Recently, I visited the Biltmore Estate outside Asheville, North Carolina. The rose garden was in full bloom and stunningly beautiful. So, I’m posting a few photos from that excursion. You’ll notice different colors of roses, but they are all part of the rose family. Just as we are all part of the human family. There’s a timing to when roses bloom, and there’s a timing for our lives to bloom, too. #JuneBlooms #SeasonShift #GodsTiming4YourLife
Certain areas of the world and the United States have pretty much the same weather all year round. But where I live in Pennsylvania, June is the end of spring and the beginning of summer. We generally have all four seasons here, but they are not always predictable. #JuneBlooms #SeasonShift #GodsTiming4YourLife
Testing comes before promotion. In school, we must study and take tests, so we may pass to the next grade. Or graduate from high school, or college. It’s the same in our spiritual walk. A few weeks ago, we talked of the valley of testing. It helps prepare divine shift to unlock your blessings that will come.

Back to Basics. We hear it all the time. To be successful in our jobs, we need to know the basics, plus a lot more. In our walk with God, so that we can unlock our divine shift, we need to get back to the basics. Click to Tweet #GodsTimingForYourLife #amwriting #UnlockingYourBlessingsInMay2018 #donnalhsmith
Will there be changes coming to you in the month of May? How will you know and how can you unlock the blessings God wants to give you in the month of May? Are you ready to move forward with God? How adaptable can you be? Click to Tweet #GodsTimingForYourLife #amwriting #UnlockingYourBlessingsInMay2018 #donnalhsmith
Throughout April, we’ve been looking at God’s Timing for Your Life, by Dutch Sheets. I’ve read this little book many times since it was released in 2001. Rev. Sheets outlines nine keys to creating a shift in your life, getting you ready to walk into God’s favor. We’ll be looking at those keys during the month of May. Be encouraged. God is shifting the season. Grab hold of it. Click to Tweet #GodsTimingForYourLife #amwriting #UnlockingYourBlessingsInMay2018
These keys are mentioned in the first chapter of Joshua in the Bible.
We’re looking at the year through the eyes of each month. Wonderful things can certainly come in any month, but somehow, right now, April is a time of blessing, because of traditional “April showers.” Click to Tweet #AprilShowersofBlessing #GodsTimingForYourLife
The Bible says, “Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” That could mean a season of time where one is sad or depressed. I’ve been there. But truly, joy does come eventually. More on that next week.
The challenge is to keep going, keep trying. “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9 #DueSeason #amwriting #GodsTimingForYourLife #AprilShowersofBlessing Click to Tweet
Our second day of April brought snow instead of rain, an example of being “out of season.” Which can mean we could be out of God’s Timing. Last time, I talked about two of the words for “time” — chronos and kairos. Chronos is ordinary time. Kairos is opportune time. Which time are you in?
