A New Season
A new season is beginning. I feel it. Do you ever just feel that way? That change is coming? That everything you've known for the last few months will no longer be? I suddenly feel as if the trials I experienced have prepared me for whats next. Today I felt God put on my heart: "You are prepared. You weren't ready before but now you are". I feel at peace in a way I hadn't before and I feel as if the last few months, the hardships, the pain, the tears, the work, it was worth it just to hear that I'm ready.
I wish I knew what I was ready for :) But I'm definitely celebrating this new season that will be coming. A new leaf has been turned over it seems. How fitting that spring is coming... Winter is ending, things are becoming new again. New meaning has been given to my life and breathing fresh air never felt so wonderful. God is always so faithful and His timing so perfect. I know this, yet I fight and I question. I am so grateful for His patience :)!
I wish I could describe this breakthrough in my life. I can say though, as soon as I gave up trying to make things go my way, the minute I allowed God to take control things began to change. When I mean change I don't mean this physical change, but more of an emotional & spiritual change that has in turn over flowed into my marriage, my parenting, my home, my relationships, my health, my business... Its the whole working on your heart, and how you are on the inside so that it then shows on the outside. BASICALLY: I can't do any of this on my own. I need to lean on God always. He's my strength.
