Hello my beautiful readers and welcome back to my site! Today I wanted to talk about transitions and some of the challenges that come with it. When I started this blog the main focus around it was me embracing my single season and just allowing my self to be molded and prepared by God for the next chapter in my life. Though I thought I had some time before anything would change, but as we can see God had other plans.
I’ve been in relationship for the greater part of last year and all of this year and my life has changed quickly and suddenly. I think for the most part I’ve made the transition from embracing my single season to preparing to be a wife pretty smoothly. Now yes I did say preparing to be a wife, no I am not engaged yet, trust me you all will know when that happens. I mean I’m preparing to be a wife in a sense that from the beginning it was understood between Devon and I that this was not just some regular shmegular relationship, and that the end result of this would be marriage. I can’t stress enough how important that is to talk about what are your intentions are from the start to avoid any confusion or hurt feelings. Don’t worry I’ll talk more about this in a future post though! OK where was I, ah yes transitioning, I feel like I’m doing a fairly good job but when I tell you that the reality of how much my life is changing finally settled in and hit me like a ton of bricks.
Seeing that this is my first serious relationship a lot of things I had to learn on the fly. Such as you can’t be in a relationship for just you, you have to be in it for the other person otherwise it won’t work out. You have to literally be selfless and aware of your significant other and their feelings. It’s literally not about you anymore and for someone like me where the focus was on me and growing and bettering my self this was a little difficult to adjust to at first. So if you combine all of those things and add the fact that we are long distance, ya girl started struggling a little bit. But all thanks and glory be to God who is a provider and continues to make a way out of no way. I’ve had to learn to truly seek God with my issues and concerns and trust him like the bible commands us to. My sister Janae told me “If God is placing it in your life, rest assured he’s going to equip you with the tools you’ll need to succeed.” and she’s absolutely right. This is what I’ve prayed for and God has answered that prayer so instead of being scared and apprehensive( which are things God did not give) I need to face this head on with the help of God, Devon, and my support team.
Maybe you’re going through a period of transition right now, whatever it may be, and things seem scary and lonely. I’m here to definitely encourage you to stay strong and courageous. When Moses died and God appointed Joshua to be the next leader, he had to transition from being a follower to leading God’s people to the promise land. When you think about how great of task that could be and not only that but to have follow in the footsteps of Moses, I could only imagine how apprehensive Joshua felt. But God said ” ….. I will never leave you or forsake you. Be strong and courageous….” Joshua 1: 5-6. Take this lesson and apply it to your own life and your situation going on right now. God did not bring you this far to leave you or to not be there to continue to guide you just as he always has.
Father God, thank you for being there for us even when we don’t feel you there. Lord please continue to move in our lives and guide us as we walk with You and live our life according to Your word. I ask that through whatever transitional period we may be going through that You remind us that You did not give us the spirit of fear and that we remember we are more than conquerors and most importantly remember where our strength comes from. We love You and we thank You for everything You have blessed us with. It’s in Your Son Jesus name we ask and pray.
God was extremely faithful in 2017 and I’m standing on tip toes of expectations to see what he has in store for me and MWestStyle this year.
Thank you so much for reading and as always stay gorgeous and I love you!
