I know. I feel it too. Right now, you feel like your world is out of control. Any sense of routine that you had grown to love has gone. The world around you is volatile and that creates uncertainty…which creates some insecurity in your head. I know. I get it. You are not the only one. There are lots of us.
When we are shaken out of our comfort zones into a new world of unfamiliarity, our first reaction might be to be angry or resentful of our current circumstance. Now is the time to take God’s hand tightly and look for the positive ways that you can use this time to grow and change with the season you are in.
Instead of getting aggrieved with your situation, you have to change your mindset and look for the positive side of the environment of which you are now in. After all, you know that the ONLY thing that we can actually choose is our reactions to the things that happen to us. You are going to have to look at things a different way. Accept the change. Acknowledge it and welcome its challenge.
It is through the pruning that we grow.
It is super easy right now to just throw your hands up and give up. To let yourself go. To stop giving a shit. Right now, it is not the time to do that. You have been knocked down. Dust yourself off. Look up. Take God’s hand and march forward.
Now is the time for you to decide who you want to be and how you want to react to the changes.
Now is the time to display your character and the fortitude you have to get through times that try every inch of your soul.
Now is the time to fight against the devil that whispers negativity in your ear.
Now is the time to get off your butt and get onto your knees and talk to God.
Now is the time to show everyone what you are made of. You have strength, grit, perseverance, faith, trust, love, and hope on your side. You are so much stronger and resilient than you think you are.
You are not alone.
