Today I am linking up with Madison and Rachel for one of my favorite linkups, Community Brew. This months theme is seasons, so today I am sharing with you a little bit about what I have learned in my different seasons of life.
What has God taught you about seasons in life?
God has taught me so much about seasons of life, first I think that sometimes it's so easy to lose sight of whats ahead especially when your in a season of waiting, uncertainty, or struggle. He's taught me that he always meets me where I'm at no matter what I am going through, he is right there walking through it with me. Even in those seasons of waiting. He's taught me that he has a purpose for every season of my life and through that I find beauty in the season.
How have you learned to move from one season to another?
Moving from one season to another, has been all about prayer and soaking up his word. Joshua 1:9 says, "This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” I find comfort in this verse in each season of life that I am in.
What is your current season in life and how are you learning to grow in that season?
My current season of life is a mix of singleness and pursuing my graduate degree in Counseling. In my singleness I am learning what it means to be content in it even though there is huge desire on my heart to be married one day and have a family of my own, but I know that God has a plan for it all. I am also learning to rest in him and give of time to others, and work on investing in them. I'm not saying that singleness is a bed of roses and that I don't struggle with it sometimes, I know it's hard. But I do know that despite the "hot mess" days God is right there pursuing me, that is where the real beauty is.
In pursuing my degree, God is shaping me into the godly women that he wants me be so that I can help others in their struggle and show his love to them in return.
"butthey who wait for theLordshall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wingslike eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint."
I love this verse because it truly captures what it is to be in a season of life where we are waiting, struggling, etc. It reminds me of a song by Francesca batisttelli, He knows my Name. If you have a chance listen below and know that God is always with you no matter what season of life you are in.
