I declare that God is bringing about new seasons of growth. I will not get stagnant and hold onto the old. I will be open to change knowing that God has something better in front of me. New doors of opportunity, new relationships, and new levels of favour are in my future. This is my declaration.
A new season. A new chapter.
Like many people, I'm sure, I do not deal well with change. I avoid it, I push it far away and when it is too close to run away from, I deny that it's happening. If I could stay a five year old, carefree little girl forever, I probably would - because it's safe. It's inside my comfort zone.
Yet, over the last year I have made decisions, committed actions that are far away from the girl I was dreamt of becoming. I was so scared to take charge, too scared to listen to God for fear of having to leap and become uncomfortable. So, I started down a path towards a woman I never want to be.
So with the introduction of fall, I'm going to attempt to embrace change.
Will it be easy? Uh...NO.
Will it be worth it? I certainly hope so.
I am going to embrace change in every aspect of my life, whenever it may arise. I am going to listen to God, for he knows which path leads me to the best future. Most of all, regardless of whether I'm climbing up the mountain or feeling on top, I will love myself and the life I have been given.
I want this blog to be a place to document change - lifestyle change, body image change, career change, relationship change, whatever it may be. I want every post to be a reflection of my journey and an encouragement to those who read it.
Change is happening and I'm ready to take it on.
