As summer is ending and I start to see signs of fall, I can’t help but think about the seasons of life.
Some of you might be in the season where you have young children or maybe you have teenagers. Maybe your season is becoming an empty nester or maybe you’re enjoying the blessings of grandchildren.
Life is full of seasons. Some are joyous and some are difficult.
Whatever season you’re in, Nehemiah 8:10 is a good verse to remember, The Joy of the Lord is your Strength. We are never in a season without Jesus.
This quote by Beth Moore was written for young girls, but I think it can pertain to any stage in life.
Just like the four seasons come and go, so will different seasons of life come and go. Don’t despair! “This too shall pass.” is true in both sweet and bitter seasons of life.
While you don’t need to wish any of it away, remember to savor the sweet seasons, take the joy when it comes and stay faithful during the bitter seasons.
Worship in the good times and bad. Jesus will be faithful over and over and over again. It’s in the valleys that God develops your character.
Life is full of seasons and some are easier than others but all of them have a purpose and God’s building your character.
What season are you in right now? Are you allowing God to build your character?
I have played this video before but it’s so good it’s worth repeating. The song reminds me of seasons, the good and the bad. Life is a journey.
