What things need to change inorder for there to be change? WHAT DOES IT LOOK LIKE TO BE THE CHANGE? Simply put, you model the change you wish to see in others and the world around you. What do I want to see change? I want to see hope restored, I want to see a rapid INCREASE in mental HEALTH – NOT THIS RAMPID DECREASE. I want to see joy spread faster than the rate of COVID. I want to see unity and peace restored, not only in our in government and in Churches, but I want to see it in our communities and families, between brother and sister, race and genders.
The list of change I want to see is exhaustive…. But Vahen, what can you do to change THAT? WHAT CAN ONE PERSON REALLY DO TO CHANGE THINGS THAT ARE NOT ONLY IN TINATIC SIZE PROPORTION, BUT GENERATIONALLY GROUNDED AND ROOTED IN HATE, DECEPTION AND LIES?
THAT’S A REALLY GOOD QUESTION, ONE THAT I HAVE WRESSTLED WITH FOR A VERY LONG TIME.
In todays Vlog, I will be sharing some of the things I wish to see change, but more importantly, I’ll share some things I have changed in me, to help change some things I wish to see change. I talk about prayer and endurance, two things I feel are vital in this season, and offer a few tips to help you, BE THE CHANGE you wish to see.
WHAT CHANGE DO YOU WANT TO SEE?
I am sure we can all list things we WANT to see changed, but have you considered what you could do to be apart of that change?
Please share your thoughts with me. I don’t believe I am the only one who’s had to fight to maintain their joy, or swallow pride or need for control to keep the peace. I am going to go out and a limb and take a wild guess, that I am not the only one who’s been struggling in this season. And because I am confident I am not the only one. I want you to know you will be hearing more about how I have changed and pivoted to help adapt to the increasing pressures of this season., to do my small part to BE THE CHANGE I wish to see.
And as I continue to do my part, I’ll also be offering more inspirational videos like this, but also additional recourses like workshops, both live and prerecorded on my YouTube channel, and here on my website, in hopes that it will also help you. Let’s change some things, so we can BE THE CHANGE!
Who’s with me?

Pace yourself. The work you are about will not happen by sprinting. You need to measure your gait so you can run and not grow weary. Stamina and endurance are key aspects you are developing, so you can not only run the race well, but FINISH it STRONG!
“I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion.” Phil.1:6
Trust God’s timing!
A SCRIPTURE TO KEEP CLOSE
“…let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up. And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” Hebrews 12:1
