In this time, and in the trials you are currently finding yourself in, know I am working diligently to position you and to catapult you to your next season. I am working to launch you into your next phase. And while it seems difficult, unusual, and backwards know there is a greater purpose being worked within you, yet to be fully revealed. You see parts, and you see pieces, but not all of them have been shown to you. So know and trust all you are currently experiencing, even the difficult and uncomfortable elements, will make more sense to you in days and seasons still yet to come. (1)
The phase you are living in today is crucial for setting you up for the phases you will encounter tomorrow. Each step is important along the way. Each step serves a larger purpose, and none of them can be skipped. Each step is essential in the staircase of your growth. None of the steps can be by-passed, omitted, or forgotten. Each step matters. Each step is significant. Each step is necessary to bring you to the place of your destiny by means of deliberate and strategic preparation.
So know while these hardships may seem pointless, and the trials and struggles seem as though they serve no purpose, know each step is necessary. Know all these things are working to serve a larger purpose, within a larger context. Today is not your final day. This season is not your final season. This current season is moving you and preparing you for other seasons yet to come. (2)
