Yesterday’s message, The January 21st Nut Shell, was long and full of details. I pray that today’s message is short and sweet. I also hope that it gently pushes you to identify and appreciate your own unique seasoning.
It is during the quiet times at Under The Horizon where I feel God’s presence most.

It is in this hush that I can best sense His message, His guidance, and my next steps.
Late afternoons, evenings, and many Saturday’s the studio is streaming with activity. I have been told on numerous occasions that I always seem so calm. I am grateful that I come across that way as my insides are a flurry of activity trying to keep-up and work-the-plan. I could not do any of this without my amazing team! We aim for excellence and too show faith-in-action in all of our work. I personally try to always look my students directly in the eye, to capture their essence, so I can best guide them in their work.
It has been said that you must die a little to live a little. I never understood this statement until I began to get seasoned. I have been seasoned in life, in grief, in love, in friendship, in work… I have watched my seasoning develop like an old cast iron pot. I never understand the purpose of this seasoning until I get faced with an opportunity to call upon it.
Here is a video made back in May 2017. Seasoning only makes cast iron pots better. What does it do to you?

Until next time… And the God of all grace, who called you to his eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast. -1 Peter 5:10
