They come and they go. Some feel like eternity, while others seem to pass far too quickly.
Some are filled with rich celebration and lots of laughter, while others serve as a jar that collects our tears and awakens our hearts.
Some, we sacrifice our own desires, while others are fueled by our dreams.
Some are built through the embracing of new roles, while others are founded upon embracing the mundane and the monotonous.
But there are two very important things that I have come to learn about seasons:
1.) Each one shall pass in His timing.
2.) Every season contains the gift of preparation for the next.
I do not know what season you’re currently in or which one you’ve just come out of but I do know that you are being prepared and groomed for BIG things. I do know that there is much temptation to press rewind or fast forward because sometimes the greatest discipline is just being PRESENT in this season.
But that’s my prayer for you. That’s my prayer for me. That, in between all the crazy and all the pressure and all the expectations and all the madness, that we would be content.
As the leaves change around you, be reminded that His timing is sovereign and that within His grasp, He makes it all beautiful.
“He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.” -Daniel 2:21
“He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority.” -Acts 1:7
