Day 305..#Make Me New..
#There is a sweet anointing in this sanctuary..
There is a stillness in the atmosphere
Come and lay down the burdens you have carried,
Since being back from Portugal, staying at home for a while, then being thrown back into Uni and life away from my parents again but back into a sense of “familiarity”, I have felt a bit off-balance these last 4 (or so) weeks.
I’ve felt lost.
I felt lost and disconnected from a world I was once so much a part of.
I began to isolate myself from things and people..acknowledging that I couldn’t expect things to remain the same after I had been away for 14.5 months..yet at the same time, I expected just that.
“Things couldn’t be the same.” I told myself..Logic told me too..but again I found myself having to adapt to an old environment in a new season..
#It’s a new season, it’s a new day,
A fresh anointing is flowing my way,
It’s a season of power and prosperity,
It’s a new season, coming to me..#
(Israel & New Breed – New Season)
During various times of the day, most of these songs just come to me.
What I’ve learnt is, that when they do..God is usually trying to tell me something.
We talk; God and I, but He knows I’m more musically inclined, so a lot of the time, He’ll talk to me through song..
I’m not lost.
I found I was yearning for things of time past when I should have been reaching out to take a handle on what is coming ahead in my life.
I was stuck on pause and pressing rewind..playing the things I had left behind..instead of just letting things be.
I’m starting a new season in my life..a new season where I feel like right now, I am armed and dangerous..with God’s word..
It always starts bumpy, because even though you say yes, “God use me, I am ready and adaptable to change!” when He actually starts doing so we tend to want to stick to our old ways..
But no more..
I’m in that new season..and I’m ready..
“Old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new..” (2 Corinthians 5:17)
