Right now we're going through an interesting season of life, as we work in different ways to help Tiffany, our daughter get through what's equivalent to a school year to become a Medical Assistant. It's a rather challenging time, as Deb's work is random hours during weekdays, and heavy on weekends. I have to discipline myself to get enough sleep during weekdays, and I must admit, I'm drinking extra caffeine through coffee, lately.
Season of life come and go. I want to do well before God during this season, and we count it a joy to help Tiffany through this time. It would be nice if we could avoid certain inconveniences, though we think nothing of it.
This time will come and go. It's an opportunity to be a blessing wherever we're at, and particularly in Tiffany's life.
When we consider characters in the Bible, not least of which is Jesus, they went through different seasons of life as well. Some longer, some shorter seasons. It's interesting to see what they were up to during those times and how God worked through it all.
Some seasons can be most difficult. It could be a season of struggling with a particular sin or just struggling in general. Other seasons can be rather exhilerating, as when in fellowship and ministry to and with others. Along with the challenges that certainly come with that.
Let's be aware and look at life as opportunities in these "seasons" to learn to love God more by seeking to follow Christ more closely. And learning to love others more in the way of Christ, as well. Hopefully these will be seasons of growth to God's glory so that we more and more see God's kingdom in Jesus at work in and through our lives.
What might you add to this about "seasons of life"?
