“To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV)
As I embark on this new season to come, one of bubbas and burping, feeding and cuddles, I reflect on not just the exciting season ahead but also the incredible seasons passed while at Northside.
I think about the privilege it has been to take hold of the incredible vision of those before me. Their season of hard work, faith and sacrifice. To take hold of their vision and with God’s help be a part of it becoming reality. I think about the seasons with all my wonderful colleagues (aka family), past and present. Those that did the 6am early days with me, that helped deliver our “Northside Difference” for all of our incredible clients or those that simply cheered us on with our Conference Ministry.
It is with a full and grateful heart that I reflect on the seasons of life so far, especially my last near six and a half years at Northside. Some challenging, some a step of faith, some not what I expected at all but all have an incredible element of wonderful! They were all filled with amazing God moments of learning, joy and love.
As this new season begins it is with so much love and gratitude that I say thank you to you all – my amazing church family. Those that have and will continue to walk with me in all of life’s beautiful seasons. God willing I will be back in 12 months to continue serving you all but until then please know what an honour it has been to walk beside you in all seasons. No matter what the season, God has a great and wonderful purpose for us all.
