A New Beginning...
My new beginning starts in this season. Feelings of faith being built up for a purpose flow through my spirit. Taking steps of faith without regard to the onslaught of forces that will be aligned against me is a new confidence level.
I waited patiently for the Lord; He turned to me and heard my cry. He lifted me out of the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn to praise our God. Many will see and fear the Lord and put their trust in Him. ~ Psalm 40:1-3
Moving forward with action on the mission that God has called me to seems easy now. The things I do are natural and fit my personality. It seems as if I have been set free to serve without restraint. The feeling is that I do what God has told me to do for others and He takes care of me. I don't have to take care of myself... God is doing that while I invest my energy and strength in fulfilling my mission.
This way as I follow Christ and serve the Kingdom of God I notice all along the way the things that are happening to me. These things are God taking care of me. He speaks to me and tells me "I allowed that..... I love you!"
My time is limited and I want to glow for God. I enjoy experiencing others being blessed by something I did. It becomes easier by the day and a much more natural way of living.
Trusting God and fulfilling your destiny go hand in hand. God is faithful when we trust Him. This is a habit; it requires effort and focus. Daily study and meditation help a person move forward. Each successive day gets easier and the fruit multiplies.
Pain and disappointment are constant reminders of how renewal starts fresh every day and all things are working for my good because I love God and am called according to His purpose.
