Winds of Change

Winds of Change

As fall foliage begins to emerge, and here in Texas the temperature has finally begun to fall below 70 degrees, I am looking expectantly to winter and the holiday season that will soon be upon us. Cold weather and the change it signifies are invigorating!  Although in Texas we’ve only had one tiny cool spell, it indicates that a transformation is already underway — to me, a welcomed transformation from 90 degree heat!!

In a similar way, winds of change began to blow in my heart this summer.  The Holy Spirit descended upon my spiritual walk in a way I have never known.  As Fall gives a glimpse of the winter to follow, what God has birthed in my spirit in recent weeks is but a hint of the change — the revelation, the anointing, the outcome — that is underway. After tasting His presence in a new way, I long for more!  And quickly!  I can only imagine where He’s going and how much of His heart I will eventually experience! But God is barely tipping His hand…This is a transformation of duration — a slow development as I diligently seek Him, not an overnight sensation.

God began this new work in my heart over the summer as I sought His direction for this season’s Passionate Pursuit. Since that time I have never been the same! And never will be!

With all my heart, I believe God initiated this change not just for my benefit, but for yours. He began this work with the women of Passionate Pursuit in mind. I believe He longs to do a new work in your life as well. And I like “new,” don’t you?  I like living in a region of the country where we experience different seasons.  And I like being transformed from glory to glory.  None of us wants to grow stagnant with no new birth of God in our lives. God isn’t just doing a little makeover, He’s rearranging my whole world spiritually — for my benefit, yes. And for His, as He will have a more mature servant.  But also for your benefit, that you might have another place to receive a fresh touch from Him.  That’s how God brought this change to my heart — through ministries and people upon whom He’d similarly moved.

God has blown such fresh wind into my spirit that I cannot approach Passionate Pursuit the same old way. He is doing a new thing!  And I look expectantly to what is ahead!!  The winds of change signify that a deep transformation — to more anointing, more of God’s presence, more spiritual results in your life — is already underway for Passionate Pursuit.The November 5th Passionate Pursuit is going to be different — “new.”  Well…there will be one repeat – Hotel Fredonia’s bread pudding (knew you’d be glad for that one!).  But apart from that, come expecting something new and fresh from the Lord, tailor made just for you.

Mark your calendar and RSVP: Thursday, November 5th, 6:30 p.m. Come be a part of an incredible evening as we welcome a new move and anointing of God upon our lives. How glorious and life changing the result will be!!  Join me in a Passionate Pursuit and let’s experience God’s promised reward.

“…for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him” Hebrews 11:6 (emphasis added).
