Last November I felt God asking me to give Him some major things in my life that I had birthed and fought tooth and nail to nurture and protect – dreams that were everything to me. It was one of those moments where I had to lay them at His feet and trust Him not knowing if I would ever see them again.
So many of us have been in this place in the last 6 months where God unexpectedly has sprung a deviation to the plan and an interruption to the scheduled course and it doesn’t make sense. Dreams, like seeds have had to fall to the ground and it’s been the greatest emptying you have ever experienced. But I hear the Lord saying,
“Watch in May as I begin to pour in the new wine and fill you to overflow. Watch as I peel back the curtains for you to see what I have been orchestrating that you couldn’t, and watch now what I place back in your hands.”
The seeds that died have only multiplied. These have not been wasting months but preparation months as God has been resetting your heart, delivering you from distractions, removing your hand from dead works, lifting burdens, ending the nonstop pursuit of slanderers, and giving you new vision for the days ahead.
