I'm reminded of a song that lyrics like this..."It's a new season, it's a new day, a fresh anointing-is coming my way. It's a season of power and prosperity, it's a new season coming for me!" The song was song by Isreal Houghton & New Breed. As I think of the changes that are going on in my life; especially the children getting older and preparing for lives as adults....I know that I'm heading to a new season in my life.
Although my cares were and have always been centered around who and what I believe God desires and purposed for me, my family being a great part of the purpose, I now see a transformation going on. As the children are no longer desiring as much attention from me, I find myself desiring more of God. You know it's almost like finally I'm free to focus on what God wants. Yes, I still and will always as a wife consider the needs of my husband, but he unlike the kids, understand the me and God's time. The kids have little understanding of me time; especially when they have needs that requires mother's attention.
What I once saw as a lost, them not needing me as much, I now see as a new season breaking forward. I still have those moments when I wonder if they'll include me in their lives as much as I would like to be when they are grown, but even if they don't, I know I've given them the best of my life and the best information I had to offer....the knowledge of Jesus Christ. And now they'll have to wonder is mother is going to Woman Thou Art Loosed this year, and every other conference that I can get to, just to be amongst the saints and to get more of God.
You know how when a kid come of age there are some places that they are just dying to get to, I'm coming of age again for the second time and there are some places I'm free to go to without the headache of wondering who will take care of my children and where will they go when I'm gone. It's a new season coming for me and I'm riding the wave on the Word of God. Be Blessed!
