A New Season…
Spring is a wonderful time of year! As my husband and I took a familiar walk
around the Rez earlier today, we could see many trees budding with leaves
opening on many. It is a beautiful sight! Even the often-dreaded dandelions
looked attractive as they decorated the green grass. I often think how amazing
our God is… even what we call “weeds” can look so pretty. Yes, tis the season for
beauty and new life!
Our lives have seasons…
Whether we like it or not, our lives are filled with seasons. Some we anxiously
look forward to while others we just as soon skip over. None the less, that is not
how it works. We go through seasons raising children, in our careers, in our
physical body, in our relationships. We cannot escape them but what we do
through these seasonal times makes all the difference in our lives and in those
closest to us.
There is a time for every season…
Ecclesiastes 3:1 states, “There is a time for everything, and a season for every
activity under the heavens."
I have never seen a winter that did not end, nor a Spring that did not arrive. For
those that hate the cold, the appearance of that first snowflake floating down
does not produce warm, fuzzy feelings. None the less, we must accept the fact
that winter has arrived. The same with life seasons, even though some create
feelings that are far from warm or fuzzy, we must work with them and embrace
the fact that it has arrived.
Committing to the Lord…
Committing each season, that comes your way, whether good or bad, to the Lord,
will immensely help you to maneuver through it. Even though it seems like a
forever time, be reminded that every season ends and a new one will always
begin. Trust in the Lord, commit this time to Him, knowing He will definitely walk
with you throughout every season of your life
