Hindrance - “Who Or What Is Holding You Back” was inspired by God. This book was designed to identify some of the areas that have been strategically placed to block the plan of God for our lives. Although the title speaks for itself, we must ask ourselves a question. What is holding us back from fulfilling our God given destiny or becoming all that God has called and created us to be? Often times, during our everyday journey, we find ourselves in the same predicament. We are heading on a road or path leading toward God’s perfect will for our lives. The pathway is made straight; the surroundings are clear and suddenly we find ourselves coming to a complete stop. Prior to this, we noticed a change in our surroundings along the way. We began to experience a little bit of disappointments here and there. There are times, on this journey, when we will experience a few heartaches and even some pain. We thought everything was going to be all right when the disappointments, heartaches and even pain began to disappear. Suddenly without warning, we come to a complete STOP!! Trouble is on every side. We began to question what went wrong along the way. How could this have happened? Why? Why me? Why not you? God has created each and every one of us for a divine purpose. You are not a mistake neither is your existence or life in vain. I believe that once we identify and conquer those things that are holding us back, and then we can move forward into our God given destiny.
