Times & Seasons of Life

When it comes to the changing of the seasons - we all have personal preferences. But I was reminded this morning, that the Lord makes every season for specific reasons, and every season He makes is good. We simply need to learn what His reasons for each season may be.

Though we may not like certain seasons of life (wilderness, tests, trials, etc) - the fact is - God makes them all, and places them in our lives for a specific purpose. In retrospect, the less-than-appreciated seasons have been some of the best times of my life, because they have resulted in the greatest periods of growth, maturity and discovery of how much He loves me. 

So, instead of fighting against, or grumbling through the less-than-appreciated times of our lives, maybe we should try to discover God's purposes in them, learn to appreciate and discover the beauty within each and every season of our lives. After all, if the Author of our lives chose to place them there, then we should rejoice and be glad in every one of them - for we know His plans for us are good. (Jer. 29:11)
