There is a time for everything.
“For everything, there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven.”
Every cold season eventually turns warm. Every storm runs out of rain.
It’s the middle of January and we have experienced many seasons this month, at least here in Texas. This past weekend we had flooding rain, gusty winds, and cold temperatures. Yet today we have beautiful sunny skies and warmer temps. In such a short period of time, God has given us a break in the clouds.
The same is true for life, we have different seasons in life. Right in the middle of a hard season, God will give us a sunny, warmer day. It may not mean the season is completely over but he gives a little break and lets us know that HE is still there.
It’s inevitable that sometimes this life is going to let us down and things are not going as we wish. It’s important to remember that in these difficult times that God will bless us with moments of relief. Just like winter gives way to Spring, every hard time gives way to better times.
Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God.
2 Corinthians 1: 3-4
Sometimes these difficult seasons seem like they will never end but they will. A lot of times after the storm itself is over there is still much prayer, healing and work to be done.
I always try to remember Job. He had it rough and never cursed God or left God.
His wife said to him, “Are you still maintaining your integrity? Curse God and die!” He replied, “You are talking like a foolish woman. Shall we accept good from God, and not trouble?” In all this, Job did not sin in what he said.
Life may seem like you’re in the depths of winter, but your season will change and Spring will come forth. God is consistent and uses everything for good. If you’re struggling, going through a difficult season, remember God’s timing is better than ours.
We must learn and grow from our difficult seasons.
Think about it, if Spring comes to early it could get hit by a cool snap and kill all of the good.
Wait on the Lord’s timing, Your spring is coming!
I have been in a long difficult season and God has given me breaks with sunshine and relief for short times.
I am ready for a rainbow!🌈
Isn’t it something how even we as adults get excited when we see a rainbow in the sky.
God keeps his promises!
