New, New, New!

Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. Isaiah 43:19

As I sit here at my desk closing out old writing projects from seasons past, I know in my spirit that God is ready to bring forth something new into my life. As in previous years, whenever I am led to closeout writing projects or to clean and organize my desk files or boxes that the old must go in order for the new to come forth.

The seventh month of 2011 is officially coming to a close in less than 18 hours and already my mind has become focused on the second half of this year. There is a mighty huge harvest coming not only for my own household but also for those within the household of faith.

In this last season of “just enough” I have been a good steward over the monies earned through my job, as well as tithing and sowing seed off of every book sale made. But despite having just enough to do the necessary minimal, God has yet to continue to provide and to meet every basic need of my household.

As this fresh new season begins to spring forth, bringing with it all that God has purposed, my spirit begins to leap for joy because the old is now past and has been dealt with in so many ways, from physically to emotionally. The time has now come for me to open my arms wide to embrace and receive all of the new that has come. May you also embrace the new, new, new that God is making available for you too.

In closing, I would like to share with you a poem I wrote in the spring of 2000 upon waking up on the morning of a brand new season for my life.  The poem is entitled, It’s Morning.”

Enjoy, Blessings!

It’s Morning

It’s Morning! It’s Morning! Oh the new mercies I see.
It’s Morning! It’s Morning! A brand new day for me.
It’s Morning! It’s Morning! Oh how bright the sun does shine.
It’s Morning! It’s Morning! I have a renewed peace of mind.
It’s Morning! It’s Morning! I will praise the Lord.
It’s Morning! It’s Morning! In Him I adore.
It’s Morning! It’s Morning! He has set me free.
It’s Morning! It’s Morning! From the hand of the enemy.
It’s Morning! It’s Morning!

And then God answered: "Write this.
Write what you see.
Write it out in big block letters
so that it can be read on the run.
This vision-message is a witness
pointing to what's coming.
It aches for the coming—it can hardly wait!
And it doesn't lie.
If it seems slow in coming, wait.
It's on its way. It will come right on time.

Habakkuk 2
(The Message Bible)

During my time of intercession and prayer this morning, I began to pray over and cover the Godly visions (marriage, home, business & ministry) which God has given my husband and me over the 14 years we have been married. Although, we pray for God’s divine will for our lives daily, we had not prayed over the written visions daily. Today, as the written visions were brought to the forefront, I began to pray and to speak forth those things which the spirit led me to speak, I soon found myself truly visualizing what God has already planned to do in and through us. Next, I then began to lift up the written visions of others, some I have met and others I have yet to meet. I began to rejoice with joy because many of these visions will soon be coming to pass.

There has been a stirring in the spirit today concerning previously written God inspired visions and I am led to share with you that if you have a written vision the Father God has given you over the years, now is the time for you to take it off the shelf and go before the Lord in a time of prayer and intercession to pray as the spirit leads you. Whatever God has promised you, it is He who will bring it to pass because He is definitely well able to bless you in and at the appointed time.

Above all, I pray that your faith is renewed and increased as you take your God inspired vision and began to run with it again.
