The tulips and daffodils that are poking through the soil rejoice but the cement in the basement is not so sure.
Not every season has the same affect on everything. So true in our own lives.
He hath made everything beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end. Ecc3:11
Growth is required in every season, even if it means being buried and forgotten in the ground. And in the Spring when the tulips come into full bloom I am reminded that it didn't just happen overnight, there was a time of growing. In other to truly live they had to be under ground and even in there growth was required. There is a purpose behind every season we go through. "Contrary to what we often believe God doesn't make mistakes."
I know that, whatsoever God doeth, it shall be forever; nothing can be put to it, nor anything taken from it: and God doeth it, that men should fear before him. Ecc3:14
God determines the season of our lives, when to prune, when to feed, and when to harvest. God is always at work even when we don't see the results right away. Sometimes I ask myself why? why can't I understand this...
I am so thankful for His love! His love that whispers in my ear that I am His beloved mess. I am so thankful that He never gives up on me, because I am a slow learner. God's love is perfect for our imperfect life.
Let us be found faithful in every season, keeping in mind that He is enough to get us through.
O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who hath known the mind of the Lord? or who hath been his counsellor?
It's beyond me. His way's are higher! With the little understanding I have I choose to believe by His faith that He is bigger then all of my mess.
There is a time for everything!
