The word “change” can be exciting and frightening at the same time. Depending upon the why, it has
come to the surface. In life, there are milestones we must reach and at each one, there is an expected
growth. From the time you were born, God uniquely created you for a specific purpose.
He prepared a
path that only you are designed to walk. On your path, there are lessons to learn, things to endure, and
celebrations to experience. As you grow and mature, change will eventually call to you, to place you in
the right position for your next. We must be aware of it and take action. It can be uncomfortable, let me
be honest it will be uncomfortable at some points in the process. But tell me of anyone or anything that
has gone through change without some type of challenge. Let me share with you a personal story about
a season of change I endured.
The year was 2013 was a really low time for me. I experienced depression at a level I never have before.
Feeling unworthiness filled my mind till it made me lose my appetite, loss of interests in things, and
wanting to isolate from others. Even though there were no actual plans or attempts of suicide it was
trying to lead me to that point. I had silent anxiety and panic attacks. Thinking I know this is not the life
of how a child of God should live.
One day I was at work at my desk, and I felt so heavy, like something
was over me breathing and salivating to make me give up and walk out of my job. But I was listening to
Joyce Meyer, I don’t remember what all she was saying, but it had to do with the battlefield of the mind.
It brought me peace and corrected me to stop thinking about the things I don’t have and where I was in
my life. Stop feeling sorry for yourself.
As I listened to her teach, my spirit got calm, and I was able to
feel the heaviness lift off. What I learned, is that God is looking at your response when you are
disappointed in life. Get your mind off you and help someone. Quit rehearsing the past. I begin to pray,
encourage myself, and read God’s word. You must intentionally spend time with God. Only you and God
can deliver you from whatever issue in life you are facing. Now others can help and encourage but you
must make up your mind and surrender it all to God to be healed and delivered.
I had to lean on God and begin to thank him for all he has already done in my life. The cares of this world
can begin to weigh on us and make us feel inadequate especially when you see others who are not even
believers of Jesus living better, so we think. As your season of change begin to contract, remember God
is right there with you, this development must take place. So that His purpose of creating you shall be
fulfilled for His Glory and for the world to witness His sovereignty and Love! Go Ahead, WITH YOUR
SEASON OF CHANGE!
