Super Moon On Its Way!

A “Super Moon” is coming our way this Saturday night, March 19, 2011!  This is when the moon will appear bigger as it makes its closest approach to earth in 19 years during an event known as “Lunar Perigee”.

I have always loved full  moons – and for a reason!  Twenty-two years ago, when I was late on delivery of my youngest daughter, my later mother-in-law, Vernie Thaxton, told me “Don’t worry – when the moon is full – you WILL deliver!” And that is exactly what happened!  That daughter is now expecting HER daughter any day – and I’m thinking this week-end.  The theory behind this is that the moon’s gravitational pull affects the amniotic fluid in much the same way it affects the water in the sea.

For years, farmers have faithfully used the Farmers Almanac for guidance in times to plant.   There are times of planting and times of gathering.  A farmer would never consider planting corn and expecting a harvest the next day.  It would not make good sense.  Oh, and by the way, most farmers use good sense!

Many times when a vision is planted inside our hearts and minds, we expect “immediate delivery”.  We have a vision of how our lives – our businesses – our families – our finances – our churches –  are to be.  We get discouraged and wonder why it isn’t happening NOW!   King Solomon wrote “To everything there is a season and a time for every purpose under the sun.  A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant and a time to pluck what is planted.”

Between the planting of the vision – and the birthing of that vision –  a season of WAITING – GROWING – MATURING – DEVELOPING – when we are only “pregnant” with the promise.    Here’s the good news – When the time is right – the vision will be born!   And hey – it may be this week-end!  Super Moon is on its way!

My question to you this Friday is this – are you waiting on a vision to be birthed in your life?   I would LOVE your responses:

    I have been waiting on a promise the Lord made to me back in Nov 2002. I have not seen it come to fruition yet and do feel very “pregnant” with it right now like I may be in my last trimester of waiting. I would love to hope that this weekend would be the birth of that promise! The Lord gave me this verse back in Nov of 2002

    Isaiah 64:4 “For no eye has seen nor ear has heard what God has for those who wait for Him.”

    Thank you sister for your encouraging words and hard work with the bible study. It is truly been a blessing in my life!

    I for one am in a season of maturing. Just 56 days left till I graduate with my BBA! Working and going to school has defintely taught me so many skills that I will use when my BIG DREAM is ready to bloom – running my own business selling dance gifts. Im so thankful God has led me to a company where I can experience and grow so much with so many good people until my dream is ready!

    The Farmers Wife! I love it~
    I shared this quote at Bible Study Wednesday…
    Lord, help me to wait expectantly,
    to act purposefully,
    and to trust You to see me through to the end. Amen.
    -Dietrich Bonhoeffer

    We do wait for the promises that God has given us, but in that waiting we are expectant and purposeful in doing our part as we wait on God to do His part…the part that we mere humans are incapable of doing.

    I agree with Kristy, there are a couple of promises that the Lord has given me over 13 years ago now, that I would so like to see come to fruition this weekend, or better yet, TODAY! But just because it has not happened yet, that does not mean that I can’t or won’t trust God. It does mean that I will wait with GREATER expectation!

    Thanks for sharing Louise…
