It's A New Season
 
Many times in our lifetime we have a new season.  There have been times in my life that I experienced the new season without even knowing it.  There has been times that I literally did not know where I was at.  Yes, I knew the physical place, but I did not know the state of mind I was in.  I did not understand why I was in this state once again.  I did not know how long it would last this time.  But the one thing I did know is that this day too shall pass.
 
I am one to believe that everything happens for a reason.  There is a lesson to learn in everything we do.  If I do not learn the lesson, I opt to be tested again.  I do believe we are tested and we must pass the test to move on.  In this season of my life I have submitted to a new mind set.  I have no reason to take the test over and over again.  Some things are learning experiences but once we learn then it is time to do what you know to be the right  thing.  You can't go wrong doing right.  When we think of change many of us don't want it even though we know we need it.  Why is that?  Many of us fear the unknown and we do not want to fail.  So often we have been doing things the same way for so long we do not want to try to do things a different way.  Did you ever think that doing something a different way that maybe its an easier way to do it than you have been doing it?  We want to do things  the same way and expect a different result.  In the life of recovery, we call it insanity.  
 
I don't want to be like the Israelites, taking 40 years for a three day trip.   I have been hardheaded, and I have been at a point in my life where I wanted what I wanted, when I wanted it, how I wanted it, and I would do what ever it took to get it.  Guess what?  I got some crazy results and I had some crazy consequences that came from that crazy thinking.  That was a very selfish time in my life.  I really thought I had it going on and now I know that kind of thinking will get you no where  but in trouble.  I thank God that it is behind me now.  It has come a time in my life when all I desire to do is give God glory for my life.  I am so grateful that we serve a God of a second chance.  I realize that my life is not about me.  It is truly about helping someone else today.  When you been like I once was, tore up from the floor up, I have a strong desire to see God's people whole.  My desire is to see God's people healed, delivered and set free at all cost.
 
I celebrated my birthday today.  I thank God for saving me.  I know today it saved my life.  I thanked Him as I awoke this morning, not hung over, remembering what I did last night, and excited to enjoy my day.  As I think about what is before me today, I thank God for this new season in my life.  I can remember when I had this long list of material things I wanted, but the list this year does not have a financial cost.  My desire is to be more loving, more kind, have more peace.  I pray for more wisdom and discernment.  I pray to experience the power of God.  I pray for God to stir up the gifts in me,  I pray to be in the will of God.  I pray for his favor.  I pray for doors to open that no man can shut.  I pray for health and strength.  I pray for continuous healing, deliverance and restoring where needed.  I pray for God to meet me at my point of need.  I pray the same thing for each person reading this, in the name of Jesus.  I pray to be a better mother, sister, daughter,  and friend.  I pray to be a better person.  Thank you God for another year of life!  
 
But seek ye first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.  Matthew 6:33
