The baby's been handed over

Several weeks ago the Lord shifted us out of the 'home office' into the 'market place' and in the process a spiritual shift happened - one of letting the 'baby' go, a releasing and handing over the batten, so to speak to others.

In this process the nests that WE ALL have been in have been stirred up, shaken about, and pushed out, to fly in ways that perhaps we were too afraid to do previously.
The amazing thing with God is that He knows the timing of all of this and where each one of us is at and what we can handle.  Yes there has been a fluttering of wings in panic.  Yes, we have had a few weeks of challenge as authority and structures get changed and challenged, frustrations coming to the fore, but
love helps us overcome, 
love helps us to forgive, 
love helps us to see the good and not the dirt, love helps us remember our own failings and yet forgiveness and grace that the Lord has for me, that I can give to others, remembering it's the glory of God to overlook offences.

It is an exciting time as we look forward to what is to come.  Not necessarily the current place of change we are in, but the place as we learn to walk in this new season and all that the Lord has for each one of us.

So lets not forget to give thanks, amidst the challenges.  I see the Lords hand in all of this, pushing us all into a new place but in this process lets pray for one another and cover each other in our weaknesses and have each others back.  We love and appreciate each one of you.  You are amazing and we are thankful that the Lord has put you all alongside us.

With love - Sarah and Jim
