Life is filled with transitions. That is what helps me to describe the chaos in between the change. When a client has spoken to me about a difficult time and there is no resolution to their circumstances, I will often say, ‘you’re going through a transition, be kind to yourself, change will happen when you least expect and you’ll receive a learning sooner or later, just be still and be patient with yourself.’
Sometimes it works, and we are able to explore the client’s current situation and how they are coping with whatever life is throwing at them. Other times the client’s experience is so painful or unbearable that it feels insensitive to say in time this too will pass. And this is a time when ‘holding a session’, trusting further the power of the Holy Spirit to deliver enough strength, to find the right words to say, or not to say. This is a time when silent strength fully takes its place.
Why am I telling you this?
Because the time between running the show on our own and letting God lead the way, is difficult for most people a lot of the time. It’s a little bit like abseiling and not putting trust in the well known and trusted equipment. You’ve seen other people abseil down the cliff, you’re afraid of heights but want to achieve this new venture, there is even a guide at the top and finish of the equipment to ensure they see you off the top and break your fall. This equipment is the best, it has been tested hundreds of times.
But the next step is yours. Only you can do this…put on the harness, the armour, the protection…trust in its Power, see the destination, its yours. Be helped, be guided, remind yourself everything is going to be okay. Trust. Let go into His arms.
I wrote this blog during my prayer time.
And to compliment this blog post, my daily reading was associated with Joshua 1:9,
Have I not commanded thee? Be strong and of a good courage; be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed: for the Lord thy God is with thee withersoever thou goest. Joshua 1:9 KJV
