To every thing there is a season,
and a time to every purpose under the heaven. (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
The one thing I have learned to really focus in on in my life when it comes to my faith, is to listen to God.
Let nothing be seen as coincidence, but really and truly believe it was Him.
I have mentioned before that I believe there is a spiritual and physical timeline of things.
For me, it is revealed through Bible verses that I believe God speaks to my heart.
This has happened five times since this time last year.
Of course I am never sure exactly what He is going to do, but I really put weight on it, that something will happen after the time it is revealed.
Ephesians 3:20-21 led me on my journey to Savannah…Deuteronomy 29:29 was the confirmation to move back to FL…Jeremiah 29:11 moved me into ministry in the church and now Ecclesiastes 3:1 has revealed to me that now I am about to start into another season.
I am not quite sure what this season will hold. So far I have noticed that the contacts I had while I was in Savannah, I hardly have even brief conversation with. I don’t mean those people just in Savannah, because I do talk to a few there. I mean even within the social networking aspect.
I have friends from all over the country that I would talk to weekly, and now they don’t even come to mind.
I know that might sound horrible, but I am learning that God has certain people for certain seasons of our life.
My strongest mentors in my life I have realized are not apart of this season either, and that’s a scary thing.
I remember a message Beth Moore did on this particular thing, and I didn’t know I would ever say it would happen in my own life.
” You are going to enter into a place where those three cannot go with you.”
I can honestly tell you that I would have never thought moving back home would be a place the most unfamiliar to me.
I mean I don’t mean the natural things. Such as new roads…though there are plenty new ones. I don’t mean new people either, though I do have a new job.
I do have a new Pastor at my church, but its the same church I’ve gone to for 13 years of my life.
So what’s so different? I really don’t have an answer.
I think the spiritual timeline reflects everything that I am feeling, but don’t know what is happening around me.
In any effect, there are seasons in our lives….
we go in and out of them, but it is through them,
we find God’s purpose for our lives.
