Embrace The New Season
As the season begins to change, it is an opportunity to review the changes occurring in your personal life. The compass of your circumstances possibly has you going around the same mountain in your life. The cause may be the lulling in the valley of decision. It really does not take much to follow the same pattern every day of your life. According to the dictionary, a decision takes a cognitive process that requires the selection of a belief or course of action in the midst of several alternative possibilities. Every decision process produces a final choice. Should you? Sometimes there is a hesitancy to exit because of unfamiliar territory and you are not quite sure where you will land.
Like the African impala that can jump to a height of over 10 feet and cover a distance of greater than 30 feet. Yet when these magnificent creatures can be kept in an enclosure in a zoo with a three-foot wall, the animals will not jump. They will not jump if they cannot see where their feet will fall.
When you cannot see what is on the other side of your new season, you may contemplate stopping. Just remember that your decision is the mechanism that will catapult you to the changed life. Faith is the ability to trust what we cannot see. With faith, we are freed from the flimsy enclosures of life that perpetuates fear to entrap us in an old season instead of embracing the new.
