In You Are Next, Rev. Rodriguez contends that no matter what is holding you back or keeping you stuck, it's time for a change! It's time to hear the voice of Jesus asking, "Do you want to get well?" And it's time to answer Him with your obedience.
"We find it easy to grow dependent on what we cannot control in our lives. We find it tempting to view life as unfair and to feel like a victim of our circumstances. And we find it convenient to stay put instead of stepping out in faith. But if we want to break our cycle of dependency and eliminate our excuses, then we have to be willing to accept all that God has for us," Rev. Rodriguez writes.

- Let go of old labels you've allowed to define you.
- Move beyond barriers that limit you.
- Stop seeing yourself as a victim and start seeing your circumstances as subject to the authority and power of Jesus Christ.
- Let go of the qualifications you think are tacked on to Jesus' command to get up and walk.
