I have been struggling with fear a lot lately. This is amazing to me because I have always been fearless. When God speaks I listen, and I move. This time, my mouth was moving, but my feet were stuck in cement filled buckets.
Embarking on this new season in life has been very overwhelming. The uncertainty about the future has brought tons of fear, and fear has paralyzed me from accomplishing the vision.
I have been blessed with many talents, and each talent catapults me to a new season. This new season of what God is calling me to walk in is so great that fear has blocked my transition. I have been praying. I have been trying to push through it with the old adage “fake it until you make it.” Nothing is working. I find myself in the fetal position in bed.
Today I woke up inspired, invigorated, and enthusiastic about my transition. I began to work at my to do list, and before I knew it ten things was crossed off. I asked myself – what changed? As I looked back to assess, I noticed that my view was different. I realized that when I looked back before I was looking back, and holding on because I was afraid of what was ahead of me.
This is what happens during transition, we get stuck between our past and our future. It’s not that we want to stay in our past, but that it’s comfortable, and convenient. We know all about it, we have all the photos to remind us what what we did, and how we did it. The future is unknown, and inconvenient – we don’t know anything about it except a glimpse of a desired outcome. In order to get to the future we need new photos to motivate us, and help us navigate through our transition.
So let’s get the magazines out, get on the internet and print out the pictures, scriptures, and inspiring words to create a “TransVision” board that helps us to SEE IT! It’s not too late to start working on your goals today. Transition can be terrifying, but when we can SEE IT we can accomplish it.
A “TransVision” board will help us to transition from vision to sight. It’s the words, and pictures that will help us keep moving through our transition. Because if we stop we will never SEE IT.
When we SEE IT, we believe it, we work at it, we accomplish it. Psalm 121 says
1 I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
2 My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
When I look up to the Lord He shows me the vision, He’s all the help I need, and I have to write it down and make it clear. (Habakkuk 2:2)
Write it down, make it clear – in place where you can SEE IT, work it, and watch it happen!
Go get everything God has for you, for your latter will be greater than your past.
