It would be funny how fast time is passing if we weren’t the ones it was occurring.
Remember when we were kids? It seemed like the days, months, and years crawled by at caterpillar speed. Birthdays, summertime, 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 fast moving timeline, trying to maintain our footing company while we grasp at the wants of our womanhood, and everything has changed.
Even change has changed. Does it feel like that for you? Like the big stuff that used to appear 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 and help it make itself at home.
I’ve learned to welcome it, but initiating and embracing change was the hardest thing in the world for me to do. My work shows me clear signs that I wasn’t alone in that way of being. The reason why women struggle with this much is invisible.
As a life coach, my job is about supporting Christian women with giving themselves permission to quit hiding out in unfulfilling lives and careers so that they can live and be more fully expressed, fulfilled, and free.
The part about the women, us girls, giving ourselves permission and quitting with the hiding out, just 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 tough and hard” as one a lot of people live by.
I could not begin to count all the times I thought or actually said out loud”that’s just how I am” when faced with the proposal of lifestyle change around areas like my mental, emotional, physical, and financial habits.
I rode that self righteous excuse for miles and miles and… In fact, it was much easier to make that five word proclamation of protection than it ever was to conceive of the ginormously complex idea that I could be transformed.
But here’s the truth: change doesn’t have to be complex. It really is that easy and organic progress that starts the selfsame second we set our intention to go with the flow of this change.
It doesn’t have to be an unwelcome 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 larger heights personal development and spiritual growth, calling you into transformation: greater expressions of glory, freedom, fulfillment and purpose.
Why fight that?
Whatever changes the Holy Spirit is nudging you to surrender to, trust that all is well. That you’re ready. Actually, you were created to succeed in it, through it, and from it.
Change is the road you will 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 into the frontiers of change will transform you to more of your authentic self: stronger, braver, and so much richer in your faith in God.
