This Is Your Season to Shift

Leslie Blue Dress 1

Are you in a season of “I Don’t Know What’s Going to Happen Next”? I’ve personally been there and done that.   If that’s the season you’re in right now, get ready to SHIFT into something GREAT. As you journey through this season, stay on TRACK and don’t fight the process. God’s aligning you with great PURPOSE; therefore, receive this SHIFT with gratefulness. The process may cause slight discomfort, embarrassment, or guilt- but it has a purpose for the next chapter in your life. Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) says, “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”  I can confirm that if you stay focus, stay on course, and listen to God’s voice…you’ll SHIFT into greatness.

Jeremiah 29

God knows the plans that He has for your life. He’s confident in you succeeding, but are you confident in yourself? God’s plan for your life is to prosper you not to bring you harm. When I read Jeremiah 29:11 excitement swells within me because I know that it’s not God’s will for us to wonder aimlessly without purpose. I believe God has purposefully mapped out the direction for your life, but it’s up to you to seek His presence and gain clarity as to what that purpose is in this season.

I’ve always been a little rebel at heart that danced to my own beat. In all honesty, dancing to my own beat landed me in dark places in my life like teen motherhood at age sixteen and married to the wrong person, which caused so much public humiliation. In both instances, I wanted to “ACT” swiftly and not “LISTEN” respectfully to the word “NO” from God. In hindsight, I understand that what I truly wanted was love and attention…but I gained it negatively from the wrong people through instant gratification. Because I failed to seek God’s approval for certain wants in myself, I suffered immensely with public SHAME, financial ruin and starting over constantly. These two examples are negative shifts in my life. As a Transformation Discovery Coach™, you want to avoid negative shifts if at all possible. That’s why it’s important that you learn from past mistakes as you prepare to transition into your next chapter.

As you prepare to SHIFT, it’s vital that you:
1. Pray often.
2. Stay on course.
3. Focus daily.
4. Meditate on God’s word.
5. Change your diet by eating healthy.
6. Read daily for knowledge.
7. Stay calm.
8. Seek God’s approval.
9. Manage your stress level.
10. Get financially healthy.

 
Each tip can help you transition smoothly into your next chapter. The more you implement and practice good habits, the better you’ll feel as God transition you into your next season. I’m believing God for change and turn around in your life. Therefore, start preparing now for your season of change. Don’t wait until God changes your zip code, job, finances, etc., to address certain habits…start now.
Good Shifts Are Happening Now,

Be the Change That You Want to See: S.H.A.M.E.

Romans 12: 2 (KJV) says, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.”

Good Morning Change Agents,

Knowing who you are and who God has called you to be is a powerful tool.  When you allow others, things, and issues to distract who God has ordained you to be it only manifest hatred and SHAME within you.  Take time to hear from God.  Learn to embrace the real you.  Control the negative flow from your mouth, and don’t let every issue in life cripple your Godly purpose.

PUSH for your future is bright.  As a woman or man of God, you must understand that you’re a role model for your child/children.  When your child/children see you allow abusive behavior(s) in your life, when they see you speak negatively day in and day out, or when they see you accept failure without fighting back and gaining ground, you not only hurt yourself, but you’re hurting your future (AKA child/children) as well.

A Shifting of Change: (S.H.A.M.E.)

Sister Healing Against Mental Emotions (S.H.A.M.E.)

Psalm 46: 10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

Hello Sisters Healing Against Mental Emotions(S.H.A.M.E.):

I know it’s been a while since anyone has last heard from me, but sometimes words take time to formulate when hearing from God.  Over the last several weeks, I have witness various sisters undergoing numerous changes in their lives be it positive or negative.  Change is defined by dictionary.com as (2012) “to transform or convert.”  As I continue to grow spiritually, I’ve come to understand that change is needed in an effort to shift gears when God is moving in one’s life.  Romans 12:2 states, “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is —his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (NIV) Therefore, as I continue to journey while accepting change without choice or discourse, I believe in my heart that in order to embrace change fully, I must conform without reservations and allow God to use me as He sees fit.

First, I must conform to God’s plan wholeheartedly without backlash.  I must admit, it’s hard to conform to change when life feels like a twenty foot tsunami raging out of control.  What I’ve found is that I cannot limit God, cut a deal, or even rationalize as to why [this is happening or that is happening].  Nonetheless, it’s amazing how I always seem to come back to one analysis and that is He knows best in terms of my life.  Even when I do not understand why major shifts happen, why certain deviations take shape, or why sorrowful situations occur to good people…one thing is certain, He’s working it out behind closed doors. According to 1 John 5:4 “Every child of God can defeat the world, and our faith is what gives us this victory” (CEV).

Second, I’ve found that it’s inevitable to lose some people along the way when shifting to the next level.  I must admit that change hurts, but as a Sister Healing Against Mental Emotions™ (S.H.A.M.E.) daily, I’ve come to understand that some changes just don’t make sense to the carnal eye.  It’s difficult to conceptualize each purpose right away when God closes one door, reopens a past door, or opens a new door.  That’s happened a lot lately in this season and with each closing, reopening, or opening of a new door, I’ve come to understand that a spiritual shift is sure to happen every time.  But, I have learned that when God closes one door even if it hurts and I may not understand it at that time, He always heals the wound and opens another door.

Third, change hurts.  No one enjoys pain, but with growth comes growing pains.  Oftentimes in life, we’ve become complacent. Thus, complacency breeds stagnation.  As women of God, we cannot allow complacency to stop our growing pains in life.  I’ve come to know that in order to birth my vision, I must undergo the “Labor Pains” of life.  Those of us who have had the opportunity to bear children understand these pains quite well.  However, the end reward is sweet when the vision is birth into fruition.

Fourth, change is never consistent.  In life, I’ve come to expect the unexpected.  Therefore, when God is shifting me left, I turn left.  When I feel that he’s shifting me right, I turn right.  However, when I feel that I’m uncertain as to where he’s shifting me, that’s when I press my spiritual breaks, get quiet, adhere to the word, and wait on him. But, during this cycle of postponement is when I become most antsy like a child wanting a piece of candy from the candy jar, but my father is saying, “No, not now!  Just wait a little while longer.”

Finally, life and death is in the power of the tongue.  If I will it, so will it be.  Therefore, speaking positivity is detrimental to living a fulfilling and powerful life. It states in Proverbs 18:21 “The tongue has the power of life and death, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” (NIV)  My unspoken words have just as much power as my spoken words.  Therefore, I think therefore I am.

In any case, as I continue my spiritual journey of reflection and connectivity with God, it’s imperative that I have balance and associate myself with likeminded people in this season.  While waiting patiently, I’ve come to realize that I need to consistently renew my spirit with the edification of His words, while he’s transforming me into a dynamic Sister Healing Against Mental Emotions™ (S.H.A.M.E.).

With sisterly love,
