Every season has its purpose; winter, spring, summer, fall. We can appreciate their uniqueness, see their beauty and find gratitude for their purpose. And even when we are ready for the season to end, we have hope for the next season that follows.
What if we took that same perspective and applied it to the different seasons of our lives?
What if we viewed every season in our lives as one that had purpose? What if we appreciated their uniqueness and looked for the beauty in them? What if instead of resisting them - especially the tough ones - we found gratitude and trusted they have a purpose?
Such a perspective would give us hope through the trials, the struggles, the changes.
No matter what season of life we are in today, I invite you to join me and...
Pause. Breathe. Pray.
May we believe that there is purpose in this season, even the challenging ones, and trust we need to go through this season for us to be prepared for the next; just as fall leads into winter, planting and nourishing the seeds for spring.
With love and hope,
"For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven." - Ecclesiastes 3:1
