Every single thing we do registers, it records in our consciousness it leaves a mark, an imprint. Any time we do less than we are capable of doing it imprints on our self image. We can move forward into growth or back in safety, If we move backwards all day long, a big negative hole needs then to be filled. Some fill it with alcohol, others shopping, others, drugs, others work. All of us have gifts and capacities clamouring for use, by not using them we are going to feel a level of angst anxiety depression. These feelings are really indicators that there is an opportunity to grow. Invite someone to take a closer look at Christ who despite his feelings in the Garden of Gethsemane heard the call of God and moved forward in response.
