Seasons…

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
Isaiah 43:19

I love walking my dog on this route and she loves it too.  It is wonderful to see how nature changes as seasons pass and new ones begin. This picture was taken two days ago, and as I walked, I noticed that the summer colours had now made way for autumn.

 Nature has a way of speaking to us.

I noticed the birds, trees and sky. We have entered into a new wonderful season. Wonderful because its what we make of it.

We have to live in that moment that we find us in. The old has passed.

That’s why God says,

I am doing a new thing in your life but do you perceive it or you are still crying about the season that just passed?

For some, it has been a long summer filled with blue skies, birds chirping, great summer colours and a laid back.

Yet underneath the surface, a new life has been preparing to spring forth and change the course of our lives.

The enemy would have us think that a particular season will never end, but it does cause us to sink deeper into a stance of depression. However, the enemy does not have the final say in your situation, God does. He is causing us to walk in a new season and giving us a new fragrance, a new anointing.

Gather all the strength that you have left and try one more time. The one who promised sure is faithful.

It is a time to leave the shame, secrets, hurts, hang-ups, bad habits, resentment and guilt behind. They will not determine who you are, and they cannot determine what you become. Just shake them off!

God is already doing a new thing in your life. Embrace it and let the Holy Spirit lead you through every twist and turn, as he creates a river in the desert.
