A PIECE ON SEASONS OF LIFE
Some seasons in life can feel like something else. You feel confined,
limited, and impatient as you wait for divine intervention in your
situation. It’s as if you are in a “season between seasons.”
What can you do when you find yourself between seasons?
Work on improving what you know for sure:
Sometimes, the waiting room is the perfect place to go back to the basics. Ask yourself some tough questions such as…
What am I doing here?
How did I get here?
Why do I do what I do?
Is God calling me to something better?
Then, recall what you know to be true. Biblically, what can you declare
with absolute certainty? Doing this can strengthen your heart and give
clarity for the season ahead. It may be as simple as reciting the
foundational truths that established your faith in the first place.
Some of my favorite absolutes are:
> In the beginning was the Word.
> Through Him all things were made.
> We love because He first loved us.
> Jesus took his last breath and said, “It is finished.”
> On the third day He rose again.
> Jesus is coming back to receive His own.
By remembering who God is, what He has done and what He will do, our
“season between seasons” can become less drudgery and more of a holy
place of rest and replenishment.
When we ask things according to His will and not our own, wonderful
things happen. And the best part is, we will KNOW that we are in the
exact place He wants us to be.
Seek help with a heart of “not my will but Your will Oh Lord!”
