LeToya Luckett-Walker Wants You To Allow God To Stretch You Into Your Purpose

The only thing constant in life is change.

The only thing constant in life is change.

Some changes, like landing your dream job or closing on a new home, are easier to flow with than others. By "others," I mean divorce, getting laid off, having to relocate, or any of the other miscellaneous BS that can happen within a 24-hour day. Going with the flow of life's difficulties isn't exactly easy, but according to LeToya Luckett-Walker, these life changes are a vital part of the journey towards your purpose.

The singer and actress recently took to Instagram to reveal how the unforeseen challenges that she's faced in her life have often prompted some serious growing pains. LeToya took the opportunity to remind us all that the discomfort is only temporary. She said:

"I was sitting here thinking about change today. And for a lot of us, change can be super scary. I, for one, have had a lot change in my life in the last year and a half, and whew it has not been easy."
"But because it would take me doing some stretching on my part, that's where the fear came in, and I am here to tell you right now that there's nothing wrong with stretching...Especially in this time of my life where I am physically stretching, and I might not love how I look all the time, but I know it's for my good. So stretch."

A lot of the times we are so focused on what we want, that when we are faced with a detour, we can become crippled by fear. LeToya reminds us that when we live in the pursuit of our purpose, we will often encounter tragedy or hardship along the way. Although during those times we may become discouraged, we can't get comfortable in our complacency. She said:

"We all came into this world, God brought us in this world, to fulfill a purpose and I don't think he wants us to get complacent and comfortable in our little box to where we are so afraid to think outside of our comfort zone."

The Greenleaf star says that leaving your comfort zone may also require growing out of certain relationships, and that's OK. LeToya said that the key to mastering peace is knowing that all things work for your good. She says:

"Find peace in change. Find joy in it. And understand that everybody around you might not understand it, they might not like it, but that's what comes with growth."
"And sometime you grow out of those relationships, you grow out of your old ways...Keep stretching, keep learning. I learn something different about myself every single day, and I love it. Be proud when you conquer fear."

When we move past fear, we move closer to our destiny. When faced with the roller coaster of life, we have to learn to not only control the controllable, but to embrace the changes that are necessary in order to usher in the things we've prayed for.

Prayer, manifestation, or whatever you choose to call it, is real. But if we stop when we get uncomfortable, it will be almost impossible to actualize our deepest desires. So, like LeToya says: keep stretching! The stretching lets you know that you are on the right path.
