Moving into a New Season - New Decade

Moving into a New Season - New Decade
Blessed is she who has believed that what the Lord has said to her will be accomplished!
Luke 1:45

As we move into this new decade I am reminded about the number 10 and what it means. Number ten deals with coming full circle, as well as fresh starts. Some of us have come full circle and some need a fresh new start. Ten also represents fulfillment, attainment, and completion. Other words that come to mind are Still Fresh, Not previously experienced or encountered, Different from the former. How has the past 10 years been for you? What are you expecting in the next 10? I know some of the time has been testing times, happy times and times of doubt and fear, but God continues to be faithful and His word never changes. We may change and we may doubt, but He never changes. Are you ready for your fresh new season?

Take a minute to remember all that He has done for you in the past 10 years. He is a mighty God and His promises are true. Many of the things that I prayed for have come forth. Some of the things I had to wait many years for. I have to remind myself daily that His timing is perfect. Ten years ago Roland Jr was 10. He is now 18 and preparing for college in 2010. God has blessed him and continues to reveal more and more to him about his calling and destiny. As parents we may want one thing for our children but God knows best. Allow Him to guide and direct. As I release him into his new season God give me the strength to allow you to lead and guide. What does God have in-store for you in this new season? Are you ready to allow Him to guide and direct?

It has been already pointed out that ten is one of the perfect numbers, and signifies the perfection of Divine order. Let us get in Gods divine order for our lives in this new season. Allow Him to lead and guide and watch the amazing things He does in our lives.  I am excited and looking forward to this new season.

In this New Season Let Go and Let God!

Let Go and Let God

As Children Bring Their Broken Toys
With Tears For Us To Mend

I Brought My Broken Dreams To God,
Because He Is My Friend

But Then Instead Of Leaving Him
In Peace To Work Alone,

I Hung Around And Tried To Help,
With Ways That Were My Own

At Last, I Snatched Them Back Again
And Cried, "How Can You Be So Slow?"

"My Child" He Said, "What Could I Do?
 You Never Did Let Go!"

In 2010 Let Go and Let God!
