What changes are happening in your life?

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven” Ecclesiastes 3:1

As I sat in the doctor’s office, I shared with the endocrinologist how I’ve been feeling lately. “I want you to check my hormone levels, they’ve been all over the place,” I told him. Since I’ve reached 40, things are changing, my body is changing, I am changing. Thank God my Mom went through it gracefully. My aunts…well, they went through it but it wasn’t a pretty sight, and here I am experiencing symptoms of early menopause and determined to have the same results as my mother. I believe we can go through change gracefully. We don’t have to lose our minds, lose our husbands, fight with our children and lose our friends just because we are changing. We can become informed and care for ourselves. We can tell those that loves us, “Hey, I’m going through a change, and I need your understanding and support.” My ovaries have been wonderful to me, as my doctor put it. I’ve been blessed with six children, but now my body is saying, Kesha, it’s time to go on to the next phase of your life, and although it’s not easy, I welcome it. Change doesn’t wait for our permission. It doesn’t knock on our door and wait outside for us to open up to it. It happens. My sister, it happens and is a part of life. Whether you are experiencing physical changes, relational changes, or economical changes, I want you to know your Father God is holding your hand and He is guiding you through it.

What changes are happening in your life? How have you been handling it?

Prayer: Father, thank you for speaking to my heart. Change is a part of life. Help me to embrace it. Hold my hand and help me through it. I want to go through every change, and every transition, gracefully, but I can only do that with your help. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

  1. Thank you for this. I have been going through a lot of changes in the last 3 years of my life. I have had a divorce, my kids living in 3 different places, a move over the ocean back to the mainland, remarriage, new job and 3 different roles within that job. SA get older I notice I’m having a harder time with chage. So I really needed this devotional to day.
    Thank you very much! I thank God for the anointing on your life and how much I look forward to reading these every morning.

    1. Amen, I need to go deeper into myself to weed out the junk & create space for all tha is Godly..Amen Ty Jesus, Jehovah Jyra !!!!

  2. Thank you for sharing your changes and your challenges. Thank you for your transparency and for being authentic. I continually pray for your peace, strength and victory.

    Your devotions have been a blessing throughout the past few years. However, there is such a new tone of intimacy between you and your readers because of your transparency throughout these challenging times.

    It has made me see that even in imperfect situations- emotionally, psychologically, spiritually- that God can use us to be a blessing to others. We just have to keep our minds stayed on Him, hunger and thirst after Him, and He will give us the strength to walk through the fire.

    Changes in my job and changes in my relationship with my youngest who is currently going through a period of rebellion and backsliding have been challenging. As well, changes in ministry have beenchallenging.

    Through the ups and downs, God has been keeping me; changing and shaping me, and I give Him all the glory.

  4. Thank You for your honesty. I am learning to adjust more quickly to change now, than I did in the past. I remind myself that I must stay in my “peace zone”” regardless of what is happening around me. God bless you

  5. Wow…
    This is perfect timing! I was just pondering and repenting for my loose lips and my actions of frustration and irritation. I am 44 and the hot flashes and emotions have come in like a wave.
    It is beautiful how Holy Spirit has reminded me that I am adorned with an ornament of grace.
    I pray we receive all the changes in every area of our lives with His hand leading us.

    Thank you

  10. I think I need to see one of those I go crazy always before my periods. It’s been going on for years. I just turned 41 in May. Amen to the word. πŸ™ŒπŸΏ

  11. Thank you sister Keisha for this word today. Even with the various changes in my life. I am praising my heavenly Father for His transforming change in me. His promises are steadfast. He is our Rock and defender. Throughout this turbulent season, He’s with me. I am trusting in His abiding Love today. Please pray for me, as I pray for all my sisters. πŸ’˜ and God”s mercy.

  12. Thank you so much for sharing. The changes I am currently experiencing today is the affects of the pandemic.

    Also, just having to let go of my past. As I see and evaluate situations, circumstances, surroundings, people and even myself through the eyes of truth, I know change must happen.

    I’m reaching forward to what is ahead leaving all that is behind. For Your Glory, Lord. In Jesus’ name.

    Thank you again, Sis. Kesha.

    Blessings, Shalom and Agape.

  13. Wow! I’m blown away right now.
    Thank you so very much, Sister for sharing this.

    I’m 42 and 2 weeks ago I finally had it. Made an apt to get my hormones tested as I’ve been gaining so much weight in my belly…suddenly. Yet, still eating clean and always working out.
    I lost an every at 12 years old so thought there may be an issue there, as I’m aging.
    Had my follow up yesterday and my blood work showed I have the testosterone level of a 75 year old woman. Again, I’m 42. Healthy. Work out and eat clean. Who knew these hormones play SUCH a significant role in our aging and well being.

    I can not tell you what incredible timing your message is. Christ at work once again. I’m blown away as I’ve NEVER spoken or looked into this issue until getting blood work done 2 weeks and getting my results YESTERDAY. The SAME day you wrote about this.
    Thank you Kesha for bringing light for us, Ladies.
    It is such a real thing.
    God bless you and this incredible ministry where so many of us like minds can find comfort with one another.

  14. Thank you Kesha for this. I thought I was the only one going through this alone. I just turned 40 in January but my changes came in early. I found myself to worry more, irritable and crying as if the world was crushing down and super sensitive.
    In the last 3 years I have experienced my second divorce, heart ache, emotional breakdowns, mental breakdowns, letting go of my son to become a young man, not babying him anymore, a new job, disappointed in men, realizations that my Father will not look for me, I have to always make the effort. I had to learn to let go of my past, learn self love again through Christ. But through all this I have had the honor to share God’s love with my mother. He gives me the strength to Keep on going everyday. I’m learning real forgiveness, self love, Mental and emotional control fully depending on him, financial freedom, and having hope to have a blessed marriage one day.
    Sisters, we are not alone. Let’s keep each other in prayer and to groe old gracefully with our Father by our side. πŸ’•

  15. Wow! Just Wow!!!! The topic of perimenopause is so vague. I, too am going through the first wave of approaching menopause. My symptoms flared up recently and I was praying about wisdom and grace to accept what is happening. I asked God to show me how to navigate through this so that I can be an example to my sister’s in Christ as this is not talked about amongst kingdom women so candidly. Thank you Kesha, for your transparency. This was so needed for me and I receive this very unique and God-breathed word! May God continue to use you as a torchbearer. In Jesus’s name!
