Good Change versus God Change. Where Are You?

The Baby Chronicles - Where You Were Before You Were by Beatrice Bruno

New Christian Thriller by Beatrice Bruno

Let’s talk about Good Change versus God Change.

I made a decision to follow the Lord and learn about marketing/promotion at the beginning of 2017. Writing The Baby Chronicles – Where You Were Before You Were, was easy. The challenging part for me was promoting the book and helping folks find it.

How my change began…

On March 2, I began my first book tour. While in Missouri, I pushed myself forward and promoted my book every chance I got. The result? I sold every copy of The Baby Chronicles I had with me plus! And it felt great!

This was a God Change for me. I changed my perception of marketing and promotion. I became the marketer/promoter I needed to be. God gave me a chance to shine. It was not as difficult as I made it.

We must decide within our selves: Good Change versus God Change. As born-again Christians, we align any changes we make with God. We decide whether it is good change versus God Change.

Are you comfortable where you are?

Good change is an indirect result of being uncomfortable. We do things differently to create as little discomfort as possible. However, when we go return to our old ways, we discover we are making a change God has not ordained. We revert to the comfort zone and our old ways. Not good!

With God-changes, we stretch. We become all of what God called us to be. We change our perspective. We become limitless. We perform His Word and will for our lives. We transform and move in ways pleasing to Him. He rewards us by manifesting His glory as we travel the path He intended for us. We are able to make the right choices.

Pray for me as I pray for you. God is faithful and able to perform!

Let Go of the PAST and Be Thankful

Give Thanks

Oftentimes, we look at our PAST, good and bad, and think to ourselves that we are glad..

that thing,

those trials and tribulations,

those tests

are over.

Today, I would like to present a different perspective to you.

 

Thanksgiving 2014

  1. If you experienced a childhood in which you were mistreated, rejected, neglected, discouraged, etc., do this today. Thank God that you made it through the treatment and that He has taught you not to treat anyone else in this manner.
  2. If you have lost a loved one through death, or divorce, or relationship issues, do this. Thank God for the time you were allowed to spend with that person and the memories, good and bad, you shared. Thank God for the growth you experienced, the knowledge or education you received that will enable you to know what’s right moving forward.
  3. If you have lost a job due to forced reduction or downsizing, thank God for the experience you accrued that you can use either in your next position or in your own business.

Many times, we look at letting go of the PAST as a bad thing with connotations of things being wrong about our coming out. But, that’s not always the case.

Letting Go of the PAST doesn’t mean you didn’t live it. It means… 

you made it through,

you survived,

you thrived in spite of it all!

Our PAST can be a catalyst for improving our outlook and perspectives in life… that is, if we will allow it to be this. PAST does not always mean something is bad. It can also mean that some things need to change.

Today and throughout this season of Thanksgiving, think on those things you have experienced and endured and find that Something you can be thankful for from the experience.

Be abundantly blessed! Happy Thanksgiving! #GodIsFaithful

Let Go of the PAST and Embrace 2015…

embrace your future

In approximately 44 days, we will enter 2015.

Some of us will enter it with a sigh of relief: We made it!

Others will kick in the gate of the new season because we have been waiting for the change, the newness, so we could go forth and do those great things we know we are capable of doing.

Unfortunately, some others dread 2015. After all, 2014, 13, 12, 11… have all not been the way we wanted, so why should we think 2015 will be any different?

WRONG!!!!

2015 will offer new opportunities for you, for your family, for your business/ministry.

Do you want those opportunities?

Do you desire to see new, good, better things happening in your life?

WELL?!?! Do You!?!?????

Are you prepared to do what it takes to Let Go of the PAST and embrace the 2015 you want????

Do these three things to ensure you see the 2015 you desire.

  1. Write your vision for 2015 and make it plain so that as you consider your vision, you can run with it. If you do not have a vision, your 2015 is already doomed before it begins. Write your vision out in detail! Be very specific.
  2. Speak positively about your 2015. The life and death of an exceptional 2015 is in the power of your tongue. You create it by the way you speak about it. There are many negatives in life, but what comes out of your mouth about 2015 has the power to create what you want it to be. Take ownership now!
  3. Consider what is inside of you. Every seed of greatness you need to plant in 2015 is already inside of you. You were created, born to do what 2015 is being ushered into your life to do. Everything you want to accomplish is already inside of you. Now, RUN with it!

Much has happened in your life over the PAST 5 to 7 years. Some good, some middle-of-the-road, some not so good. Now is the time to move forward as never before!

2015 is your year!

Be at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let every new year find you a better man.

 

Let go of the PAST situations, circumstances, trials, and tribulations you tend to ruminate about throughout your days.

Create new pictures in your mind to focus on.

Create new conversations in your head to lead you to the great things you want to experience.

Create new relationships that will propel you forward.

Create the 2015 you want and Rock and Roll with it!

Do you lack “Freedom to Move Forward”? 

February 6 and 7, 2015 will Rock your 2015! Register here.

The Drill Sergeant of Life looks forward to helping you Let Go of the PAST so you can embrace the awesome future in front of you. If this blog post resonates with you, please share. I look forward to your comments.

God is Faithful!

Letting Go of the PAST: Healing

What Letting Go Is Not

Are you letting go of the PAST and healing properly?

Have you healed from all you have been through? Are you still carrying around the residue of PAST pains, hurts, disappointments, etc.?

How can you tell if you are carrying residue from the PAST?

1. Every conversation is about you.
2. You find hurt or offense in every conversation.
3. You continually bring up persons or conversations from your PAST.
4. You cannot move forward.
5. (Fill in the blank…)

If you find yourself in any of the scenarios above, here are some steps to help you:

1. Admit you are still hurt.
2. Acknowledge those things that still affect your forward movement.
3. Accept that you are still in the healing process.
4. Actively seek help through prayer and Godly counsel.

Letting go of the PAST and healing from your PAST is not easy. Many things will come up that will hold you right where you are and hinder your forward progress.

Would you like to…

A. Let go of your PAST

and…

B. Heal from those things that continually return and keep you enmeshed in your PAST?
