Turning the Page

Are you in a season where it feels hard to see past what is happening right now? You feel stuck in what could be and what is. Your faith tells you that there is more, but life’s circumstances say otherwise. Your thoughts are dominating your spirit. When we experience uncertainty and unpredictability around us, God will show up with His grace. God sees exactly how you feel. He knows you are torn between your heart and mind. Though this season feels incomplete and undone, God is reaching down and renewing this chapter for you. You have wrestled with some much doubt and regret. You have fixated all of your energy and focus on the situations surrounding you. God is gently picking up your broken pieces and is helping you to turn the page. This chapter has been read through and through. Your spirit has become tired in this season. Sometimes, all that is left to do is to turn the page.

Turning the page shows that you are still fighting—that there is more left to do. Even though this new page is now empty, it is only blank to our eyes. In God’s eyes, His promises are written endlessly all through this new chapter. In turning the page, you cannot bring the text and content of what happened before onto the next page. You will have reminders that will show up in this chapter, but nothing that has already been written before can appear again. There may be situations that will mirror some moments in your life, but there is a uniqueness to every chapter of your story. No two chapters and pages will be alike. That is how much God cares about you. Even though you may feel unfinished, turn the page. No matter what transpires from this moment, keep turning the page. Nevertheless, the small pieces that you feel are irrelevant, are still part of your story. God uses each and every single detail of your life. Your life has so much meaning to God. You have to continually turn the page in order to actualize everything that God has placed in you.

In this season, things may feel unsettling and even purposeless. You can ask God to help you turn the page in your life. Continuously seek after Him. Maybe you just need to witness another chapter. Over analyzing and overthinking about what is on the current page will cause stagnancy and fear. These thoughts and feelings can no longer consume you. By turning the page, you are giving God the opportunity to vindicate what was lost in the previous chapters. The page you are on is done. You do not need to go back and review anything. You can only move forward with God. You cannot change what is on the page. You can have faith that what is happening now and what is on future pages, will be better than what has already been turned over. Fresh anointing and overflow will find you within your story. Keep turning the page—there is so much more to unfold.

“See, I will create new heavens and a new earth.
The former things will not be remembered,
nor will they come to mind.” -Isaiah 65:17

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” -Isaiah 43:18-19

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” -Jeremiah 29:11
