Life wasn’t making much sense. After telling the banker to close the business account, an account I had for a little over a year, an account that had become special because it represented progress and hope, I began feeling as though I was losing and going backwards. No matter how much I wanted to keep it open, closing it just made good business sense. I was being charged a monthly surcharge of $15 for not maintaining a $500 minimum balance. Sitting there waiting on the bank teller to come back gave me time to see the connection, to see that I was in a season of necessary endings.
I began reflecting on the past few months and could easily see a consistent theme of endings, conclusions, closure and terminations this included friendships, finances, spiritual and emotional. It entailed letting go of the no longer desirable to make way for the new and now worthwhile, this caused some rather unexpected emotions to rise such as rejection.
To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Ecc. 3:1
Seasons changing are inevitable; they are simply a part of life. Though initially an emotional response can forth a gentle tap on the shoulder by the Holy Spirit helped me to see the gift in this season of transformation. Yes doors we’re closing and people I thought would go the distance with me exited, but it was in these very experiences that emotional, mental and spiritual healing was taking place, fear was being uprooted and outdated paradigms and thought systems were being dismantled.
When doors close we rarely look at it from the perspective that we learned what we needed to learn from the experience and it is time to move on. We typically gravitate to the thought pattern that something must have been wrong with us or that we are have displeased God in some way and are now being punished. I’ve learned firsthandedly that when we are in a seasonal change of release it is because we need to complete unfinished business and tie up loose ends so we can be free of the pressure from unresolved matters.
During seasonal changes life welcomes us to pack up the old, to tuck it in a safe place, not get rid of it completely because despite what most believe, there is value in our past. We must dress appropriately and make sure we have what we need that’s why it is important to thoroughly assess our experiences and to have a point of reference; the scriptures make a great point of reference. In most cases, spiritual solidarity and deep understanding of where you are helps you to navigate the experience the best way possible. It is important to accept the past exactly as it was by feeling everything about it that you were initially unable to feel. If you are in a season of necessary endings, intentionally embrace each and every conclusion and trust that all of it is for your best and highest good.
This practice will help you to have hope in the positive improvements that are surmounting as a result of your experiences and to maintain a spiritual stillness deep down inside despite the emotional storms that may be occurring on the surface.
Until next time, MAKE it a great day!
