There is a season – turn, turn, turn….

Leaves aren’t twirling downward and noses are nowhere on Jack Frost’s radar, but there is a new season quickly approaching—a new season of life, that is.

Remember this post? I can now share that the “step of faith” referred to was my resigning from teaching an amazing group of men and women at our church. The “perfect storm” referred to the combination of my increased desire to write and more importantly, my desire to be available for Piper, our granddaughter due in November.

Lessons learned:

  • God’s peace truly transcends all understanding. In this situation, He gave it to me instantaneously — no lingering doubts. Not one.
  • Some will understand. Some won’t. My responsibility is to follow what I believe the Lord is calling me to do and release the rest. His peace guards the heart and mind. (Phil. 4:7)
  • God can use one spiritual gift in a variety of ways. The gift of teaching is not being abandoned—He’s simply changing the venue.
  • God delights in our striking a healthy balance between serving Him and loving our families.

And finally…

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven…” Phil. 1:3

Everything.
