Those who know me well are very aware that I have a favorite season. That season is anything over 70 degrees. My least favorite season is anything cooler. I am happiest when spring arrives since I know that it will usually be about ten months before I will have to deal with cold temperatures.
In a similar way, our lives are also divided into seasons with some being more comfortable than others. As we get older, we can look back and clearly distinguish the beginning and end of each one. So, how should we react as we move through these chapters of our lives? Here are a few suggestions:
– Make the most of the season you are in. Glean from every day what God is attempting to show you and then apply it to your life. This is part of the maturing process as a Christian.
– Be alert for God-sent opportunities. If we believe that God orchestrates the events in our lives, then we also should believe that it isn’t His will that we wander through each day oblivious to what He is attempting to accomplish through us.
– Attempt to positively impact others you come in contact with for Christ. It could be that a person may move into and out of your life during a particular season, never to pass that way again. We should empower our effectiveness on others with love for our fellow man.
One of my favorite Psalms is the very first one. In Psalms 1:3, it says, “And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”
This verse is one that should guide us as we navigate through the days, months, and years of our assigned time on this earth. May we endeavor to live each moment for His glory.
