It’s a new season…the dawn is here
The light is just getting a little brighter…a little warmer
I know that we’re all glad to now have new pages…a new year
Resolutions are being made…budgets drawn and blueprints sketched
There’s a lot we plan to do this year, don’t we?
So as the foundations are laid to make this year a success
Let’s pose and ask, what’s the reference point…the gauge
What will we measure our year’s success with?
I believe that when we ushered in this season, we ushered in 366 days in bulk
But we’re gonna receive them in installments of days and months…all in the same season
Question is…have you moved to the new season or are you still stuck in yesterday?
For its quite possible to live a long life…all stuck in one season
Held there by regrets of seasons past…fears…uncertainties…doubts
Held back by the story that is our past
Well, your story is still in the works and you have a bunch of new pages to re route your script
366 new…clean slates on which to write the next chapter of your story
How about you consider shifting your yardsticks?
This season, remember that life is not about a destination…but your destiny
Life is about a fulfillment of destiny
And the real measure of success…is how many lives you influence so much that they choose to live like you
…how many achievements and successes you harness through the opportunities the season brings
…how many people will remember your impact in your generation
Remember not to get too familiar with a location, a blessing, a downfall or a season
For it’s possible to live in one season of life forever and see not the fulfillment of your destiny
So when your bed of rest becomes a bed of nails
Shift seasons…for that you were in has run its course
Break free from the shackles…in this new season, His grace is sufficient
As for the relationships that’ll change…let them be
For different seasons need different casts…so some will stay and some will not
Choose to let go of those who will leave…it’s the only way you’ll embrace those who’ll stay…and those who’ll come
Purpose to live, purpose to bless, and purpose to allow yourself to be blessed by those whose seasons will be aligned to yours
It’s a new season…with new pages to fill
Purpose to bless a life…
Purpose to re route your script…
Remember we have no right to tomorrow…but we have today
So live, love, trust, learn, laugh, hope, grow, believe…
And fill your new pages with a story of a man…a woman…a girl…a boy…
Who set out to beat the odds
And live out the season…
And live out his destiny.
