Just like in the natural world around us, seasons change in the spirit. We can feel it in our bones when something is about to change. As believers, we long to keep our eyes open and not miss where God is and where he’s moving.
The past few seasons have been obvious: a season of new marriage and change, a season of adjustment, spiritual pruning, and now a season of expansion. A season of growth and maturity. I see the similar experiences happening to many other people around me and around the world.
Whether or not we see the changes, they are inevitable. Sometimes I’m excited for change but most of the time, I’m not a fan at all. I’ve had so many wonderful seasons in my life, I end up wanting to stay there forever and not leave. To be honest, it’s hard for me to see past the blessings and bliss of the moment to the future, and believe that there is a purpose for being there. And then I don’t seem to remember that I was so reluctant at one time to enter my current season- the one I am enjoying and loving so much…. When that happens, I don’t think I’ve ever felt so flawed and human in my life. How mankind-like is it of me when I can’t see past now, and simultaneously struggle with “lack of blessing” or “I can’t”. HA. HA. I wish my HAHA font could leap off the page to reflect the humor…
It’s June 1, and I’m on my knees every day giving my business, life, and marriage to the Lord. What blessings I have reaped.
I don’t know what seasons come next, but I know that everything in His Will is timely and for my good.
