To Everything There is a Season

“To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1

There is a time for exactly where you are – whether it is a time of healing, a time of questioning, a time of excitement, a time of confusion, a time of doubt, a time of laughing, a time of dancing, or even a time in between.

Maybe, if you’re like me, it is a time for planning and planting. This season is full of school and studying for my degree, full of wedding planning and also planning for my new life and new “normal.” If you are also in a busy season of life like the one I’m in, sometimes it can feel like you’re dropping the ball on some things in order to keep others up in the air. Maybe some of your friendships aren’t as strong as they used to be because you have to spend more time studying. Maybe you’ve had to put some hobbies on hold so that you can put your future first. In these times we must remember that “to everything there is a season.”

Accepting your season instead of feeling bad about it is one way to calm your heart and mind. There will be a time when school is over, weddings will be over, and life will start a brand new season. That may be the season where you pick things up where you left off, whether it be with friends or hobbies or anything else you’ve had to put on the back burner. During all seasons we should stay grateful, faithful, and supportive of one another. Learn from your seasons and be able to look back on them as teachable times. After all, every moment of your life is a time that has been handpicked by God. Maybe you are anxiously awaiting a season that has not yet started in your life. Maybe you feel stuck in a rut and are wishing for a change of scenery. Wherever you are and whatever you are feeling, be ready to trust in His timing. Embrace the season you are in and everything going on in your life right now, because in the blink of an eye, at can all change.

What season are you in? Evaluate, accept, and embrace the season. And remember, don’t get too comfortable, because every season is just that – a season.

Life Lessons From 2 Corinthians 12:10

“That is why I take such pleasure in weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and difficulties for Christ’s sake, for when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10 is a…

“That is why I take such pleasure in weaknesses, insults, hardships, persecutions, and difficulties for Christ’s sake, for when I am weak, then I am strong.” 2 Corinthians 12:10 is a tough verse to swallow.

Weakness, insults, hardships, persecutions and difficulties do not sound like things that I take pleasure in. In fact, those are things that most of us do our very best to avoid. But, these are things that keep us humble. They are also things that help us appreciate the good times that God has provided us and the joy that is ahead in our futures. Some of the most joy-filled people I know have gone through incredibly tough times. They got through them by relying on God’s wisdom and trusting in His plan, and they came out of the hardship stronger than they were before. Getting through hard times is all about our mindset. If you look at those times as opportunities to become stronger both in your faith and in other areas of your life, then those weaknesses become your strength.

The weaker I get, the stronger I become.

“When the time is right, I, the Lord, will make it happen.”- Isaiah 60:22. Humans are impatient. It is one of my biggest weaknesses! We start to feel hopeless if something isn’t happening for us right away, or we get impatient with God and start questioning Him.

When things aren’t happening the way you thought they would, or when things aren’t happening in the timing that you

biblehoped, it can be frustrating. We are impatient, and we want things now. But, God knows when the time is right. He knows every detail of your life, and His timing is better than anything we could ever hope for on our own. As Isaiah 60:22 says, when the time is right, God will make it happen. And you know what? That is an awesome thing to look forward to!

Instead of becoming impatient when life doesn’t go the way we plan, we can look forward to the future and trust in His perfect plam for our lives.

Keep the faith!

What are the desires of your heart? Do you desire to travel? To fall in love? To serve on a mission trip? To have career success in life? We all have different desires! Want to know the one way that you can attain them? Through Jesus.psalm

Psalm 37:4 says “Delight yourself in the Lord, and He will give you the desires of your heart.” What does delighting yourself in the Lord mean? It means spending time with Him and treating Him like one of your best friends. Going to Him with your problems like you would a friend and taking Him along with you everywhere you go, even if it is to the grocery store or to school. God wants to be your “person.” He wants you to delight in Him! When you make Him the person who gives you the most joy in life, he will give you the desires of your heart.

I have seen this come true in my own life! I have found that in the times that I am closest to God, I see that my desires are fulfilled and he makes me content. Delight yourself in the Lord, it will do amazing things in your life!
