Took some time out to reflect over the past couple of months and I am amazed at the way things have been going so fast. All the things (that seemed unclear or unnecessary) are beginning to fall into pleasant places.
5 Lord, you alone are my portion and my cup;
you make my lot secure.
6 The boundary lines have fallen for me in pleasant places;
surely I have a delightful inheritance.
Psalm 16:5-6New International Version (NIV)
I’m right bang in the middle of a season of unveiling.
The very things in my life that have made no sense for decades, are finally revealing themselves to be an extremely important necessity for His purpose in me. Yes, we must learn to never despise these humble beginnings.
10 Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in Zerubbabel’s hand.”
Zechariah 4:10New Living Translation (NLT)
Sometimes when you think that it’s time to hang up your boots and gracefully exit; you might actually be getting ready to start the real journey. Experience cannot be gained overnight.
It takes time, to be schooled in the School of Life.
When it came to my calling, I thought that I’d done the majority of what I was supposed to do; but I was very wrong.
I thought that it was time for me to pass on knowledge; nurture and mentor the young; helping them to find their way to do even better things than I had ever dreamed of achieving. Yet I found that this was not my only charge, but there was so much more to do.
I didn’t know that I had any more to give, and yet I find myself full to the brim and overflowing.
I thought that I had served God wholeheartedly with my youth and now it was time to slow down.
So why does it feel like this is only the beginning of the real journey? Why does every experience I’ve ever encountered only begin to make sense now? Why does it feel that this is the season that God has been preparing me for all along?
If your life doesn’t make much sense right now; you just wait until it does…
