It’s always a season of preparation.

It’s always a season of preparation.

S E A S O N S.

They come and they go. Some feel like eternity, while others seem to pass far too quickly.

Some are filled with rich celebration and lots of laughter, while others serve as a jar that collects our tears and awakens our hearts.

Some, we sacrifice our own desires, while others are fueled by our dreams.

Some are built through the embracing of new roles, while others are founded upon embracing the mundane and the monotonous.

But there are two very important things that I have come to learn about seasons:

1.) Each one shall pass in His timing.

2.) Every season contains the gift of preparation for the next.

I do not know what season you’re currently in or which one you’ve just come out of but I do know that you are being prepared and groomed for BIG things. I do know that there is much temptation to press rewind or fast forward because sometimes the greatest discipline is just being PRESENT in this season.

But that’s my prayer for you. That’s my prayer for me. That, in between all the crazy and all the pressure and all the expectations and all the madness, that we would be content.

As the leaves change around you, be reminded that His timing is sovereign and that within His grasp, He makes it all beautiful.

“He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.” -Daniel 2:21

“He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority.” -Acts 1:7

It required some changing of habits and some rearranging of my schedule. It...

Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.
Goodbye to guilt & receive His grace.

May 30, 2018

I used to believe that guilt was holy in a way. It showed that I knew what Jesus was asking of me in a moment or that I knew something I should’ve done or been, and I regretted not being/seeing/doing that. Maybe it’s guilt over not being the best daughter you can be. Or brother, wife, husband, friend, sister, etc. Maybe it’s those words you said about a coworker in the heat of the moment that you didn’t...

Speak them out loud.
Speak them out loud.

I remember sitting in a conference a couple years ago and the speaker said, “Tell yourself out loud! Speak it over yourself but give it volume!” And I’m thinking, “I have never done that, consistently at least.” I was also thinking, “Is that like a true difference-maker? The whole giving it volume, making sure your own ears hear it thing?” Well, joke’s on me because I have noticed, over the big and the small things, that when I...
