Well HELLOOOOOO LE Family, I hope this blog reached you well and in good health!
I have been thinking about new starts, sometimes it can be scary to step out and do something new, even if that is meeting new people, starting a new relationship, speaking at an event, starting a new job or business.
Sometimes we have to let go of some things and people to take the next steps which can be soooo hard, you can go from excitement to sheer dread of it not working out.
Trust me I have been there, I am always saying goodbye to things and Hello to new ones! I have struggled with doubt and fear, overwhelming feelings of worry, wondering if it will fail and I would be left embarrassed.
Some things haven’t worked out, other things have worked for a season and some are still going. Regardless, I have learnt, I have grown and I have overcome! With the power that is within me, the Holy Spirit POWER-HEYYYYYYY!!!
Whatever is it you need to end and start, be settled knowing that we serve a powerful God who never leaves us.
FOR HE LIVES IN US!
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.
Ephesians 3:20 NIV
What is your personal reflection of this passage? read the passage again slowly and hear what it is saying to you? Reflection: Fill this space with your thoughts…..for example:
This was a reminder to me that God’s power and strength is done by the Holy Spirit’s power within us, rather than by our human strength.
Sometimes we forget this and try to work things out on our own, creating a whole mess behind us.
Often we won’t go for a promotion or apply for a mortgage out of fear or simply not feeling like you have the strength to.
God tells us in this scripture, that His means for accomplishing more than we can imagine comes through His strength.
Therefore we need to lean, rely and trust that if we put a step forward, He will give us the strength and work things out in our favor.
Now go back and meditate on this scripture and ask yourself: where have you been fighting in your own strength ? Ask Him to reveal this to you.
Remember you have to be still and present to hear from God.
Don’t forget to write down what you are hearing and seeing.
What are your personal actions for this new season, what has God said to you personally through this scripture?
Whatever you need to do, do it!
Fill this space with your actions…eg.
My action is to STOP WORRYING and remember what GOd has already done and know IT WILL BE DONE!
What did God say to do to you ? what action are you going to take ?
Send up your own personal prayer, remember prayer is the time when you talk to God, doesn’t have to be fancy 🙂 Prayer. If you are finding it difficult to pray you can say the prayer below to help you talk to God.
Lord your are my strength, you are my rock and without you I am nothing. I know you walk in front of me, beside me and behind in, therefore I will not walk in fear but boldly take charge of my life.
You are the same Lord that raised from the dead, the same Lord that feed the 5,000, the same Lord that resides in me. Almighty and Powerful.
Therefore why should I worry? do you not know what goes before me? have you not given me the strength as you did with David.
As I got about my day and apply this scripture to my heart and life, Lord I pray that when challenges come, as they will do. I never forget who you are and who I am through you. A MIGHTY CHILD OF GOD! For the battle is not mine but yours God.
In Jesus name. Amen!

More Scriptures for NEW seasons
2 CORINTHIANS 5:17
Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!
Do not lie to each other, since you have taken off your old self with its practices and have put on the new self, which is being renewed in knowledge in the image of its Creator. Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all.
Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
2 CORINTHIANS 4:16-17
Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.
Because of the Lord’s great love, we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. I say to myself, “The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait for him.”
Then I saw “a new heaven and a new earth,” for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away, and there was no longer any sea. I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride beautifully dressed for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God.
