There are so many new views from this landscape.
The doing part and the belonging to community part of life came and went so swiftly.
God very clearly and softly answered a decades long prayer of my heart and our family’s heart when He brought us to South Carolina.
It’s all so shocking that its taken me months to process the overflow of the obedience, the swiftness of the sale of our home and the purchasing of another. The continued provision of service and career along with the monetary foundation.
How quickly He started revealing what He frequently doesn’t very often.
He began to reveal to us through one detail after another what He’d actually had in motion for years. A new season completely for our family and most importantly for our marriage.
A friend recently called this the year of the fallow for us:
fal·low –plowed and harrowed but left unsown for a period in order to restore its fertility as part of a crop rotation or to avoid surplus production.
After over a decade of having a husband who traveled weeks at a time overseas and raising three amazing kiddos…
this year.. He’s giving us the chance to fall back in love with Him, His Word and each other. He’s allowing us the time to leave the land unsown and allow the richness and fullness of the new crop to surprise and delight us.
Fallow is hard. Fallow is isolating.. but the season of fallow is full of love and extreme obedience and we’re going to persevere and rest in it.
Is there a fallowed landscape in your current season? If so, what does it look like?
