It’s official! I’m starting a new season today.
I’ve blogged every week here on the weekends for the last 2 years. I’ve been leading children’s church with Josh and this experience has brought growth, encouragement, insight, and many inspiring relationships into my life, all of which have been life-changing and absolutely unforgettable. But as we all know, seasons come and seasons go and this season has come to an end. God is bringing me to a fresh, new chapter in my life where I will focus on career goals, family life and making myself available to where God wants to position me in ministry by clearing out my schedule of all other activities.
God is about to move big here and I am ready! I’m ready for His power to overtake me as I stand in awe of His greatness. All I have to do is take the step of faith that He has given me, all YOU have to do is take that step of faith that He has given you and He will take care of the rest. It’s amazing, when I first spoke out that I was moving a year ago, God has handled every detail since. He is lining up the perfect roommate for my son and I, which church we should go to, my career path, It is all falling perfectly together. Not because I have done anything right, but because He is doing everything all right. All I had to do is make myself available to His blessings.
This reminds me of when I first moved to Sulphur Springs and what a breakthrough I experienced. In Dallas I was a party-a-holic, my life was a mess, I was in a downward spiral. I didn’t experience breakthrough until I let go. I made myself available to what God wanted to do in my life and breakthrough was the result. Well I am believing in yet another breakthrough! A new season is in order!
Are you believing in breakthrough? Where is God calling you right now? GO! Take that first step and watch doors open for you.
