Seasons for a reason
We have seasons for a reason and we have to go through all four seasons in their order. The one season takes you to the next. There’s no way you can miss out on a season. It’s something you’ll have to face. People face seasons at different times of their journey, but in the end, we all face them and we all feel the joy and blessings as well as the grief and sorrow each brings to our lives. During our seasonal transfers or transitions, we feel alone and if it’s only us who have had these kinds of experiences. Not so. Many people have and many people will still face what you and I have been facing. What we‘re facing isn’t only endings, but also beginnings.
When one thing ends another begins. Our greatest challenge remains the many voices and choices presented to us in the midst of a season of transition from one to the next. We may conclude a season with an attitude of gratitude to be partly ready for the next. Although things may not always feel right know that God knows the best for you and me. Paul writes about is to the church in Rome and says:
“And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.”
Romans 8:28 NASB1995
So can you see that whatever you’re going through is only the start of something greater and better? God‘s eye is not only on your current predicament but also on the end product.
Nobody likes the season they are in. People always want to move on to another season. It's like our satisfaction levels are a bit low. As someone once said- we need to cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Only then we will be able to stay and remain calm in the midst of a seasonal storm. Seasonal storms don't last forever but only for a certain season. Like the rainy season in either summer or winter depending on where you are. Even tornado 🌪 season depends on where you live to feel the true impact of such a storm.
When facing a storm keep dancing in the rain to His glory. Seasons keep moving from one destination to the next. If you remain where you are sooner or later the season will change and you will see some better days. Nothing stays the same in and out of season, but things changes as the season's change. So do people change? We become grey, bold and even short-breathed.
Your season is the beginning of something new and maybe the end of something bad. Maybe it's the end of something Nice and the beginning of something bad. Either way, you must honour God in and out of season. Whether it goes well or bad you must honour the Lord and always put Him first.
Your problem may be big, but your God is bigger. Always keep this in mind.
What you are going through now is temporary and will be over soon as the seasons go by. When God brings you to it He will lead you through it.
Before you can wipe your eyes, something new has come into your life.
In pain hold on to God.
In Storms hold on to God.
In good times still hold on and do not let go. You know who you believe in. You know He is able to save you, heal you, restore you.
Your life in Jesus' hands is "perfect". You will never be able to get your life more perfect than in Jesus' hands.
Be seasoned in and through your season. This is your season and you should own it and believe still that God will use your seasons for the good of YOU and the Gospel.
God makes no mistakes! He’s always spot on and on the mark. He knows your ins and outs. He has a plan to lead you through your season. “For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.”
Jeremiah 29:11 NASB1995
Be safe and be calm. You will make it!!
Greetings and lots of love.
