I have heard a couple of sermons about “the pressing season” and it has me thinking about my own pressing experience. I feel like my pressing season, started last year when I released my first book and was going through a break up all at the same time. (Plug – Book Link – also in IG BIO). LOL.
My pressuring season:
I remember feeling emotionally and physically drained in multiple areas of my life. I prepared myself for the worst and was like okay you are going to be depressed and lose about 10 to 15 pounds, but that did not happen. Lol. The moment that was supposed to break me, propelled me into my purpose.
I had help:
During that season, I pressed into God like never before and cultivated my relationship with him. I literally read Ephesians chapter 1, 2 and 3 repeatedly. Lol. In addition, I had friends that called me and the best therapist.
What did it produce:
Out of the pressing season came revelation of my purpose. Be careful what you pray for. Lol. I remember probably for a year or so before my pressing season, I prayed for God to reveal my purpose to me. I did not expect for it to happen like it did, but I am grateful that it did.
The enemy thought he buried me, but I had purpose in me. My pressing season helped me to fertilize the seed and the soil that God predestined for me. My pressing season produced a pathway to my purpose that God is revealing daily.
Question of the day: Have you been through your pressing season? What has that looked like for you?
Scripture of the day: Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 3:14
