In life, we all go through seasons. When we are going through the Fall season of our life, dead things are being stripped away. Things that no longer serve a purpose in our lives are taken away and never to be seen again. Sometimes we go through a season of barrenness (Old man Winter), in which it seems as if nothing is happening for us. It’s cold. It’s painful and we cannot see past what is in front of us. During this season, there is a lot of uncertainty and a lot of wondering when things will begin to turn around. But then comes good ol’ spring, giving us a renewed sense of hope. All the preparation that took place during the winter begins to manifest itself in the form of new dreams, visions and fresh beginnings. In spring, we continue to plant seeds and the storms of life come around to water them. It helps us to grow in order for us to operate in our summer season. Summer season is the best season of all. In this season, we thrive like never before. We take our newly, grown flowers and we share them with everyone else. We take our blessings, our lessons, our dreams and we share it with others in hopes that they would be encouraged and inspired.
Whatever season you might find yourself in at this point in your life, just know that it serves a purpose. Things may not always go the way you want them to go and the process may get hard during those fall and winter seasons. However, there is joy in knowing that our spring and summer seasons are a guarantee. God has not promised us that everyday will be a great day but what He has promised is that He will be with us wherever we go. He will never leave us or forsake us and we can always count on that. Therefore, that means He is walking with us through every season of our lives. Let’s trust him and ask that He would help us to learn during these seasons. Furthermore, lets ask Him to show us how we can encourage others through our seasonal transitions.
