For everything, there is a season

For everything, there is a season

What season of life are you in?  Perhaps you are anxiously waiting for your High School graduation date, so that you can set off for the first time on your own.  Or maybe you have completed your four years on your own and are graduating college and anticipating that first career job offer.  Those of you who have surpassed all the excitement of moving out on your own and starting college and have been working your career job now for 20 years, your seasons are more than likely quite different. 

Seasons of life

We all know that not all seasons are bright and exciting.  Life happens and we are faced at times with trouble or heartache.  It is at these times that we tend to feel like God is absent or you may even find yourself asking ”why?”  It is at those hopeless times that is hard to sometimes remember that God is the God of hope, joy, and peace.  He will pull you out of those trying seasons if you just trust in Him. 

You may ask yourself, “How do I even begin to trust Him?”  I have been there, Sister.  I wanted so badly to trust in God but simply did not know how.  I felt like I was just getting deeper and deeper into the pit of despair and questioning how in the world would God get me out. 

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail.  They are new every morning; Great is His faithfulness”.
Lamentations 3:22-23

The compassion that never fails is God’s way to carry us through the day, no matter how hard it gets.  God did not promise a life without storms, but He did promise that He would be your captain and pull you safely to shore. 

  “Jesus is the same yesterday and today and forever.”
Hebrews 13:8 

No matter what season you are in, He remains the same.  Remind yourself every morning of God’s faithfulness, after all, you did wake this morning, didn’t you?

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”
Romans 15:13.

He is an authentic God, He is the same on the mountain top as He is in the valley.

“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven:  a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.”

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
