Recently, I was reading a devotional on “flourishing,” which got me thinking how God has people flourishing in roles for a season.
It seems he often makes room for new vision in our hearts as old seasons come to an end. And as with many endings, there is often painful growth in the transition of letting go.
Like seeds, some things must die in order for the new to come to fruition. And those things aren’t always clear… timing, places and people come into the sovereign mix orchestrated by God.
Throughout the ages, God has continuously called people to flourish in the new seasons of life — always for his glory.
When I meet with someone or lead our Starting Point Q&A I tell people, “there’s a place for you in God’s Kingdom!” (and I always follow it with, “and whether it’s here or elsewhere, it is my sincere hope to help you find it!”).
It’s exciting to walk alongside others as they seek God’s will for their lives. It’s also a bit nebulous, mysterious and not for those unwilling to step into the adventure of following Jesus.
Flourishing according to God’s purposes is not for the faint of heart - rather it is for the caring of heart - the one after God’s own heart!
What is God asking of you in this season? Let me know if you want to chat about it!
Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. (Isaiah 43:19, ESV)
