Ready for a bombshell??
Good! Because I have one for you today!
Either by choice or by circumstance, we will ALL encounter new beginnings — whether we like it or not! No matter where we are from. No matter what we do. No matter how different we may seem on paper, no one is exempt from encountering new beginnings.
Quite the statement to start off this Tuesday morning, isn’t it?
So what comes to mind for you when you begin to think about new beginnings?
Do you long for the hope that an opportunity to start over provides? Or does the idea of beginning again rock you to your core and you just don’t think you have it in you?
To be honest, I’ve experienced both extremes. There have been times in my life where I welcomed a new beginning with open arms. And then, there have been times where I have dragged my feet crossing into a new season rather than embrace what was ahead.
Change is hard, friends! New seasons can bring about difficult transitions. And growth? Well, that one doesn’t come without growing pains!
But! My guest today, Zim Flores, has some insights for us today on specifically this topic.
You can trust God through painful endings and new beginnings.
That is some welcomed good news for my ears! And, I hope for yours too!
You see, Zim knows a thing or two about change, letting go, and starting over. The daughter of Nigerian immigrants, Zim was uprooted from her community as a young girl, marking the beginning of her quest for true identity.
Since then she has experienced tremendous success being named a Forbes “30 under 30”, a leader by Oprah Winfrey, and a serial entrepreneur.
But, don’t let those accolades fool you. Her success did not come without hardship, pain, difficult choices, and ultimately trusting the plan that God has for her!
