Happy Tuesday!
The Bible says:
“He made the moon for the seasons; the sun knows the place of its setting”.
Psalm 104:19
Changes come, especially season changes. But the changes impact all our lives in some ways.The bible reminds us that seasons are important to God, that He has a calendar.We just get a glimpse of these patterns when we see winter passing into spring.
The bible also reminds us that our lives pass through seasons. That there is”an appointed time for everything”{ Ecclesiastes 3:1}.
Today, think about the season in your life. Remember the “Seeds” that God has given you. Your time, and how you spend it. Your resources, and what you do with them.Your talents and abilities. Remember you have been given these gifts to Sow, investing them in the lives of others and in His Kingdom.

Happy Monday!
The Bible says:
Wherefore seeing we also are compasses about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which depth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us.
Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God.
Hebrews 12:1-2
BE ON GUARD against the pit of self-pity.When you are weary or unwell its easy for the enemy to try and trap you. Don’t even go near the edge of the pit.it’s edges crumble and before you know it, you are on your way down.
How can you protect yourself from self-pity?
Spend your time praising and thanking the Lord…you cant feel sorry for yourself when you are praising Him. The closer you get to Jesus the more distance you will be from the pit of self-pity.
Fix your eyes on JESUS. ..not the problems.

Happy Shouting Sunday!
The Bible says:
Be still and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.
Psalm 46:10
When you face difficulties in your life that would make you feel you are on a stormy sea, how exactly can you be still? {Calm}To be calm does not mean that the storm is no longer all around you, it means that the storm rage, but you are free from the effects of them.{Hushed}Don’t get angry at God we leave no room in our hearts for the Spirit to dwell. “Be still and know that I am God” is not just a saying, it is a state of being. It is the ability to rescue you. As we learn to be still and trust in God, we come to know and understand that we are never forgotten He will come to us. All it takes is for us to be still.

Happy Saturday!
The Bible says:
Remember ye not the former things, neither consider the things of old. Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.
Isaiah 43:18-19
Isaiah gave Isreal an important reminder-even as God had been at work in their beginning, he would shape their future as well. God promised to move in a mighty way and do “a new thing”. Their past mistakes and sins would have no bearing on their future because God would blot them out and remember them no more.
Even now we can find hope and assurance in knowing that just as God moved for Israel, God will move for us.
The Lord is reminding us that He has a “track record” of turning things around. “This is my season!” Even now….He is doing a new thing!
