I stopped listening to Hillsong's 'Seasons' last year because the lyrics that used to encourage me became stings to my weary heart. I had grown tired of waiting for a deliverance from my circumstance that hope had eventually died in me. On the first day of this year, I sat before God and laid it all down. I prayed for hope to arise within me again, and for a joyful surrender over helpless resignation. So I choose this song for the first theme of the year, in hopes that it will encourage you in your season of waiting, if indeed you are waiting at all.
