A Few Years

It only takes a few years…..
To be an overnight success!

I am reminded of this by the timing of my current journey.

So much happens behind the scenes.

Little things fall together so easily, after many years of waiting for it.

And the changes occur after standing in faith and growing in trust.

It is more than wonderful to share in the new season and the blessing when it comes, however as I stand back and reflect on the ‘what has happened’, I can see that the greatest of all is the growth of character!


Life is a journey, and one to be enjoyed, and as we head towards our destination, we can be assured that things will never stay the same. Just as seasons come and go in the realm of nature, so do they for us in our journey of life. This brings with it a choice to learn and grow.

My past season, has allowed for my character to grow and the lesson has been that of becoming humble and by default allowing me to cope with the new season.

I have become more aware that each season has its purpose, designed for my growth and the ability to embrace what is ahead.

In this journey of the ‘overnight’ success I can trust and know that God has and will continue to provide the strength and wisdom needed to perform the tasks that the present require of me as I continue to grow in abilities for what will come in my future.

I am thankful that I can rely on this as I become more and more aware of the weaknesses in me, the lack of ability and wisdom entwined with the challenges of life reminding me that God knows what He is doing and why there is what I very often view as a ‘significant time delay’!

Simply, I am not ready for what I thought I was, not right now, anyway.

However a willingness to partner with what God is doing, the ability to accept what He is doing and the timing – yep faith in His plan – I will be prepared for what the future has for me. And with this I stand to believe that –

“The best is yet to come!”

Everything happens for a reason and in due season.

Book DEBrief

"Undaunted" by Christine Caine

A book I will read again!

The story that Christine shares is personal and impacting, full of honesty and openness. I related to so much of what she had to share and was extremely encouraged.

Christine is with no doubt a woman of faith, but it is the way in which she openly shares the journey of faith, including the thoughts of doubt and question and the wonder of how it will all work out that for me was the greatest encouragement.

I often feel like a lesser woman of faith when I begin to doubt, yet what I learnt from this real life story is that is the action which we take that will bring us closer to the purpose we were designed for.

I was also reminded that, from my own dark and depressive experiences, I can be used to empower and equip others; but it takes the desire to not only want change but to hang on tight to it, grip it well and move forward with it every day.

This is my first Christine Caine book, one I picked up from a recommendation, and I am so glad that I did. Christine writes in an easy to read fashion, but I found it was her honesty and humbleness before God that captured me.

I do recommend this book as a great read, but be prepared to be challenged whilst also very encouraged to become someone who is UNDAUNTED!
