Volume 13, Issue 24: Transitioning Well

Even with an ending of an era, things can be beautiful. Joy can still be found in a time of goodbyes, even in the face of uncertain tomorrows. God has a way of making all things beautiful.

A time comes when a term of service comes to an end, when your time in a particular place comes to an end. A time comes when we have to accept that what was will no longer be, and that something else, something new, something different will be taking the place of what was.

Transitions are inevitable at some points in life. It's often said that transitions are difficult. But I think that this is not necessarily true. Having a difficult transition is optional. You can choose to have an easy transition by preparing for it and having a good attitude about it.

Volume 13, Issue 23: Change and Thrive

Have you ever been in a situation where you knew beyond a shadow of doubt that the other party in the situation with you was the one on the wrong? I have, and on many occasions.

Most of such situations lived out their lifespan without a change of heart from myself. Fortunately, I got enlightened in a recent situation where I was just as certain that it was the other party who needed to change. I realized that even if I strongly believed the other party was on the wrong, it was I who needed to change.

Could it be you who needs to change in that situation you're in?

A change of heart can make all the difference in a relationship. "What took me so long?" I wondered when it finally dawned on me that I held the key to freedom. I reckoned that I would rather have happy people in my corner than have my expectations met. I feel so much freer and lighter. Free to enjoy the people. Free to be fully myself around them, withholding nothing. Free to provide direction. It is wonderful!

Consider reflecting on this. You might just get to the other side thinking as I did. "That all along, it was me who needed to change yet I didn't even know it." And when you change, you will marvel at the outcome of what you think of the situation, and how you feel about it, and the person or people involved.

Some people may never change. Some situations may never change. But you and I can change how we frame the person or situation. You and I can change and thrive irrespective of whether the person or situation ever changes.

Volume 13, Issue 22: Intentional Self Care

Some people who are very industrious struggle with slowing down on a regular basis for self care. If there are things to be done, they will plough through them, pushing past their fatigue. This isn't a good practice by any standard.

Self care is about listening to your body. There are days when I can go on with work for hours on end, like last Friday and Saturday because of an event I was hosting that Saturday afternoon. Today I noticed that my body wasn't feeling like being pushed too much. I am glad I listened and took it easy this afternoon and evening.

If you are anything like me, let's make a practice of listening to our bodies and take regular breaks. I hide behind going to bed early almost every night and getting enough sleep. But I think that's not good enough. I also need to take a short break whenever I feel exhausted during the day.

Let's give self care some thought and see how best we can incorporate little bits of rest throughout the day, while remaining industrious.

Volume 13, Issue 21: Steadfast In Faith

When things are not working in an area of your life. It could be a health or financial challenge. Or your teenage or adult child is not walking right in one aspect or another. Or things are chaotic at your place of work. Or you are battling with barrenness in an area of your life. Search the Scriptures to come up with relevant prayers to pray over the issue.

Choose to walk in faith no matter how long it takes for your dream to manifest. Stand firm on the Word of God and declare it for as long as it takes. God watches over his Word to fulfill it. He is faithful to act in accordance with his Word.

Whatever you correctly believe is right for you, be persistent in the pursuit of it in faith and prayer, however long it takes. It's the best course of action to take. You have nothing to lose by being steadfast in faith. After all, the worst that could happen is that you don't get what you are seeking.

Trust God to come through for you, even when it seems unlikely or impossible. Sometimes the circumstances on the outside look so hopeless. Don't let that intimidate you, because nothing is too hopeless for God to turn around. Keep praying about it and trusting God no matter how bleak the situation seems.

Don't sit back and let life happen to you. Take control by fighting for what you want by reaching out to God to intervene for you. Then trust him to do what he chooses. And trust that his choice for you is the best deal you could ever get.


For His Glory,

Volume 13, Issue 20: New Beginnings

New beginnings are possible at any point in life. You can say, "from this point on, this is the direction I am taking." You can say, "from this point on, I am no longer doing that or being like that, or taking that, or allowing that to happen."

New beginnings are possible every day or week or month or year. All it takes is an "aha" moment. That is why it is important to constantly expose ourselves to new information and knowledge. We do that from attending seminars and conferences, reading books, listening to podcasts among other avenues.

I have found that making a new beginning puts a spring in one's step. It brings excitement and vibrancy. It makes one feel like a new person, with a new lease of life, ready to achieve great feats.

Don't deny yourself the opportunity to make new beginnings every now and then. It's denying yourself the opportunity of making amends in your life, righting wrongs, taking a course of action for the betterment of your life and other people's.
