Human transformation is at the center of what aligns us with our highest potential. It is the heart of every major aspect of our lives, which affects our view and how we relate to others. Also, how we see ourselves in the world. Several factors can initiate transformation in our lives, but the one I will speak on it’s from a spiritual awakening. Therefore, I couldn’t address the subject without looking at the condemnation often experienced by some of us during the process.

Galatians 5:22-23 of the KJV Bible states, “The fruit of the spirit is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, (23) Meekness, temperance: against such, there is no law.”

Romans 12: 2 further tells us, “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” These are two of many Bible passages that deal with transformation.

Through the processes of life, transformation usually comes to us differently. Time and change dictated by God decide when and how some of us transformed. Those changes are pivotal to advancing a greater good beyond our norm and taking us to our highest potential. Those who have gone through what are extraordinary changes usually act as destiny helpers and world changers, such as Oprah Winfrey and many others across the spectrum like her.

 As we all know, the social level we were born into can influence or hinder one’s transformation. However, how we see ourselves to others can activate or suppresses those changes, but God has that final say. When we see ourselves through the eyes of God, barriers are stepping stones, and breakthroughs become realized, thrusting us into what we so yearned for, and the essence of the fruits of the spirit becomes a reality. Those fruits of love, joy, peace, and fullness of life are meant for us. Sometimes what it takes to arrive here is met with condemnation, but that shouldn’t be reason enough to abandon reaching our highest potential. The process could get messy for some of us, which causes misunderstanding leading to condemnation. We are apt to be revile when others don’t understand or pigeonhole us into what they expect of us, especially if they have already given up on their life. However, the path some of us have to take isn’t optional; it is the only way, and the desire to be transformed outweighs the negative reactions of others. One’s overall well-being shouldn’t be negotiable, therefore, embracing and initiating transformation honors God, and at the end of the day, what God thinks of us is of utmost importance. I pray this is the year of transformations that honors God, and we’ll live our best lives by being transformed! Have a blessed weekend! Peace!
