Reason For The Season
No matter what I set out to do my pain keeps interrupting. Its really hard to sit still when it’s hard to sit period. Its really hard to concentrate on anything when the pain is constantly grinding my nerves. I wish more than anything I could get this pain out of my life. Yet, I’m left to trust God still has a plan even now.
This is the first season of my life where the pain just won’t go away. Sure I’ve had some hurts, fears, and griefs in the past. But, nothing that ever affected me morning, day and night for so long. I’m in a season of life that I’ve never experienced. Full of soul searching, heartache, healing and pain. The only way I can see to navigate through this season is by faith.
Some of you find yourself in a prolonged season of pain. You aren’t sure if it will ever go away. It affects you morning, day and night. You long to return to life as normal, but things may never be the same again. By faith, you’ve got to trust God as much with this season as you have with past seasons. Trust me, it’s the only way to move forward. God has a reason for the season.
“For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. A time to be born and a time to die. A time to plant and a time to harvest. A time to kill and a time to heal. A time to tear down and a time to build up. A time to cry and a time to laugh. A time to grieve and a time to dance. A time to scatter stones and a time to gather stones. A time to embrace and a time to turn away. A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. A time to tear and a time to mend. A time to be quiet and a time to speak. A time to love and a time to hate. A time for war and a time for peace.
What do people really get for all their hard work? I have seen the burden God has placed on us all. Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.” (Ecclesiasties 3:1-11)
