a new year, a new opportunity...a new season! we can easily be excited about entering a new season in our lives and God gives us new seasons. what we miss is what it may take to enter a new season. we must release our past to enter a new season. we must leave our present to enter a new season. we must surrender our future to enter a new season from God. wow. it is not so easy after all.
a new season brings growth which we don't often have in our current status. a new season takes effort - releasing past, leaving present and surrendering future. a new season brings moments and memories with God that we have not had before and that we will cherish for a long time.
i'm ready for a new season. just like Isaiah 60, i am ready to arise and shine in '09!
