Seasons

Ecclesiastes 3:1 - “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under Heaven:...” 

Winter has come and gone, once again; and ladies, Spring is here!  Have you noticed (and I am sure you have...) that the seasons never change their order?

Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall. 

Just as specific as God was with the order of each season, He is even more specific with the plan/order for our lives. 

In Daniel 2:21, we are reminded of God’s sovereignty in the midst of all seasons:  “He changes times and seasons: he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding;” 

What a powerful God we serve. Each of us is navigating different seasons of life. 

Seasons of: growth, grief, depth of understanding, longing for more, discomfort, new beginning, feeling lost, feeling found, ________________ (fill in your season). 

Whatever the season God is allowing you to grow through, understand that He sees you. He is with you, and He is growing you through purifying and disciplining your heart. 

Our lives are constantly shifting in one way or another, but The Word of God tells us that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Hebrews 13:8

Rest in our constant Savior today. There is peace in Him. 

I love you, and thank you for allowing me to worship with you this month!

How often do we find ourselves feeling pulled in too many directions, leaving little of us to truly honor the people and things we choose to devote our time and energy to? When I try to imagine what this strive for “worldly balance” looks like, I imagine a juggler or plate-spinner trying to keep things in perfect rhythm without dropping the ball (or plate, if you will). If you don’t know what I am referencing with plate-spinning, pause your reading and go look it up. Prepare to experience you...

Devotion over Distraction

How often do you find yourself talking to the Lord and all of a sudden catch yourself deep in a thought involving something that you’re anticipating - totally separated from your prayer? I often catch this happening on my commute to or from work, especially on those days that I hit snooze one too many times or try to squeeze in one more thing and don’t prioritize giving the Lord space to join me in the step-by-step parts of the day.

As I write this, I can’t help but imagine God’s presence with me like a loving father who has graciously been trying to help me solve a seemingly-tricky math problem on an assignment that I should have grasped a while ago. I can clearly envision Him giving me a warm smile and gently patting me on the back as the light bulb finally goes off in my head, and I feel so silly for not understanding the overall concept long before now. I hope this message resonates with my friends who grapple with d...
