I am so thankful for the crazy season I am in...it has brought me to a greater devotion!! Different mindset, learning new ways/things, having faith, being strong when I could complain, and have greater love and patience! We are blessed and know things will fall in place! Hope this helps someone today as it touched my heart to share!
“To the skies heavy with blessing
Lift your eyes, offer your heart
Jesus Christ opened the heavens
Now we receive the Spirit of God.”
One of the most difficult places to live is between what God has done in the past and what you’re praying for God to do in the future. It’s the place that’s often referred to as the desert — the place of the dry spell and the drought. Maybe you’re there now.
When we find our self in this place, our eyes instinctively go to what we don’t have and what seems to be missing. Our focus goes to our frustration, instead of His faithfulness.
It doesn’t have to be this way, though. You have a choice in every season, even seasons of drought. You get to choose your perspective.
You get to decide if you will complain about what’s missing or call out to God to provide what’s needed.
You get to decide if you will see the dry ground as a cause for complaint or as the catalyst for crying out to God in complete dependence.
You get to decide if you will stare at the parched, dry ground or fix your eyes towards the skies heavy with blessing.
A season of drought can actually drive you to greater devotion. It can bring you to a place of asking God to “do it again.” To plead with God to come through in the ways that only he can. But it doesn’t happen naturally. It’s a choice — and the choice is yours.
