#RepositionYOURSELF: Live Right, Shift Right

Greetings!

This post is for VISIONARIES.

I am one of them.

And I am not sure how this post will actually end or even what direction I am headed but I know this... I do feel a stirring in this season of my life and even possibly in the lives of others for us to SHIFT NOW!  I do not know exactly what that means for the particularity of your situation but I do know this to be true:  The SHIFT that you make in this season MUST be a holistic turnaround for every area of your life.  In other words, mind, body, and spirit will feel the impact of your shift in this season.  This cannot be a New Year's resolution or a singular item on your "To Do List" for next week or next month.  The time is NOW.  I have been thinking and praying about this for a while now as it relates to my own life and I have learned that NOW is the time for me to put all the pieces together for this season.  Next season, I may experience something different and that is OK but I have decided and I am determined that I do NOT want to miss what God has for me NOW.  

With all of that being said, I know that part of the shift is simply the DISCIPLINE to do what needs to be done in order to reach the goals, experience the change, see the transformation I want in my life.  Everything must be re-evaluated - including how I spend my time, what conversations I have with others, and where I invest my money.  When people say that they are OPEN, most of the time they are only open to more of what makes them comfortable in the place they are.  BUT when you are truly OPEN to the leading, guiding, and directing of the Holy Spirit, the Holy Spirit cannot be made subject to your personal preferences or limitations.  And because the promise in the Word of God is that NO GOOD THING will the Lord hold back from us, well, I am crazy enough to believe that in this next chapter, phase, season of my life - and even in your life - God WILL do whatever God says God will do. 

But let me be responsible with the text and with my encouragement on today.  Here is the verse in its entirety because there is a very clear parameter around this promise:
PSALM 84:11 - FOR THE LORD IS A SUN AND SHIELD:  THE LORD WILL GIVE GRACE AND GLORY: NO GOOD THING WILL HE WITHHOLD FROM THEM THAT WALK UPRIGHTLY.

And there it is!
Friends, we must LIVE RIGHT in order to SHIFT into the RIGHT direction!

The Word that the Lord has spoken over my life AND the instructions that have been given for my next step, may not be the same for you.  That is OK.  I am not worried about that.  I am most concerned that you do "WALK UPRIGHTLY" and remain OPEN for the SHIFT that God wants to do in your life RIGHT NOW!  Your shift might entail preparation or collaboration, disconnection or redirection, activity or more responsibility, networking or job searching.  I do not know but I do care.  So, on today, I want to PRAY for all of my brothers and sisters who are OPEN to whatever SHIFT God desires to make in your life in advance of 2015.  I am praying for those who do not want to wait until the last month of the year to prepare for the greater that is coming when we enter the new year; yet have not dismissed the possibilities for God to continue to answer prayer's in the remainder of THIS year.  I am praying for those who will pray and praise the Lord for all that has already happened in your life and for this restlessness in your spirit letting you know that your best is still yet to come.  I am praying for those who are living right in order to shift into the RIGHT direction.  I am praying for YOU and I believe that God will bless YOU and bless YOU indeed as you trust and obey God's leading, guiding, and directing through this SHIFT.

GOD LOVES YOU and I DO TOO!!!
Blessings, Glory, and Sunshine!
Delesslyn

Rev. Delesslyn, Thank you so much for your sweet, sweet spirit. This blog has blessed my soul in that I am experiencing a "shift"in my life. As I pray for courage, I also pray for peace in that God will continue to guide me in "His" perfect will. May you always be an instrument for God. Continue to shoutout His word so that men and women, boys and girls will hear and want to be saved. Many Blessings and God's perfect love, Shirley
