Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.”
God places these seasons in our hearts and in our lives for specific reasons. We don’t always see it. We would
Each season in our spiritual lives are different because we grow to the next one. Not one season will be exact repeat of one we faced before. We can’t reverse the growth we had or turn back because we don’t like the season we are facing. We grow through these seasons, carefully pruned and trimmed by our Creator to reach our full potential.
Instead of complaining about a condition in our season we don’t like, rather pray and ask: “Father, what do You want to teach me about this season?” How beautiful to know that, even the “not so good” seasons, have been carefully placed in our lives to make us stronger. To learn the heart of God and to bring us closer to Him.
