Who Gives Kudos:



The Season of Three "RE's"

Wishing I could hit a rewind button.  Unfortunately life does not offer me a "rewind".  Wouldn't it be nice.  I can think of a million things that I would welcome a "do-over".  Last months haircut is one of them!

I have a list of things that I would like to take back and start over from the beginning.  I am sure that you have a list of your own.  To live a life with no regrets.  Oh, how marvelous, Oh, how wonderful...wouldn't that just be!  But here, we as believers get to inject a huge dose of God's infinite grace into the picture.  I am so thankful that I understand and embrace the forgiveness and the grace of my Lord.  I can not imagine breath for an hour without it.  Grace for me is as essential as IS my necessity.  Because I am imperfect, because I can not rewind...I rely on His marvelous Grace.  Just thinking about it makes my heart sing...I hear a hallelujah shout welling up in my heart.

As the new year approaches I am seeking the things that the Lord has for me, for my family in this next chapter.  Though I can not hit a rewind, I can do three of my favorite "RE's"....

I am anxious for a season of refreshment.  I need a fresh wave of His undying Spirit to move over me.  I  need His love to soften the edges of my heart that have grown brittle.  I need His refreshing rain to cleanse me of my filth and make me clean.  Thankful for a new year...a fresh start, full of His grace, love and guidance.

While I refuse to dwell on the things of the past I press in to learn from the things of my past.  History is good, to ignore it is to pretend to be blind.  My history is mine to take ownership of, to see where I have failed, celebrate where I have triumphed and to give honor to my Lord for seeing me through the journey.  Learn from the past, reflect on the journey and continue to press on to the high calling...the only way we can move forward to know where we have been.

This is my favorite of the three "RE's"!   What joy there is in seeking the Lord and earnestly asking what would He have us focus our hearts on this new season.  To trust him to guide us into paths where we can be about His work.  In seasons past our focus has been on what we call "sending", we have been focused on raising our first and only child in the ways of the Lord, but I feel a new season calling us.  A fresh wind.  A shifting.  We are expecting great things and excited to see what the Lord has for us to learn from Him in 2012. 

I joke about wishing for a rewind button, but in reality the only do-over I would do-over is last months haircut!  In every triumph and in every mistake there is a lesson.  It is such a blessing to live and to know that His GRACE is sufficient!

My prayers are that the year 2012 will bring a season of "FRESH" into our lives...that GRACE will flood our souls and PEACE will envelope our homes! 

"For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.  Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), finding out what is acceptable to the Lord." 
     ~Ephesians 5:8-10 NKJV

Reserve your sleep for refreshing renewal.
Settle matters at least in your own heart before you close your eyes
so that the Holy Spirit might speak to you in the night watches.
