His Promises,Your Testimony

My Year of Change
I will keep praying and praising God
He's not slack concerning His promises
I have been decided by God to prosper
Greater works than what I am doing now I shall do
My adversity will end up promoting me
Out of rejection God will make me a selection for promotion
I receive help out of Zion today
My change is coming
It's riding on the promise of His word

My dear friend sent the piece above to me yesterday, and it got me thinking of the season we are in; Spring.

Sitting at work, looking out the window towards the park across the street, it's evident that spring is finally here!

Okay, in England right now, we are experiencing four seasons in one day! But hey, according to God's order of change, its spring time all the same

I love spring time because to me, it is the season of unfolding.

Flowers slowly stretching their tender petals
Yawning to the emergence of spring
At the break of dawn the birds
they ruffle their feathers, spread their wings
open their lungs to start the day, with a beautiful song

When I think of spring, I think of rising up, leaping forth and changing position. I think of moving forward and outward, of releasing myself from my current coiled, yet comfortable position.
Spring time somehow translates to:
Clearing out the old, and bringing in the new.
Getting ready for impending changes before the month of June!

Spring fills me with excitement and anticipation of changes to come; changes that hang on the very promises God whispered to me through his word. God has given each and every one of us a great promise, and his promises are trustworthy and ever so faithful as described in Hebrews 10:23 "Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful."

And also as explained in 2 Corinthians 1:20 "For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us."

It reminds me that as the seasons change, our lives is and should be subject to change, to fit into his will, his purpose and evolve us to who we are meant to be.

Today, as we enjoy the beautiful sun rays of spring, I remind us all that in our lives, change is imminent; positive changes propelled by the promises of God's word.

As you progress through this year, I remind you not to give up on those promises God made to you. I encourage you embrace the changes his promises will bring into your life. You don't need a ticket to get on board the change train; all you need is an open heart, a receptive spirit to take part.

Have an awesome day enjoying the freshness of spring, reveling in God's promises, getting rid of the old, making room for the new and making room for changes that are coming soon.

Much love

that awakens sleepy souls to sweet melodious tunes, perfect for the start of cool spring day!
Just like I wrote "where art thou O spring" I think we can safely say it's starting to show it's long awaited face.
