Appreciate where you are in your journey,even if it’s not where you want to be every season serves a purpose.
In the Bible it says, “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing.
Whatever season your in, Embrace it. Every season you go through is a apart of becoming. Know you are constantly learning,growing and changing to become who you are. And No not everyone will understand you ,your goals, and/or your ambitions but its not for them, its for you. People and things come in seasons, so don’t be amazed when people fall in and out of your life or When circumstances happen good or bad. You will lose people when you’re focusing on yourself and Life will happen so keep going. Sometimes it makes no sense of the things around you, but if you sit back and analyze, you will see the lessons in your journey.
I love this scripture particularly because it said, “there is a time to beak down and a time to build up.” In the past I’ve had to let certain things and people out my life. I couldn’t hang with certain people because they no longer valued who I was or what I was becoming and When I realized I was doing things that was unlike me and didn’t make me happy, I realized I had to be real with myself and the people around me and say No, I no longer want to apart. For some reason I felt as though I still needed to prove whatever to them or prove I belong there BUT I DIDNT!
when growing mentally you start to think and carry yourself much differently.
You have to stop and start to realize that elevation requires separation.Basically saying, when God is ready for you to move to another level everyone or everything won’t go with you. Be mindful of this. And it doesn’t particularly mean anything bad but you are growing and changing.
Learn to take the lessons you learn into which your headed.
It’s okay to break down for a little bit but you have to build yourself up and breakthrough all the things your going through. As I reflect on the fruit of the spirit I realize God has already given you and I the tools to get through those times.
Live knowing the faith you hold in God will get you through. The moments we spend with our father God is one of the most peaceful and precious times.
When becoming one with God and knowing who you are in Christ you learn you don’t have to fear nothing.
Sometimes we get so caught up in the things around us we become overwhelmed and at a lost for words. But as my bishop says “Stop and smell the roses” live life, don’t let it past you by. Stop. learn. Grow and Inspire the next person.
