Hi friends, I hope your summer is going well. Here in Western, NC the cool mountain air and no humidity reminds me of why I moved back to NC from Florida. I love the beach, but I sure did miss the four seasons! There is always something new to look forward to with each season.
Personally, I love working in my yard and decorating my home according to the season. In a physical way it helps me to embrace letting go and looking ahead, which in turn, gives me the opportunity to spiritually reflect on the past, present, and future.
Posted below are a few photos from my first full year back in NC. :)
Charles H. Spurgeon said: "The seasons change, and you change, but the Lord abides evermore the same, and the streams of His love are as deep, as broad and as full as ever.”
Thank you, Lord, for abiding with us through every season, no matter what we face!
Our goal at Flagship is to equip Kingdom Builders, like yourself, to navigate philanthropy and elevate generosity. We desire to see your ministry operating at full capacity and thriving! But, MORE importantly, we desire to see YOU spiritually and emotionally whole, rooted and grounded in relationship with Jesus and leading with the fullness of the Holy Spirit.
So...how do you welcome new seasons (not only physically, but spiritually in your ministry leadership)? New seasons can be exciting, but also painful and challenging.
One of my favorite podcasters, Emily P. Freeman, encourages her listeners to choose their posture for each specific season. For example, a good question to ask yourself when determining your summer posture would be “What would be inner-life-giving for me this summer?"
