It would be funny how quickly time is passing if we weren’t the ones it was occurring.
Remember when we were kids? Birthdays, summer, and Christmas Day appeared to be the only exceptions. And God bless you if your birthday is during the summer or on Christmas… these days always got away like sexy tailed jack rabbits.
But we live here today, on this swiftly moving timeline, trying to maintain our footing firm while we grasp at the wants of our womanhood, and everything has changed.
Even change has changed. Does it feel like that to you? Like the major stuff that used to seem to occur to us, you understand, organically, now just pokes at us from the periphery?
Change shows up now enjoy a raspy whisper, a worrisome nudge suggesting that we invite it in and make it itself at home.
I have learned to welcome it, but embracing and initiating change used to be the toughest thing in the world for me to do. My work shows me clear signs that I was not alone in that way of being. The reason women struggle with this so much is invisible.
As a life coach, my job is about supporting Christian girls with giving themselves permission to stop hiding out in unfulfilling lives and professions so they can live and be more fully expressed, fulfilled, and free.
The part about the women, us girls, giving ourselves permission and quitting with out the hiding, strictly has to do with overcoming the invisible force of limiting beliefs.
I have done (and still do) oodles and oodles of self work around my own limiting beliefs and I remember the first time I came across”change is difficult and hard” as one a lot of people live by.
I could not begin to count all of the times I thought or actually said out loud”that’s just how I am” when confronted with the proposal of lifestyle change around areas like my mental, emotional, physical, and financial habits.
I rode itself righteous excuse for miles and miles and… In fact, it was a lot easier to make that five word proclamation of protection than it was to conceive of the ginormously complicated idea that I could be transformed.
But here is the truth: change does not have to be complex. It really is that easy and organic progress that begins the selfsame second we set our intention to go with the flow of the shift.
It doesn’t have to be an undesirable and unknown enemy we rush to put up walls and raise our fists to defend ourselves against. As a Christian woman, as a Believer in Christ, you need to remember (and hope ) that your steps are ordered by the Lord.
Your invitations to change are always good. They are constantly God calling you into greater heights personal development and spiritual development, calling you up into transformation: greater expressions of glory, freedom, fulfillment and purpose.
Why fight that?
That you are ready. You can more than handle it. In fact, you were made to succeed in it, through it, and from it.
Change is the road you’ll travel into the heights and depths of your untapped potential.
So don’t resist whatever it is that is beckoning you to change. Let yourself go and let yourself be. Every conscious exploration you take to the frontiers of change will change you to more of your authentic self: stronger, braver, and so much richer in your faith in God.
