Back in March, I shared a portion of my personal life with you guys in relation to a very tough season I had gone through, & I am truly blessed to say that life, for me, has progressed even more for the better, since then! It brings me great joy to know that every 30 days, I’m not the same as I was before. This year, so far, has had its ups & downs, but I’m thankful for the transformation, because I was once one of those people that went from one place to another with the same mentality.
Mentally, I was BOUND.
No matter where I was, in life, my mind kept me stuck on what used to be, & honestly, I never realized that until recently! As I stated in my last blog, God has moved me to Texas! I shared my testimony on my Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001410636973 (for anyone who may want to read, I believe it’ll brighten your day!) Anyway, since I’ve gotten here, which was only on the 2nd of this month, old feelings, comforts, & ways of thinking, have continually come up, trying to stop me from accepting & embracing this NEW start! I was so used to the same old thing, that my mind literally went into shock & a part of me wanted to shut down & go straight into sadness turned loneliness, turned depression, because of the unfamiliar,
I began to pray against that spirit of bondage, & instantly my mind was made new! That spirit wants so badly for me to dwell on what was. It wanted to set up blockage in my mind that wouldn’t allow me to fully take hold of this blessing & journey anew, but I fought back! & that’s what I want to encourage someone to do today. Forget the old & go forth into the new! Because you’ll only get as far as you’re willing to go. Notice, I said willing because it’s gonna take DRIVE! You can dream all day, but that’s all it will ever be without your willingness to make a change. RENEW your mind & get rid of the excuses. You don’t need what someone else has. YOU HAVE IT IN YOU! I challenge you to change your thoughts toward yourself & your situation. FORGIVE those who have hurt you & FORGET about your past, because it doesn’t determine your FUTURE! You are brave enough, smart enough, & good enough. God loves you.
“For I am about to do something new. See, I have already begun! Do you not see it? I will make a pathway through the wilderness. I will create rivers in the dry wasteland.”
