failure, fear of success, avoidance, negativity, paralysis, anxiety, sabotage, anger, disease, loneliness, bitterness, just to name a few. These are not the reasons but the outcome.
Also, why is it that so many people don’t experience love in their lives? Real love – the type that God talks about... a lot. There are many reasons. This is something that many people struggle with…in the church as well as in the world.
Did you know there is something very special and unique about the father role in a child’s life? The relationship between the father and the child is where our identity is formed, and it should be a healthy picture of how our Heavenly Father interacts with us. So, when we are abandoned, rejected or just not emotionally bonded with our earthly father, a deep void is created. That void creates a mind-set, we call this mind-set the "Orphan Wound". It’s a matter of “trust”. This often makes it difficult for us to interact with and have a deep intimacy with our Father in Heaven. Most of us say with our mouths, we believe in that love but our hearts are not so sure sometimes. Truly knowing our Heavenly Father's love is critically important and necessary for a Believer to function as a healthy member of the Body of Christ. Are we still saved? Of course, but a healing needs to take place so you can experience the fullness of God's promises for your life.
