Time to Renew

Draw Near to God

Does it feel like summer has just flown by? Didn’t the girls just get out of school, like, last week? I can still feel the Florida sand between my toes like it was yesterday, but it was three long months ago.

It was a fun summer with no schedule, sleeping in until 10 am (that was the 12-year-old), no official bedtime, summer vacation with the family and a wedding on the beach mentioned above.

There was disappointment too. Selling of a business that was built for many, many years. One of a job accepted, then relinquished, leaving us to flutter about like a crazy moth banging its head again a window trying to escape. Now, we are left to start over. Did we not read the signs correctly, God?

That last one makes me feel like I need to renew.

I need to come out of the laziness that is summer and into a renewed purpose.

I need to be invigorated, connected, committed (not to a hospital kind of committed either).

As the leaves and weather change, shaking off summer, so too does this life.

This renewing starts with Him. Commit to read the Word. Connect to it. Be invigorated by it.

“That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed every day. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them and will last forever! So we don’t look at the trouble we can need now; rather, we fix our gaze on things that cannot be seen. For the things we see now will soon be gone, but the things we cannot see will last forever.” 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 NLT

What about you? What plans do you have for this new season?

  1. I think that you are in good company feeling like the summer has flown by, and even questioning if choices made or plans laid out are within His will. I can’t believe how fast time flew this summer, it was weird. I am not really, ready to start the next phase and find myself hovering with anticipation bording on procrastination. 🙂 Committing ourselves in to the hands of our most capable Heavenly Father is the only remedy so I am going to join you in the invigorating prospect of being renewed in Him daily to be prepared for my day.
    Blessings!
