God’s word says there is a time and a season for everything (and everyone) under the heavens. As it is with the climate where we experience a change of seasons periodically during the year, so it is with our lives. We all experience seasons at one time or the other in our lives. What season are you experiencing today?
For some of us, we may be experiencing seasons of drought, for some it is a season of tears, still for some, ours may be a season of heartbreak and disappointment by the people we love. Whatever it is you are going through right now, don’t despair – because just like the climate you will surely experience a season of sunshine; of blessings; of breakthroughs; of love; of laughter. You just need to hang on, and not give up faith.
Perhaps you are reading this and thinking, “This can’t happen to me. I have been facing this season for too long now.” “There’s no hope for me at all”, and so on. I want you to know that miracles do happen. And no matter how long and dark a night is, there will certainly be day break. There’s always sunshine after the rainfall – but then even the rain has its purpose, it wasn’t at all wasted.
With this in mind, instead of crying and complaining about the hardship seasons, the disappointments, let us try and look for the gold in our present conditions. Remember the scripture says for everything there is a purpose. So let us seek for the lessons embedded inside our present conditions. In my own life, I have faced and experienced difficulties too. Many times I have been laughed at and looked down upon, but in spite of everything, I try to always ask, “What lessons am I to learn from this situation?” “What is the purpose of this challenge?
You see with this new attitude, I can find a way to laugh rather than cry, because it gives me a new perspective to view life. And even when I cannot find immediate answers to my questions, I am confident in the truth that just like climatic seasons, my life seasons must pass and give way to refreshing ones. And I know yours will come too. Live your greatest life!
