- A New Year Brings a New Season
Date: January 17, 2018
And I'm not talking about the weather haha! If you subscribe to my newsletter you know 2017 was quite the "desert" year for me. In fact it was my most desert year since (gulp!) 1991/2! And I can only praise God for His hand that carried me through. But as 2018 begins, in my prayer life I'm reminded of how the Lord operates in seasons. Over my nearly-30 years of walking with Him I've seen my share of seasons. There was the Matthew season and the speaking/touring season that followed. There was my season of "crusades" with Pastor Martin Tivane. With Encounter, a season of Pure Flix films began. There was my authorship season, and most recently the Alison's Choice season... It's never pleasant when a season ends. And our tendency is to try to keep the motor going. But then a guy gets on his knees and it becomes clear..."Forget the former things. Open your eyes; I Am doing a new thing!" (Isaiah 43:18-19). And so, on the heels of a desert 2017, we move forward knowing the Lord has something new. I know we will film The Gospel Acc. to John this year--and I know we need a lot more money to do it! But then Isaiah 43:18-19 goes on to say, "I Am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." So... Bring it on, Lord! New season, here we come!
