“See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:19 (NIV)
The long, hot days of summer. For many of us, this time of year is peppered with many fun experiences with family and friends….cookouts, beach trips, golf, tennis, pool time, family reunions and the like. Hands down – summer has always been and continues to be my absolute favorite season. To me, it is an opportunity to enjoy the fullness of the outside world in all its glory!
As we sit here on the edge of the Summer Solstice, it has become apparent that not only is this the start of summer, but it’s the start of a brand new season for me in so many other ways. Even more important is the discovery that this new season is exactly what I asked for not so long ago.
It happens to all of us at some point…we’re moving along in our lives, advancing in our careers, relationships and other areas. You’re proceeding along nicely and then you hear it. Maybe you feel it. The clear murmurings that indicate that it’s time to make even greater use of the time, talents and treasures bestowed upon you. What you’re doing is good, but not good enough. You’re destined to contribute to this world more intentionally, and in greater alignment with your passions. Eventually, those murmurings become pretty loud.
After a season cluttered with both personal and professional unrest, I realized that the signals were clear – it was time to prepare for a new season, which involves me embracing a significant shift into a new role that involves more visibility than I’ve ever experienced. It’s time to step out from behind the shadows. Once I stopped resisting, things began to align and new opportunities continue to present themselves. I’m transitioning from a career-focus to a calling-focus, and it’s really exciting!
