Today I prayed and then I listened. I was impressed to define the word Perpetuate. I asked myself why this word? Then I realized that if I personally want change in my life for whatever situation I have wanted; I must be the one to choose to change. I needed to realize what do I consistently do that is in direct opposition to what I say or think or believe I want to do (what I have hoped for being or realized or manifested in my personal and professional life). So, for me I had to define this word as what is my habit? Then what will I do if I don't want this habit to dictate my current and eternal destiny? I offer my own thoughts and breakdown of the word for how we can have life and that life more abundant. I truly believe it starts with the choice and active decision to change who we subscribe as the author and finisher of our faith...then all the other pieces of our life's puzzle can start taking shape - one piece at a time and one moment at a time,.
Metamorphosis by definition identifies the natural transition an organism takes from immaturity to adulthood. When reviewing my life journey I am often amazed at how I was able to "get through" to the other side. My testimony is one forged with challenges sometimes by choice through decisions I made and sometimes at the hands of others unexpectedly. My faith has been key to the fortitude that I have acquired while on this journey. Additionally, the love of family and friends has aided me along my way. We all have a story. We all have a past, We all have a present. And we all have a future. The beauty of change is that it is constant, fluid, unpredictable, and full of hope. I pray in your personal life's journey that you can realize that with God all things are possible and that He truly desires your change to be one of betterment, joy, blessings, and love. The truth of the matter is that with God on our side nothing or noone or no situation can ever separate us from His desired end goal for us. Jeremiah 19:11 Gods Word Translation best says it this way, "I know the plans that I have for you, declares the Lord. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope." Love to you all. Stay rooted in your Faith. Continue to give God glory. Be Thankful in all situations. And stand firm in peace, love, and joy! Amen Indeed and Shalom from Miriam aka Essence of Myrrh Proverbs 3:5-7
Humanity is at risk if we all don't start to become accountable one to another. It is our responsibility to be good stewards of this earthly realm. We must all do a true introspection of our heart to identify any vexing position that would impede the kind of actionable love that God requires...that being Agape.
God commands us to be "woke" and God also admonishes us to not be conformed to this world BUT to be transformed. There has to be a change and alternative course of how we have been living our lives and how we have engaged with one another on this planet earth. So, The Thankful Revolution is challenging all of us to Wake Up and Change!
Life as I knew it would never be the same. I could no longer remain comfortable, complacent, or with a cushion...."When that intruder invaded my world, everything of comfort, complacency, and cushion was destroyed. I no longer felt that there was a place of peace for me to exists within myself or in my literal surroundings. I could not remain comfortable because of anxiety, fear, and the constant harassment that I dealt with in my mind. I knew that I had to get it together and be strong or at least appear that I was a faithful Christian woman who trust God, but I had loss that fortitude."
In the silence there are cries. In the darkness there are wounds. The Father has come today to say NO MORE! No more do you have to be shackled, abused, and beaten. No more do you have to identify as a Victim for YOU ARE worthy, valuable, and loved! You are not a punching bag or place for unholy deposits. You have a voice and a right to speak. You are not alone. The Great I AM is here and there is a community here for you too! PLEASE don't live in fear any longer. Today is the day for your liberation. N.O.W. = New-Beginnings is OUR Witness!

Starting from scratch is not so bad. Hi Everyone: The good news is that The Thankful Revolution is back. The other news is that what was previously built is ALL GONE! Not a thing left, so I have to rebuild. The news of all of my previous work, effort, and information has been deleted into the void of nothingness is a hard pill to swallow but one that has to be accepted. With that in mind, the opportunity to come back stronger with infinite possibilities of how is fantastic. The new theme that I have embraced is as follows: Shift your paradigm, focus your vision, and witness your purpose. How appropriate that for me to begin this New Life experience I have to begin with a blank canvass void of all other influences, information, and intentions. I am as you will realize and as I have accepted, embracing the concept that with devastation comes rebirth. A phenomenon called life comes out of a void such as what our Father did in Genesis. He started from scratch and now look at all of the magnificence that came out of nothingness. I am extremely excited to see where this leg of my journey takes me and you. So, let the N.O.W. moments commence: N.O.W. = New-Beginnings is our Witness Shalom, Miriam
