The difference between transition and change is to change is moving into a whole new world you are not familiar with rather a transition is going in the same direction just a different path…. During the journey with Malachi I hit a very confusing time, Malachi has always been on the road of transitioning which then, of course, put me as a person in transition. Like any owner, you become married to your mission. Not to say I idolize Malachi but I did treat it as if it was apart of me. As I moved forward in another transition with Malachi I notice how much we have grown apart…This time transition produced change….Not change in Malachi but a change in me. Change that developed questions and these questions developed me. The one biggest question that motivated me for change was, I’m a really surrender to the destiny God has planned for me? or am I the God that is planning my destiny? During my journey of the many transitions I have had with Malachi I mastered the ability to display my faith.If anyone knows me, they know when it comes to Malachi I have tremendous faith.But one of the things I realized during this time of change, I had the faith of expectations of my own outcome rather than Gods, which is not faith at all. When I defined change as moving into a whole new world you are not familiar with, this is the faith I desired but was too afraid to live in. I believe God has used many road blocks to lead me to take this step of true faith. It’s scary and quiet confusing but it causes me to be on my knees almost all the time which is exactly the place I need to be…
Don’t freak out I’m not letting go of Malachi, I’m just letting God be God this time around. I’m excited because I feel refilled which allows me to pour out even more to you! Change only makes the fire go in a different direction.
Keep Pushing! -Garrett
1 Corinthians 3:13-15New International Version (NIV)
13 their work will be shown for what it is, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will test the quality of each person’s work. 14 If what has been built survives, the builder will receive a reward. 15 If it is burned up, the builder will suffer loss but yet will be saved—even though only as one escaping through the flames.
