About a year ago, I created a meme about breakthrough. It was during a Vision Board event that I gained the inspiration for the words that were shared:
I thought about the question I posed: “What if your ‘breakthrough’ required a fight from you? A push? A shift?” I realized that there really is no question on whether the breakthrough requires action.
The reality of breakthrough is that although there is beauty in the outcome, it is often an ugly process to get through. No matter the circumstance surrounding the need for breakthrough, the hopelessness, despair, and limitations can suck the life out of you. It’s quite a process.
But, I want to encourage you. I have learned the difference between giving up and letting go. I have learned that in the moment where I feel like giving up, that is the moment where I literally have to pick myself up and thank God for the goodness and provision that I have in that moment. When we are at rock bottom, there is only one way to go: UP!!
It is absolutely necessary to learn how to see the good in every situation. Yes, even the darkest of moments. It was very painful to lose my dad so suddenly, but the beauty in losing him was learning so many great things about him. The blessing is in being able to remember the good times. Even in my moments of grieving him, I LET myself release what I’m feeling in that moment so that I can move on with my life. Bottled up grief never served anyone well.
In essence, in order to receive a breakthrough, you must do exactly that: BREAK THROUGH.
Like the pearl wrapped in the oyster, it came as a grain of sand but one needed to BREAK THROUGH the shell to obtain it.
Like the butterfly that transitioned from being a caterpillar, it had to form in that cocoon in order to BREAK THROUGH.
Like the plant that started as a seed under a pile of dirt, it grew towards the light in order to BREAK THROUGH.
So, whatever you’re going through, keep going. Walk in faith knowing that your situation is temporary, not permanent.
But if we hope for what we do not see, we eagerly wait for it with perseverance. – Romans 8:25
I pray that these words have been a blessing to you!
