𝗜𝘁’𝘀 𝗔 𝗖𝗮𝘁𝗰𝗵 𝗮𝗻𝗱 𝗥𝗲𝗹𝗲𝗮𝘀𝗲 𝗧𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗴…
As the old year reaches its expiration date and a brand spanking new one is about to breathe it’s first breath, I am again reminded that change is not only good, but it is crucial for growth.
I love change…until it effects me directly; until it’s my turn to unclench my fist, releasing the comfy, cozy, familiar certainties I have come accustomed to. Oh how I’d love to tell you that I welcome change with gusto, experiencing no anxiety what so ever, but I would be fibbing if I left that impression.
It would be a rarity to experience growth without facing some form of apprehension, doubt or jitters. The unknown is always a bit intimidating. I would say it is human nature to want to see, taste, smell and feel before moving forward. I personally have never encountered change nor growth while being allowed to rely on my physical senses.
I have always had to let go first…”not be moved by what I saw or felt”…blindly step out in faith, and do the next thing God has ask me to do. Letting go is always the hardest, I believe. I would prefer for Him to add on to what I am already doing, not ask me to open my closed fist and release.
But alas, eventually we will all come to that fork in the road. When we do, we then have three choices, actually four: #1-park our butts, stay put and live our life in stalemate mode, #2-turn around and go back in the direction in which we came, #3-take the path that leads to the left, #4-take the path that veers to the right.
As 2022 comes to an end, I have already begun to release. Did I do it without kicking, screaming and shedding a few tears? I did not. However, I am determined to grow and accomplish everything God has planned for me in the year 2023. I do not want to live in the past. I refuse to live my life in gridlock.
As of today, I stand contemplating, glancing to my left and then to the right; I stand at that daunting fork in the road. I know I must choose wisely. My success in this new year will depend on which fork I take. The process has begun, and I trust YahWeh to show me the way.
I want to urge you to move forward this new 2023. Unclench your fist and let go so you can experience growth and change and all He has for you in this new season.
Choose wisely the path you will take because the path chosen will lead you to your future.
