Dear journey companion,
I wish I could say today is filled with so much joy and excitement for new beginnings but the truth is it started sadness and a sense of grief.
As a transformational life coach I would encourage my client to take inventory of their feelings, look at the God-lining in the situation. Make sure they are breathing deeply and taking exaggerated breaths to release all the icky stuff. I would be the ear they need as they navigate the tough times. I would pray for them and with them. I would be available for the moments.
Today God asked me to let Him be my transformational life coach… He said it so gently that I almost missed it. He said it so matter of fact that I wasn’t sure it was Him. But the tears rolled down my cheeks and my heart began to pump again at a normal rate. I knew God came to my rescue. God said He has me and won’t let go.
I don’t know about you… I don’t know what life is like or what you are going through but I know there is a God making a way where there seems to be no way. He is bringing peace and listening to His children. No you can’t see it with your human eyes all the time but the Holy Spirit calms the flesh that is willing to submit. Today I submitted. I found it extremely challenging and even got angry but like a dear friend reminded me ‘God told us fear not because we would enter fearful situations.’
It’s the simple things that we forget to include God in. Our own strength breaks and we think we can’t do it. God doesn’t call us to do it in our own strength. He tells us our weakness highlights and gives His strength glory.
I am probably the weakest person you could ever meet. My flesh consistently betrays what I know God wants for me. I am constantly asking God to forgive me and change my thoughts. I struggle so much with so much but God… do you hear me…BUT GOD!!! He has got me. I am beyond grateful for the moments. The praying of my community and the faithfulness of God.
Journey companion no one ever said the road would be easy, just please don’t travel alone. God wants to do this with you and bring people in to support you. His strength is better than ours any day.
Love you and always building community,
