Happy New Year! Of course, it’s not New Year’s Day to the world but it is to me!
Romans 12:2 reads, “Don’t become like the people of this world. Instead, change the way you think. Then you will always be able to determine what God really wants-what is good, pleasing, and perfect.'(GWT) I changed my mind! Prophet Karena Hadden Calhoun posted this on FB a few weeks and it spoke so loudly to what I was feeling, “Beware of MANY of these people coming to prophesy regarding your upcoming new year – new season. Many of you will not be in a new season just because it’s a new year. For many; your new year has already begun and for others, your new season will not begin because you have not faithfully completed your current/past season………”
How many of you are making plans for a “new” anything yet you’ve not completed what’s currently before you nor have you planned regarding what that “new” actually is? Are you one of those dreamers who thinks that just because it crossed your mind that it will manifest without action? This evenings discussion is designed to fuel a fire in you to change your mind, see the vision, write the vision and put the plan into action!
Everyone won’t understand or appreciate your newness and guess what, that’s a really good thing! BE EMPOWERED!
Hello, my name is Valerie Burrell, and I am your Life Coach. Typing that even felt a little funny, as I was speaking it out of my mouth as I was typing it. This is a defining moment in my life!!! For several years, I had struggled with understanding my purpose in the earth, expecting that who I am and what I was supposed to do looked just like Susie – yet I didn’t measure up. I had been driven by the instructions of others based on thier need of me and was miserable. I have a relationship with Christ yet I hadn’t made him Lord over my life, nor was I relying on the Holy Spirit for guidance. I was just going with the flow, accepting most of what people shared with me concerning my life and was stagnant and unproducive.
Today, my husband and I are launching out, striking while it’s hot, moving forward in the work that has been assigned to us on the earth. Today, we are the moving vessel called The Empowerment Place! You might say to yourself, “Valerie, you’ve been doing this for a few years now – what’s defferent and defining about this moment?” Good question! For the past two years, I have been studying. Studying the Word of God, completing my Master’s degree and becoming a Certified Christian Counselor. I have poured into myself according to what the Holy Spirit was speaking to prepare me for this moment. I am fully engaged in my purpose – that’s the defining moment! For many of us, we go through the motions, we claim that we know who we are and what we’re supposed to do, yet we make no movement towards fulfillment of purpose.
Today, would you be brave enough to put fear, guilt, shame, unforgiveness or whatever it is that has held you captive – and start your journey on PURPOSE? I was reminded last week that life isn’t supposed to be hard, it gets that way when we try to navigate our situations instead of relying on the one that was sent to comfort and guide us. Benny and I are strategically BECOMING all that God has intended we be and it begins today. My friends, move forward in what God has called you to. Fulfill your purpose! Aim high! Win!! Be Empowered! #E2EO
