I am so incredibly grateful for seasons. Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer, but also for spiritual seasons. This has been quite a year for me so far spiritually. The year was kicked off with what I would consider a rough blindside of misfortune. I seemed to face some new trial and crisis consistently every week....no exaggeration. It felt as though the waves of obsticles would not let up, but I was reminded that there would be a new season around the corner. There was and it happened to coincide with the beginning of the Summer season.
Looking back at all I went through, I can see how deeply dependent I had to be to trust the Lord. Trust never seems to be a real issue in certain areas of our lives, but when we really set our heart on something, that trust becomes a little more vulnerable to attack. I feel as though I went through an intense season of discipline in re-learning to trust the Lord. It has been the very foundation the Lord has been buliding from since.
I am in a really exciting place in my walk with the Lord. I have been so fortunate to have a lot of time to dedicate to spiritual growth this Summer and have not been wasting a bit of it. I feel refreshed and renewed. His will has been becoming more and more clear for the upcoming year. Though I am excited for what is on the horizon, I am soaking up every minute of the present.
