Today, we’re talking about changes. Right now we’re in the midst of a season change. The leaves are changing colors and we’ve just ended a beautiful summer and we’re into fall. With every season, it seems like we embrace it’s beginning. We love it, it’s beautiful, the changing of colors, the first snowfall. In Spring, the first bloom of flowers, and in summertime, we get to throw on shorts and sundresses and jump into the water. We love the beginning, and then we typically grow weary by the end of the season and think, “It’s never gonna stop raining,” or “I’m so done with the snow!” and we are ready for a change.
As a Mom, I have often felt that way in different seasons of my life, be it a difficult time in my marriage, or with my kids. Right now, I have three adult kids and one teenager. And there was a time when they were young, in diapers, and throwing toys all over the house that I thought, “This season is never going to end! I can’t do this forever!” And of course it did end and a new season began, but it’s hard not feeling stuck in the current season you are experiencing.
“During the difficult times, the one constant in my life, no matter what season, has been God.”
If you’re in a great season right now, maybe it’s a new change you’re loving, or if you’re in a difficult season in your life, know that season will come to an end. It will change. During the difficult times, the one constant in my life, no matter what season, has been God. Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” He is so faithful. He has been consistent my whole life, even when I am not. I encourage you to embrace the season you are in!
