10 Journey Lessons While in Transition

I am on and have been on an interesting journey. I didn’t know until recently that I would be led to share on social media some of my lessons I am learning on my journey. I have not achieved all the lessons yet. However, I am thankful that God began to show me some of the lessons I need to learn in order to grow deeper with Him and to fulfill His plan for my life. I am not sure what journey you are on; however, I pray that by me sharing some of my journey lessons it will encourage you , bring direction and inspiration to you while you are on your journey. Lastly, I pray your faith fails not. God Bless You. #shontelinspires #journey

Focus Scripture: Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 3:12-14 NKJV)

Journey Lesson#1: Learning to Trust God’s Timing.

Journey Lesson #2: This battle doesn’t belong to me/you. It belongs to God. So let Him fight it.

Journey Lesson #3: While in transition take time to rest. Slow down and rest; you will need your strength for the journey.

Journey Lesson #4: Stop tripping, God always Provide. It’s just a matter of time. Read 1King 17:4.

This journey lesson right here I am learning the hard way I have to tell myself constantly, Stop Tripping. I share these personal lessons because I am learning so much while on this journey. Be encourage.

Journey Lesson #5: Some seasons in life doesn’t always feel comfortable; yet and still God will give you strength and grace to ride it out.

Journey Lesson #6: Always remember that seasons change. You will not remain in this same season of struggle. Get Ready for Your Season of Relief. I pray right now in the name of Jesus that you do not become weary as you wait for your season of relief to come. I pray your faith fails not. You will not lose your mind in this season of struggle. The peace of God keeps your mind and sustains you. I decree and declare you will LIVE to see the season of relief God has for you. In Jesus Name.

Journey Lesson #7: Don’t keep letting fear, worry and anxiety dominate your life. Feed and saturate yourself in the word of God. The word of God builds your faith. Fear locks you, but FAITH Loose you to Launch out.

Journey Lesson #8: Don’t let the anxiety produce in desperation cause you to make the wrong decision. Learning to be still, listen for God’s clear guidance. Trust God and not your anxiety because every door of opportunity that opens isn’t necessarily the direction God has in mind so listen carefully to His voice and sense His direction.

Journey Lesson #9: You may not always “feel” like it, but you must PRESS through anyway. Stay in the Press. It’s okay to have feelings, but don’t let your feelings stop your PRESS.

Journey Lesson #10: Going through a journey isn’t always comfortable. Learning that journeys have a purpose connected it. There are lessons to be learned and development that needs to be made. So, don’t fear the journey, embrace purpose in the journey.
