I love the fact that I can learn from the seasons. In the same way seasons change life also changes. I look out today to a blue sky and a sunny day but I go back months and I can remember the cloudy days,dark nights and cold winter nights of December.Where autumn was just in my dreams and summer was just a longing in my heart. I sit here in the sun, colourful flowers around and beautiful faces doing their thing…….. oh I love summer.
Just the same way you live in different seasons, life presents some winter moments where dreams seem to be dead, responsibilities seem to weigh you down and heaven seem to be quiet. You wake up and you long for quiet days and moments that can only be describe by the autumn season of september and the beautiful colours of a summer’s day. Your heart longs for those moment when you heard God’s voice so clear, those moment before time froze and your heart was left to find its way in the cold lonely nights.
I understand in theory we are able to deal with seasons because we know exactly when it’ll be over but life is different because it just plays out without a weather forcast. In facing life, truth be told you can’t quit, you’ve got to be audacious like Abraham who stayed his cause and who did not tip toe around God’s promise by asking cautiously skeptical question but plunged into the promise and came up strong, ready for God, sure that God will make good on what He has said (Romans 4:20 & 21 msg).
Through the rain, cold winter & dark nights of life, keep holding on and don’t dare give up. “It might be so cold and dark on the outside but make sure you keep the sun shining on your inside for if you lose within you lose without. There’s no battle won on the outside that wasn’t first won within.”
Keep your faith in God because that’s what stands even when all else fails.Keep holding through all the questions in your heart. Don’t pack up in winter because the winter is not all there is, stay strong you were born to weather every storm and thrive through every season.
To answer your heart question………….. Yes…….. The tide turns and the seasons change.
