New chapters in life are exciting and scary! Filled with firsts both good and bad. I’m writing this posts because I felt convicted that we have to choose if we are going to step into the next chapter in our lives or if we are going to try and live in past chapters.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t process the past or remember things. What I’m saying is I think it is easy to settle and never move forward. It is important to take steps. Yes you will fall. Yes you might fall backward. But if you do it enough times you will see progress.
In order to move on in a new chapter, you have to accept the old is coming to a close. Celebrate and mourn if necessary that a chapter is closing and a new one is beginning. This step will help you shift your mindset.
If you are only speaking negatively to yourself, that’s what your mind hears and you believe what you hear. This is why it’s important to have people speaking into your life, life not negativity. It is also why we need to be kind to ourselves. Give ourselves grace and love. Forgive ourselves for mistakes.
You can move forward into a new chapter and you can pick yourself up (maybe with the help of others) when things get tough. Don’t give up. You will see a payoff if you persevere through the trials.

The loss of a child, the loss of a friend, the loss of a job will tragedy end? I can’t say I understand all the trials and pain, but my heart breaks for those treading through rocky terrain. It’s hard and it’s tiring will the trek ever end? It is hard to take another step and even bend. I hear people say when can I rest? I’ve given life my all, my very best. I wish I could say tomorrow the tide will turn and you will look back and see all you’ve learned. I don’t know when that time will come, but I encourage you to keep walking you are worthy not dumb. You may feel like the world is crumbling under your feet. Remember how much you’ve gone through, living life is quite a feat. I’ve experienced many trials and chosen to believe that there’s treasures that have been deposited in me. Life isn’t easy but I’ve learned much indeed. I pray that these words comfort others in need!
Voices are used to sing and shout. Voices are used to create and cast out doubt. Voices are instruments of praise and adoration. Voices are used to make declarations. How you use your voice is up to you. I want to change the world and speak life, too! There’s so many hurting. I hate when people die because of cancer and suicide. God I want to glorify you not disease, speak through my mouth and heal disease. May the church arise and miracles happen where people around the world get a taste of heaven. I pray we are united as one and honor the Father, Holy Spirit and Son!
