Seasons of Life

Seasons come and go, flowers blooming, trees fading. But what of our seasons, the seasons of our lives? As the seasons of the year go by we take appropriate measures to face them, the heat of summer, the cold of winter, or the rains of fall and spring. So how do we prepare for our own seasons? New chapters are being written in our lives often, whether it's moving to a new town or starting a new job, or meeting new people, or saying goodbye to a loved one, sometimes forever. How do we deal with the seasons of our lives? I find it easiest to sit and pray, to leave it to God. He knows what's coming, He is never surprised. Ask God for His guidance and help and you can face every season of your life, though it may not be easy, but you will always have Him by your side, guiding you through.

Just a thought.

Trusting God

Yesterday I would have given anything to just be able to crawl into a hole and die. I had received some bad news and was very depressed over it. I was praying last night and was reminded of my life verse, Habakkuk 3:17-19 (which I'll not put here as it is so long), and I was reminded that no matter what happens, no matter how bad things get, I can call on the Lord and He will be there for me. I'm still not particularly thrilled about everything that happened yesterday, but I feel so much better knowing that God will help me through it, I just need to trust in Him.
