Embrace the new season God has blessed you with!
Sometimes when we’ve been in a painful season it can be difficult to embrace the new season of healing and restoration that God has ushered us into. It can be scary to trust our new reality because we fear getting our hopes up will lead to greater disappointment and pain.
We are already adjusted to the pain we experienced before and we don’t want to open ourselves up to a new onset of it. But God does not want us to be consumed by hopelessness😔, fear😳, depression😞and anxiety😧. He does not want us to be in a constant state of waiting for the other shoe to drop.
When God gives us beauty🦋 for our ashes he wants us to embrace, enjoy and be grateful for it!
We have to fight the fight of faith and ask for God’s help in viewing our season with a fresh set of hopeful, light-filled& optimistic eyes. The old season and pain may have clouded our perception. But God is faithful to shine light in the darkness. God understands our hesitancy to believe we are in a new season. Thankfully God is faithful to hold our hand during our process of growing in our trust of him and what he is doing.
Father God thank you for my new season. Thank you for turning my weeping into joy. Your word says, “Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy” – Psalm 126:5. Thank you for the wisdom you imparted unto me during my old season. Please help me to use the new wisdom you gave me to help others. Let the pain of the past be a tool of ministry and a weapon against the enemy’s kingdom. Please help me to perceive my new season the way you do God with joy, excitement and hopeful expectation. Help me to trust you and what you are doing more and more. I love you and I thank you and it is in Jesus name that I pray Amen!
