NEW SEASON…NEW DAY…A SEASON TO BE BRAVE & COURAGEOUS
I am sitting at my desk, looking out the window and enjoying the sound of the rain as it pours down on the seeds that have lay dormant during the winter. In a month or so, they will bloom. Isn’t it amusing how each year we anticipate a new season as if we have never experienced its performance before? It’s as though this is the first curtain call and we are the audience awaiting this year’s new screen play. Yet, seasons come and go – and come and go – and come and go.
Here I am, over 60 and wondering as many of you, young and old…what in the world does this next season look like? I know the script has been written because God’s word says that our days are written in the Lamb’s book of life. (Rev. 3:15 & Ps. 139) My days are numbered and God has already written a great plan for me if I will follow His plan in obedience. Of course, if I deviate, things may change a bit but still God has a perfect plan for every season of my life. He is always at work.
Then, why this uncertainty? Why this feeling of emptiness? Many times when we are about to cross over into that next season of life, there is a sense of “I don’t belong here anymore,” or “I don’t have grace for this anymore.” Personally, I begin to feel a bit agitated and then I know, God is about to do something great. I am certain that Joshua, as he was about to cross into the promised land, experienced much of the same things we feel. But God kept saying to him, “Be strong and of good courage.” That is what I am saying to you, today, my friends. Be strong and be of good courage as your next season is about to bloom. It is raining and the ground is getting prepared for your cross over. When those “feelings come” just tell them to step down and leave you alone. You are about to enter into a new season…There may be a few giants to kill along the way so get out your sword (God’s Word) and stand strong in the power of HIS might and see the breakthrough begin.
Start looking for your breakthrough BRAVE ONES!
UPDATE: My husband and George are doing fantastic and we are currently entering into their 8th month since the transplant. Once again, thank you for all your support and prayers.
