Song Spotlight: Seasons

Often we wish our seasons away. We rush through them as we anticipate what is coming next, and especially when a season is difficult. We sing of “overcoming it” rather than pushing into it and committing to absorb every lesson God might have to teach us. 

The song “Seasons” explores the concept of being patient in the phase God has you in. God is the King of all seasons, so He knows where He has you, why He has you there, and how long He wants to keep you there. So relax, lean into Him, and don’t miss the journey He has you on. 

Mary Pt. 2: Confidence in a Misunderstood Identity

We have all been there: in those dark, lonely moments of injustice when our reputations feel tarnished by something that was not our fault. Maybe you were sinned against. Maybe you gained a label you thought you would never have to carry. Maybe you were falsely accused. It’s amazing how quickly one can find herself plummeted into the center of shame and humiliation without ever having done anything to deserve it. 

And I’m sure Mary understood this feeling more deeply than most. 

Praying Boldly (As Taught by a Child)

Though it seems silly to compare myself to my 5-year old's prayer life, I have begun to wonder if what I have labeled in her as a naivety resulting from lack of life experience may more accurately be described as a simplicity in her view of who is in control. Her requests flow from a place of peace and are presented before the One she has been taught holds the whole world in His hands.
