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
We are always instructed when on an airplane in case of an emergency to make sure to put on your air mask first then take care of your loved ones. This type of wisdom bares in mind that if you are incapacitated then others may perish. Therefore, even if this is an extreme example; we all must take note especially in this era where we are fighting a worldwide pandemic, it must be key to identify areas in our lives that we can live better. One of the first steps to this is to recognize to mandatorily pour nurturing actions into our lives so that we can address deficits that may drain us throughout the day. Yes, it is vital to take care of ourselves so selfcare is definitely not selfish. Love yourself so that you are equipped to love others in a healthy, well-balanced, and full way. Peace Essence of Myrrh Proverbs 3:5-8
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.
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."
Life can present one a ton of challenges...it has done so for me. Therefore, this movement was birthed out of a harrowing experience that God in His infinite wisdom and loving ability propelled me out of turmoil into splendid peace (Shalom). Yes, it is by His grace and my ability to know that although weeping endures for a night JOY does surely come in the morning. So, I share my personal journey and life nuggets to hopefully encourage all of you that regardless God got your back, front, sides, and all of you. You will make it and YES we can enjoy Life and That Life MORE Abundant! Love to everyone along your journey. Let's take time to recognize daily through our conscious effort to release whatever perplexes us and say "Thank You Lord, because your grace is sufficient for me and you will NEVER EVER Leave me or forsake me!" Amen Indeed, Selah, and Shalom.
