This past month has been rough for me. I won't lie here. Honestly, it feels like a chiropractic treatment. Sometimes, doing the same thing works for a while, and is even great for a long time, but, as we all know, sometimes things need to be realigned. You are hurting before you go to the chiropractor, you don't feel great when you're getting readjusted, and you're sore for a while afterwards. Eventually though, the soreness fades, and you feel like you are right where you need to be.
This past month has been one of realignment for me; changing relationships, re-prioritizing my life, and just resting. I have such a hard time saying no, all the while knowing I need to say it.
It seems to me that this is the beginning of a new season. Almost everyone I have talked to is going through some major change. Whether physical or emotional, realignment makes you sore for quite a while. The good news? When the soreness ends, (and believe me, it will) it will bring relief with it; whether we know we need relief or not.
This past month, the scripture that has given me peace through all of this spiritual, mental, and physical overhaul is Isaiah 43:19-
"See, I am doing a new thing!
    Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?
I am making a way in the wilderness
    and streams in the wasteland. "

I am praying in the season of realignment, that you will find immense physical, mental, and spiritual refreshing.
