Everything has a Beginning and a Ending
It's ok to start over, It's ok to shift to something New, It's ok that you're not comfortable, It's ok they're not coming with you, It's ok that you're leaving people behind, It's ok to be emotional, It's ok that you don't know what to expect, It's ok if GOD is in it. Be obedient to His Word and allow GOD TO lead you.
Why New Beginnings? I'm glad you asked. Today is my last day at AON..and I will start a new beginning with FIDELITY. All the emotions are starting to come.But then the Holy Spirit reminded me its ok to start something New because I am with you. It's time for you to sit in the passenger seat and give me the stirring wheel, Says GOD.
Revelation for so many years I wanted to know the out come of every decision I made no matter what it was because I had Fear, scared of the unknown.BUT GOD has taken that away and Healed me. His love is unconditional and He wants to take you places you've never been before (It's beyond your imagination, you have to build your own relationship with Him and He will reveal the plans he has for YOU. Not your neighbor but you
Side Note: Many of you focus on your neighbor and fail to realize GOD has a awesome plan for YOU.

He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord , He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust. Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence. He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler. Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day; Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday. A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee. Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked. Because thou hast made the Lord , which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation; There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling. For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone. Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet. Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name. He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him. With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

So Abram departed, as the Lord had spoken unto him; and Lot went with him: and Abram was seventy and five years old when he departed out of Haran. And Abram took Sarai his wife, and Lot his brother's son, and all their substance that they had gathered, and the souls that they had gotten in Haran; and they went forth to go into the land of Canaan; and into the land of Canaan they came. And Abram passed through the land unto the place of Shechem, unto the plain of Moreh. And the Canaanite was then in the land. And the Lord appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the Lord , who appeared unto him. And he removed from thence unto a mountain on the east of Beth–el, and pitched his tent, having Beth–el on the west, and Ai on the east: and there he builded an altar unto the Lord , and called upon the name of the Lord . And Abram journeyed, going on still toward the south.
