John 5:35 says, He was a burning and a shining light: and ye were willing for a season to rejoice in his light.
During this time of the year it’s the fall season and with that comes those nice cool days when you can wear a light jacket. It’s that season when our mind shifts from long days of summer to preparation for pumpkin patches and homemade cider.
We also encounter those seasons when it is dry and seems like no matter what we do there’s no moisture in the air for us. The flip side of that is that if we wait patiently we can literally smell the rain coming, and out of nowhere we are showered down blessings we can’t even catch up.
For everything there is a season, and just like that I think we go through seasons in our maturity. I know for me I have had this mindset that I don’t have anything prove anymore. What am I saying? I’m saying that there was a point in my life that I always looked-for perfection, rather it was me giving it or expecting it from others. Talk about a roller coaster ride that was. I had to look myself in the mirror and ask, “what are you trying to prove?” I didn’t have a clue. That’s when I stopped trying to prove something to myself and others. Believe me it didn’t happen overnight it was years of process. I had to let go of the ropes and allowing the Lord Jesus to take control.
I’m enjoying a lot of seasons in my life over the years, seasons of being a grandparent, mother, wife, ministering to people and especially loving and serving my Lord. Yes, I don’t always have showers all the time but rather they are showers or dry days, I’m in a season that I never been before and I am living life like never before.
How about you? What season are you in? And what did you learn in your seasons?
