Don’t Despise Small Beginnings

Have you ever heard the saying, “Don’t despise small beginnings”? Well, I’m currently in a season of new beginnings and starting over. Recently in my morning devotions, I felt like God was telling me not to despise these moments that I’m in and what I’m learning. Some people like to praise the big wins, yet they forget about all the little ones that took them to get there. I know for me personally, I have a hard time with new beginnings because it means change and change can be scary. I’m learning to not fear the unknown and instead embrace change because not all change is bad. Take Isaiah 43:19 for instance; God declares He is about to do a new thing, and sometimes I think we get to a place in our lives where we grow stale or become comfortable and tend to get stuck in a rut. When this happens to me, I’ve come to realize God will breathe a breath of fresh air upon me and my situation and transition me from one season of life into another. Have you experienced this also? God also states that when we receive Jesus we become a new person, we start anew. (According to 2 Cor. 5:17) So new beginnings don’t have to be bad, and we need to learn to embrace joy in the little moments just as much as we embrace the bigger ones. Are you currently or have you just experienced a change in your life, if so what have you learned? When you hear the word “new beginnings” what comes to mind? I would love to read your thoughts below in the comments, and if you haven’t done so already, make sure to subscribe to the blog so you will get a notification anytime I post a new article.
