Do You Need to Pivot?

“Pivot” has become a popular word lately and often our only choice when life leaves us no other choice.

Problems pop up, storms sweep in and seasons change for all of us. 

Pivoting propels us forward when we’re on the verge of paralysis by analysis, overthinking, worried or afraid.

Feeding five thousand was a problem.  Christ pivoted turning five loaves and two fish into 12 baskets of leftovers, one for each disciple to keep as a souvenir of what they just witnessed.

Ruth losing her husband was painful. God pivoted her turning her past pain into present joy with a beautiful new marriage and becoming the mother to Obed, David’s grandfather.

Problems are pivots in disguise.

Prime opportunities to take back your power, find your voice,  build your confidence and be reminded of your value and what you bring to the table.

Lost jobs pivot into new entrepreneurs. Setbacks pivot into comebacks.

Breakdowns pivot into breakthroughs.  Messes pivot into messages. Bad breakups pivot into new beginnings.

Pivoting requires energy, grace, strength, endurance and wisdom. All available for the asking through prayer. 

Pivoting is faith in action.  It’s stepping out of the boat even though you’re terrified. It’s acknowledging your fear but refusing to let it be a factor.  

Don’t like your weight? Pivot. Sick and tired of being sick and tired?  Pivot.

Over the chaos and clutter in your surroundings? Pivot.   Done with debt? Pivot. Fed up with fake friends or toxic relationships? Pivot.

Tired of staying stuck in your past or on the couch of complacency? Pivot.

Simply Stated – Pray then pivot on purpose with purpose.

    So on target! Joyce Meyer’s word on get out the boat changed my life. A girl just has to do it sometimes and Jesus will hold my hand. And yours, too.
