This Is Your Season
As we have journeyed on the road of life, we have been able to experience some great things and some rough roads, and each of them have taught us things that are invaluable to who we are. There are times when we don't know why we are going through the things that we are going through. We pray and pray and nothing seems to change no matter how hard we pray. We take inventory of our situation and think that we are doing all the things that we are supposed to do, but there are still trials and tribulations that we are forced to face. Solomon in all of his Godly wisdom reminds us that, to everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the Heaven. I encourage you today to remember that no matter what it is that you are going through, it is only for a season. You want a bad season to end quick, and a good season to last forever. Just because we have just had a good season does not mean that next season is going to bad, or next season is going to be great. Just as nature has winter, spring, summer and fall, life has seasons of its own. There is a purpose for everything God does, and God knows what He is doing, you may not know or even like what He is doing, but God knows what He is doing, and there is a purpose for what God is doing in your life. You have prayed and God has heard your prayers, and He knows exactly what you need. Just know, you may cry now but there is a time to laugh. You may lose some things, but there is a time to get. You may even be mourning now but there is a time to dance. There is a purpose for everything God does, and there is a purpose for your life. This is your season and it is a great season. I thank God for the seasons of my life and the next season is going to be my greatest. Since God is changing my season for my good I am confident, "It’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!"
Lord let this next season be filled with all of the great blessings you have for my life, and the next season after that to be the greatest season of my life. Through every season keep me and bless me. In Jesus Name, amen.
