Today we welcome Alex to the blog! Let’s step into her season…
What seasons do you currently find yourself in?
“I’m currently in a season of transition; moving from one great place to the next, but feeling all of the growing pains. If I were to relate it to an actual season I’m literally in a TX spring: one day it’s sunshine and rainbows but come evening it’s tornado season”
What is God teaching you/revealing to you during this season?
“I’m being challenged to trust God in the unknown and recognize when He speaks. ”
How have you changed/are you changing in this season?
“I’m changing every day in this season! It’s so interesting as a woman to try to take hold of your thoughts AND emotions and test them against The Word. It’s definitely not easy, so it’s an active choice to believe that God knows best and that ‘He works everything out for the good of those who love Him.’ I’m slowly becoming more confident because my spirit is being tested and strengthened; but I’m also growing an awareness for the people and the needs outside of myself.”
What encouragement would you give someone who is in a similar season?
“Choose EVERY DAY to live on purpose. Do your very best with what God’s given you in your hand for this moment and ACTIVELY seek truth. Don’t let the opinions of the world, your friends or evening the random thoughts in your head tell you who your are or what is right. There is One Savior who clearly says ‘I am the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE.’
And, you are not alone! Find someone who can walk with you through this season. We were created for relationship! Find wise (older) council to disciple you, and find some friends that you can be absolutely honest with.”
A Prayer for Alex
God, we thank You that You are the Keeper of Time and Arranger of Seasons. Thank You for Alex and the season she is in. Thank You for being aware of her and with her in this season. I pray that You would continue to give Alex discernment in hearing Your voice. I pray the other voices in her head will be silenced with Your truth. I pray when she does not have clarity that You will give her courage to step out in the direction she feels You are leading. I pray Lord You will protect her as she treads new paths. May she continue to seek You more than guidance. Continue to provide mentors and friends to walk this path with her. I pray she will not be afraid to feel certain emotions, for You are the Creator emotions. May she not label certain feelings “good or bad” but may You turn her feelings into faith. Show her even more of You. In Your Name, Amen.
