Maggy Sing a New Song
Hello, dear ones, I hope that all is well and that you are taking good care of yourself. I am not doing badly myself and I am grateful to be here.
I have gone missing for the last couple of weeks and this came after a series of issues I had to deal with which are now very much under control. I was on the verge of giving up on my writing, and I think the reason for this will be on my next post. You may wonder how or why am back here again and I am as surprised. I have found a new reason to continue with my journey as a writer and this happened a few nights ago.
I was going through some portion of the scripture and there an extraordinary conviction in my heart as I meditated on the word. The conviction came from Psalms 96:1, Sing to the Lord a new song; sing to the Lord, all the earth. NIV. This came as a wake-up call from sleep I had no idea I was in at all. It was a call to start over, first in my spiritual life and every other aspect of my life. This has been so profound in my heart that I am now left with no choice but to start again or at least start from where I left off, provided I am starting again with a new form of energy.
I am learning that it is possible to start again, no matter how hard the impact of my fall might have been. It is no longer one of the theorized Maggys thoughts but one that is now prepared to realize practically. Some of the areas I am investing a new surge of energy includes,
- Spiritually- I am cultivating a culture of prayer and communion with God. This is also happening as I read and meditate more on the Word of God.
- Emotionally- I am learning to analyze emotions and give the necessary attention to those that matter and ignoring the rest. Of course, this is proving to be a bit harder than I thought but I am positive that I will be able to handle issues more confidently.
- Physically- ha-ha, I have to admit that when it comes to resetting and starting over, physical health demands most of it.
Concisely I am trying to point out to you and me that it is possible and necessary to go back to the drawing board and if there are, things which need to change then so be it. Starting over is not as easy and most of the time it will require that we come out of some shell we may have grown comfortable in, but I believe that it becomes better to try than to stay there.
As Jennifer Elisabeth said,” Starting over can be the scariest thing in the entire world, whether it’s leaving a lover, a school, a team, a friend, or anything that feels like a core part of our identity. But when the gut is telling you that something here is not right or feels unsafe, I want you to listen and trust in that voice.
