In order to experience a new season we must say good-bye to an old one… letting go of those things that keep us from moving forward. This time of year is filled with those types of changes. Schools are closing their doors for the summer.. people are planning their summer vacations.. classes are ending.. summer is approaching. New beginnings in Spring.. it seems fitting.
It is a great time to reflect and remember all that has happened. To see how far God has taken us. A winter season has drained us and now we look forward to a summer season of rest and refreshment. In this very busy world we need those times.. those days that are not filled with constant activity. Unscheduled time to reflect and pray and dream.
It is good to slow down.. to be quiet… to rest… to process the past.. to get in touch with your heart. God waits for us.. to reach out to Him.. to sit with Him.. to take walks with Him. He wants to fill up the empty places so we have more to give.. His desire is to show us the ways that He loves us.. to reveal His goodness to us.
Are you moving into a new season? What do you need right now? How is your heart? Is it tired, weary, and overworked? God wants to breathe new life into you.. I know it. He always wants to meet us right where we are to give us what we need to finish the race.
“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.”
