“This season doesn’t look anything like I expected.” Homeschooling three high schoolers and raising an infant was never on my list of expectations.
“I thought I was supposed to be leading women and writing books. None of that is happening.”
December is a time of preparing for Christmas. For me it is also for reflecting on the past and preparing for the future. As I was reflecting on things the Lord was speaking to me two years ago I had both the reactions above. As I reflected a little longer He reminded me of what I am doing and though it doesn’t look like I expected, I am doing what He said I would be doing.
I may not be leading women’s ministry like I was a couple of years ago but I’m leading women through relationship, writing, and my Facebook group.
While I’m not working directly on a book I have started writing regularly on my blog. Any writing helps and gives me connection with readers and a place to offer value.
My season of life with an infant and teens isn’t working quite like I expected.
I’m having a hard time determining what to expect. I think that may be where God wants me for now. Trusting and resting in Him not in my sense of having things figured out. Maybe to have a season defined by relationship to Him instead of my doing.
Yes. That is my season. A season of drawing near, leaning in for His whisper. A season of asking for direction for each step rather than checking in every day or once a week.
What is your season?
Where do you see His faithfulness to work in you what He promised, even if it looks different from you expected?
