“But for the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law.”
It has been a while since last I blogged. Much has transpired in that time for which I’ve not been able to be here. It was my initial intent to blog 2-3 times a week, but when that became like a chore and not something I was looking forward to doing, I decided not to. The joy of blogging had left me. I allowed outside circumstances to syphon my joy. My dad’s illness, my job (not my passion), my relationships, LIFE in general. So, I QUIT…or so it would seem.
However, as I was receiving notifications from other bloggers, I realized that they were writing about some of the very same things that I was dealing with. Aging and sickly parents. Marriage and children. Dead-end jobs. Feelings of inadequacy. Those we loved and lost. Dreams deferred. Being alone and lonely.
In the past 5 to 6 weeks, GOD has truly been working on me and in how I chose to deal with these situations. I was reminded that walking in the Spirit of the Lord doesn’t change the situation, it changes my response to such. The scripture I referenced has helped me through a lot by prompting me to respond to the circumstances accordingly.
Consequently, it has made me a better Life Coach, because I am not just guiding people to make the right…or, as I would like to call it…righteous decision, I am also walking in my truth. My truth is that I was called to do something greater than myself or the self that I was claiming to be. I was looking for a life raft in others, while I had all of the necessary tools the whole time.
In my absence from my blog, I have evolved a great deal and I am pleased to offer that where I thought I was free of certain baggage, I now fully envelop what it means to be whole and what steps I needed to take in getting to this place of wholesomeness. I, like many others, am still a work in progress, but I thank God for removing my blinders.
So, I welcome you, I dare you, I triple double-dog dare you to brave the elements that life will throw your way by walking your Pathway toward Spiritual Rebirth, as I have done.
