For Everything There is a Season

He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart, yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end.

Ecclesiastes 3:11


I live a very blessed and happy life. My children are well, my marriage is strong, and my health is excellent.

And yet, I go through seasons — just like everyone else.

The more difficult seasons in life can seem hopeless when you’re out of sync with God. Every wrong decision seemingly leads to a bigger problem. And you often feel like you’re drowning in quicksand without a lifeline.

But the good news is — you have access to the ultimate lifeline. And as long as you’re still breathing, you can ask God for help.

Ask Him for patience, and tell Him how much you love Him for bringing you through the trials that you’re facing.

Then thank Him for clearing a path for your journey towards a more fruitful season.

Whatever you do, always remember that God is in command of all seasons, so no matter the season you’re in, God is making everything beautiful in its time.
