Transitions - Stepping Stones Toward God's Glory
The idea of change kept me immobilized as a granite statue surrounded by guilt and shame. Venturing beyond my limited comfort zone overwhelmed me. It did not seem safe. Eventually it became "Do it or die"; because "What I resist persists". The pain of my resistance made it necessary to use 'free will' in the choice to outgrow my fears of change. I had to learn to accept God's love for me and in me to flourish.
Fortunately, surrendering to God's Will became my new focus. Opportunities opened. They allowed moving beyond my comfort zone into God's reality, if I relied 100% on faith and trust in His protection and safety. It felt like God putting His hands up to the cliff and saying "Step in. I will never let you down".
Each new step through the fear, anger, and ego-driven behavior brought self-esteem and fulfillment. I realized that I deserved a happy, joyous life of freedom from the battering and abuse in my life.
The transitions brought unfamiliar emotions. With my commitment to leave the old ways of self-sabotage and self-destruction, a new dimension gradually unfolded. The changing feelings were uncomfortable and strange; they meant it was the right path. I prayed, "God, I need more faith for this one." Asking for His help made the difference, knowing I was in God's hands throughout the process. Accepting this time of transformation leads me into the good life I always wanted. Now, the leaps of faith were not as big a barrier.
My false beliefs changed. Told to "move out of my head and into my heart" also made a difference. Now motivated from love instead of fear, each change brought more of the Great Reality. It took many years to realize this process had nothing to do with feelings. It is about action. As Cayce says, "Do it!". My rewards became the love, prosperity and health like a pay check for a job well done.
This inner venture also manifests in our daily lives. New opportunities open with new lessons and challenges for growth. Congratulations, Paul Betz, for accepting this transition knowing that the goodness of the universe supports you in all things.
For only that which is continuous in its creative influence - as Life itself - is everlasting. For that which is, was, and ever will be (Ecclesiastes 3:15).
Only the mortal or material, or matter, changeth; but the expressions of same prompted by the Spirit of truth live on. 1448-2
