I'm not sure how it happens, but I end up getting a "second wind" around 1:00 am every once in a while. I think it's because currently my Tuesdays-Thursdays are occupied for a few hours in the middle of the day? Or maybe it's the venti hot chocolate I had at Starbucks? And to think I had just started to get into the flow of my new "schedule".
I'm up at 1:00 in the morning because I kind of have something stirring in my soul that I felt the need to share. Do you ever get those feelings? Like in the movie Mean Girls when Lindsay Lohan's character, Cady, thinks she has word vomit but it's actually real vomit? Too much? Sorry. But I've got this stirring inside of me to talk to you all about The Lord. Not in a scary or creepy way. But more like a confetti push pop way. Like, I'm almost about to explode. And I think it's because I finally understand a little bit more about my walk with Christ. So here it goes.
We all go through different seasons in our lives. Plentiful seasons, calm seasons, dark seasons, dry seasons, etc. But these seasons that we go through ultimately help shape us. For example, I would initially have categorized my season as a dry season. I'm out of work, I have no love/social life, and I have absolutely no definitive idea as to what my next move in life will be. That's how I initially looked at it. But now, I look at it completely different. It's a growing season for me. The Lord has me in the right place at the right time for the right reason! He's given me the opportunity to grow more independent, self-sufficient (to an extent), more self aware and most importantly-- more aware of Him.
And each day, my heart and soul swell at the thought of knowing that He placed me in my growing season right now (although I do have those days where I say, "why am I still here?"). In my walk with Christ, I'm learning that it's all about making [the right ] choices and choosing to be obedient in His word. Instead of falling into the whiny baby pit, asking why I'm not off in a big city living it up, I have to remind myself that the Lord has plans for me.... to prosper! (Jeremiah 29:11). I have to remind myself that I am a daughter of The Most High (John 1:12)! At times it can definitely be a struggle, but I'm learning that it takes time, prayer, and understanding to make the right choice. It takes true grit and self-discipline to be obedient. But to know that because I choose to love and serve my Savior in obedience, I know that in His perfect timing I will be right where He's planned for me to be.
So continue to work through your seasons my loves! You'll move into your next one before you know it!
