Tis' the Season

Ecclesiastes 3:1, "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven."

We live our lives seasonally based and similar to the nature seasons, some seasons we don't look forward to embracing. Every season is a season and when we decide to walk for the Lord, we have to simply take the bad with the good. The Bible says, to everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven. Meaning, in each season of our life there are transitions that have to transpire to bring forth the purpose of the season. In our "winter" seasons, we should expect stand stills and for growth to come to a closure. Our winter season is necessary to allow us to reflect on the things that couldn't withstand the heat in our lives and we should use the winter seasons as a personal time to seek God for understanding on areas we need to work on to ensure that we have a productive spring. Our Spring seasons are those seasons where we are most productive and the seeds that we planted in spite of seeing fruition in other seasons come forth and  we are renewed spiritually and physically. In our Spring seasons, we have to cherish the moments and embrace the blessings and people that God has called forth to bless us. Spring seasons are also seasons where we should ensure that we are growing properly and are cultivating the gifts that God have rooted inside of us and share our "pollination" with those who didn't fall on good soil as we had. Our Summer Season, are the seasons where God takes us through the fire and forces us to separate from heavy baggage. Our summer seasons require us to pull from a "Source" that is able to rejuvenate us and protect us from the heat of our enemies. The Bible says we all have access to the Secret Place of the Most High God-a place where we can find protection under the "SON" of God. Psalm 91. Last, but not least, we all have to endure the Fall seasons, where it is difficult to withstand the storms and the separation of deadly leaves from our vines. Our fall seasons are necessary because they provide us with the expected harvest that those who live for Christ are owed. Harvest seasons are the surprise gifts that God bestows on our lives for planting ourselves on fertile ground and for enduring the seasons of heat, lukewarm folks, hurricanes, and human parasites. Embrace each season in expectancy mode of all that God has to give you according to His riches and Glory! Every season is a season and a purpose for God to equip you with His heavenly direction.
