This has been a powerful year of change, transformation and trusting God’s will.
My prayer for all of you is that you will be abundantly blessed with peace and wellness throughout this season.
I would like to share a few indicators that you are being greatly blessed. This year, I have had the opportunity to experience many blessings through my darkest hours.
We all face times when life is full of things that do not make sense and are extremely difficult. These are the times when our character and faith develop the most. Through disappointment, betrayal, loss, heartache, pain, or when a dream does not work out, God is powerfully preparing miracles to blossom in our life. The greater the disappointment, the greater the blessings. Just don’t give up until your miracles happen.
You may be feeling stuck or buried under the stresses and burdens of life. You may be feeling as though there is no way out and darkness has overcome you. If so, you are not buried, but being planted for new growth. A life filled with new dreams, hopes and opportunities is taking root.
It is only a matter of time before you break through the soil and bear much new fruit. This is a natural and necessary progression of blossoming into who you were created to be.
The dark, difficult, lonely and uncomfortable places we find ourselves in, are the prerequisites for stepping into the fullness of our gifts and destiny.
What I have come to realize is that it is in the dark places where I have grown the most. Just like a seed, if it always remains in the light, it is impossible for it to germinate, nor can it ever grow into what it was meant to be. The seed has to be planted in soil where it is dark, so its potential will come to life from the inside out. That is very symbolic to the greatness in us. We can come to life by growing through those dark places. For it is in those God given opportunities where we learn to persevere, develop character and our spiritual muscle. It is during those times, I pray more, meditate, get quiet and listen to the sweet whispers of God’s direction.
All things are working out for our good, always. It is impossible for us to achieve our highest potential being in the light all the time. It is when we face these dark challenges, opposition, and those coming against us, that we grow in strength and spirit.
I truly believe that when we make decisions in alignment with the greatest good and do what we are guided to do, that we discover our strengths and a connection with God we didn’t know was possible.
Enjoy your blessings and may you germinate into the greatest you!
