The Best Is Yet To Come

In life, we face many challenges and obstacles! It is how we handle them that determines the next steps of our life.  I am a firm believer that your mindset determines your outcome!

There are several people that are in my inner circle that are facing a variety of hardships whether financially, physically, or mentally! I do my best to encourage them and let them know that the best is yet to come and to stand firm.

When you are facing difficult situations in life, it is of extreme importance to surround yourself only with positive people. This may seem hard for some people to do because some of the negative people in your lives may be close family members or friends. You have to remember that before you can effectively take care or love anyone else, you must take care of and love yourself.  During those rough times in your life, you have to stay positive because any minor setback can cause you to make a decision that will have your life completely out of control.

It is when you change your mindset from negative to positive, that you will begin to see that things are not as bad as you thought they were. I truly feel that this is a season restoration, so whatever you feel that you have lost, will be given back to you double fold. In other words, you will get double for your trouble! Look forward toward your future instead of backwards at your past because you will see that the best is yet to come…when it comes, it will be here to stay! Do you believe that? I DO!!!

New Beginnings

Do you know of anyone that is afraid of change. Are you afraid of change? Both of those are important questions to think about. In life, I have learned that the only thing constant is change. Changes can take place instantly or over an extended period of time. Either way, at some point, we all experience change. For me, the best way to describe change is “new beginnings”. New beginning may be a little intimidating, but it is only because it is “new”. Once you learn how to embrace change and accept new beginning, life will become a lot less stressful.

For example, some of the friends you had in elementary school may not be your friends at this point in your life. You change and people change. We have to remember not to hold grudges when people we were once close to walk out of our lives. Some people are supposed to be in your life for a season and some for a lifetime. This is something that everyone, everywhere has to deal with.

The best advice that I can give you concerning new beginnings, is that when you meet new people it creates new opportunities. I know that Drake says, No New Friends”, but in order to move forward in life you will encounter new people and experiences. Embrace the opportunities for change in order to grow and learn along your journey!

Choosing to Change

No matter what walk of life we come from, we all have one thing in common: choices.  We all have the choice to change or remain the same.  I encourage each of you to make the choice today to change!  Change for the better, that is!

Change is not always received well by others, especially if they will be affected by the change.  There are 3 obstacles that we must overcome before we can take that step of faith to change.

First, we must overcome fear of rejection.  Fear is the most common obstacle that keeps us from reaching our destination.  Fear of rejection by those we love and care for is the biggest.  Just as we became complacent where we were, those around us grew used to our actions and routines as well.

When you change, it not only affects you, but those around you also.  We must strive to get to the place where we know who we are and where we are headed.  If you know your purpose and what you are called to do, don’t sleep on it!  Have faith because that is what you will need!  Don’t be discouraged if people turn their backs on you. When someone’s back is turned to you, they can’t see where you are going, but you can still see beyond them!!

Secondly, we must overcome fear of failure.  It is my belief that you only fail when you give up.  Don’t get me wrong, there are some things that are not for us, so we have to be careful to distinguish between the two…that’s another topic though!

When you have a desire in your heart that is according to God’s will, He will help you to see it through.  You have a special calling on your life and because of that, the enemy will do everything he can to distract and deter you from your destination.  Stay focused and trust God to get you to where you are headed.  Most times, it won’t come easy because your test builds a testimony, your stumble keeps you humble, your mess becomes your message and in all of these things give God all the praise, glory, and honor.  Don’t worry, you will get to where are going!

Lastly, we must overcome the fear of the unkown.  Faith is the substance of things hoped for and the evidence of things not seen.  When you walk by faith and not by sight, that’s when the fear of the unknown sets in.  When you get that feeling, it means that you are just that much closer to your victory.  Although we don’t have all the answers, God has our back, front, side, top, and bottom.  When we trust Him to lead us, there is no way we can miss the mark!

Choose this day to change for the better and I promise you won’t regret it!

The Beginning of Change

The definition of change is to become or make different.  In life, we face many trials and tribulations.  All of us have unique characteristics, so when events or situations arise in our lives, it causes a change.  There are many ways one can look at the stages of change in their life.

It all starts with an alteration! The first alteration is the beginning of change.  This is always the hardest part because it requires us to accept reality and be honest with ourselves.  Even though it may hurt, we know what decisions we should make…the process of the beginning of change.  This sometimes means that we have to let some of the people and things in our life go.

It is important to have strong faith because it is during this time that you need God the most.  We have to realize and accept the fact that God has our best interests at heart and He knows what we need and don’t need. 

“When we get the answer to what alterations need to be made in our life, we must look to our future and know that the best is yet to come!”
