It’s February 12th and hard to believe we are almost halfway through the second month of 2017 already. It has been unseasonably warm the past week or so (even for Arizona standards) and felt more like late spring, than the middle of winter. Football season is officially over, and basketball season for college and the pro’s is just starting to heat up. The Grammy’s are happening tonight, and Spring Break for most people is less than four weeks away. Most of these are indicators we are entering into a new season. For me, every year when I’m entering into new seasons on the calendar it always gets me thinking of bigger seasons in life that we encounter.
What season of life are you in? What season of life is your family in? Your career? Your church?
There is a season for everything. Are you recognizing the times and seasons that you’re in? Or are you trying to stop the inevitable changes of life? If you resist the seasons you lose. Are you trying to birth something that should die? Build something that should be torn down? Keep something that should be thrown away? Be quiet when it is the season for speaking up?
Check out what Solomon says…
There’s an opportune time to do things, a right time for everything on the earth: a right time for birth and another for death, a right time to plant and another time to reap, a right time to kill and another time to heal, a right time to destroy and another to construct, a right time to cry and another time to laugh, a right time to lament and another to cheer, a right time to make love and another time to abstain, a right time to embrace and another to part, a right time to search and another to count your losses, a right time to hold and another to let go, a right time to rip out and another to mend, a right time to shut up and another to speak up, a right time to love and another to hate, a right time to wage war, and another to make peace. (Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 MSG)
In our lives, there is a season for everything. What season are you in?
