Transformation Sequel – Good-bye & Hello

Transformation Sequel – Good-bye & Hello

Good-bye, Afraid. Good-bye, Ashamed.

Tonight I have learnt something really cool and exciting about myself. I have transformed spiritually, mentally and emotionally; truly getting to know (and love) myself. I dont care what others think of me. The cross has set me free. Another chain down. Another step in healing and learning my identity in Christ. Pretty exciting, right? Well, let me explain how I came to this realization and a new found..ME.

Its Friday. Its cold. Its December.

*interruptions begin*

As I write this, my sister is complaining about it being 11:17pm and she has to work at 10am tomorrow morning. Typical.

I can’t even talk, think or write at the moment. Trying to discuss the above paragraph with them has been completely turned and redirected to something I am not even talking about. Completely misunderstanding what I’m trying to say.

*An hour later and without interruptions*

And just like He promises, He will never leave or forsake you. I was finally understood.

END DRAFT


The post above has been saved as a draft since 2017.

Transformation takes time. I remember that night. Another night explaining my transformation and feeling like I’m not being fully understood.

When you hear someone giving God praise, it’s not because the Lord answered their prayer right away or because they are being boastful. No, friends, (because of their faithfulness and obedience to an understanding, forgiving, and loving Father) they are seeing true, undenying transformation in their lives.

Transformation takes time. I no longer feel misunderstood, and if I am, that’s okay. It is now 2019 and it feels like that draft was saved years and years ago. The transformation that has taken place since then is ridiculously beautiful. Humbling. I’m beyond thankful. When you say good-bye to those chains, you see the beauty that was created along the way; a transformed you.

He hasn’t forgotten or left me.

Neither has He left you – –

This is how I know they had a GREAT day!

I am so blessed. Truly. I had another amazing conversation with Landon tonight, my 10 year old. So powerful.

I’m so thankful for being able to see myself as the woman I am. The ways God has (and continues to!) morphe me since 2015 is absolutely outrageous! ❤️ Humility is a beautiful thing and it is how we develop. I can’t imagine being too afraid to speak of my trials because then no one would be able to SEE, not just hear and be told, how GREAT GOD IS! Your perspectives change (not all at once but in His time, when you’re ready), you start feeling JOY again, you’re able to see people as a LIVING PERSON and empathize with others before even thinking of passing some sort of judgment, you LEAD YOUR CHILDREN by an EXAMPLE that you are 100 percent confident in because you’re not being lead by your flesh but by SPIRIT, your seeds FINALLY take root because the soil they have fell upon is GOOD, you notice that you your home is more in order because YOU are no longer harboring internal chaos, you figure out what the real desires of your heart are, and you realize that your life does HAVE PURPOSE when you truly, sincerely, and genuinely walk with the Lord. He knows your heart! You can’t fool him! 💜 Thank you, Jesus! And for giving me an incredible husband to experience all of this with and to just grow in the Lord and in purpose with!

I don’t make excuses anymore. I face my problems head on. As soon as I told God I was ready to start tearing down my strongholds, in 2015, it’s been one chain, one stronghold after the other – GONE, UNBOUND, UPROOTED. And He isn’t finished with me yet!! Some valleys were longer and deeper than others, some far more painful but the outcome of that pain is beauty! It’s strength, love, identity, purpose, knowledge, wisdom, joy, happiness, and so so so much more!

When I was in my last season which was preparing my soil, there were so many trials. Within the last week, I have FELT a few of my seeds take ROOT in that soil I churned up and cleared out. 🙏🙌

Thankfullness; have you ever rested in it?

Truth and Freedom

Truth and Freedom

One thing I’ve learned on my journey thus far is this: our spiritual freedom is found as we learn the truth about the lies that have held us captive. These are the moments in which love breaks through the darkness and the blinders begin to fall off of our eyes, revealing the sweet freedom that is ours to walk in.

There are spiritual forces at work that try to lure us into their world of lies. Once we buy into those lies, they create an atmosphere or subculture around us from which we live, operate, and see our lives.

Therefore, oftentimes, what’s going on outside of us reveals what’s going on deep within us. Whether it’s the news, social media, circumstances, our spouses, children, leaders, friends, the driver in the car in front of you, coworkers, or that person walking down the street, any of these can push our buttons and squeeze our lives like a toothpaste tube. It’s when we are under pressure that we see what is within us.

Is it anger? Control? Fear? Unforgiveness?

Or is it peace, love, joy, patience, and the like?

I recently resigned with my employer after many discussions regarding what needed to change in my department. I held a very important role within the company and sincerely loved the responsibilities I had and about 80 percent of the people I had the pleasure of working with. Instead of feeling fear when deciding to resign from that position, I felt joy and peace. Even though there are still pressures around me, I know that I have given my life and ALL its circumstances to Christ, therefore, I’m EXCITED to see what He has planned for my future endeavors and for my family. The enemy can try to lie to me and tell me that I don’t have value, I’m not smart, or that I made a mistake but since Christ is at the center of my life, I know that there was no mistake made and that I’m wonderfully made in His image. I am deciding to not live in the enemies lies.

What if I told you there’s a way to break free from the lies you’ve found yourself living in, that there’s a way to step into the truth that is wrapped in love, enabling you to create the culture of the kingdom of heaven inside your heart and around your life?

In some seasons it feels like a fight to step into spiritual freedom, and in other seasons there’s a beautiful ease in aligning ourselves with what is already ours in Jesus. It’s an ongoing process for each and every one of us and, of course, a very personal one. It’s a journey I hope we can share together. I believe I can help as a fellow traveler on the path of freedom.

Freedom from the lies is available to all of us through God’s Son, Jesus, and the gift of our helper and counselor, the Holy Spirit. We just have to be willing to do what it takes to partner with the truth and step into it.

You Him and Her 💜
