01.06.17 I have a word on my heart for someone today. What is the value of remaining steady? I am supposed to remind someone, that we go through different seasons of our lives. Just like there are 4 seasons in nature, a tree doesn’t have fruit falling off the tree all year round. A tree actually gains strength in its winter season, its roots are strengthening for the new season ahead.
God reminded me of this scripture: Psalms 1:2-3 … whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season.
I have decided in my own life to be content in whatever season I find myself. Preparation and strengthening time is never wasted time and it is very necessary for the sprints in our lives.
Even in the beauty of nature, which God created, trees have seasons where strength is happening underground where no one sees. Flowers have seasons of blooms, and then the next flower blooms.
I also see in this example that there is room for all of Gods gifts and colors. When you think about how many different kinds of flowers and trees there are… all with different climates and blooming times. I believe so it is in our lives…. In the beautiful garden of Gods people, we all bloom in seasons and it makes for the most amazing flower beds.
May this be an encouragement for someone today. If you are in the winter or fall season and things seem quiet, I want you to know there is huge value in remaining steady. Please know that this time is actually preparing you for what is ahead.
God bless you in all parts of your journey. God smiles when He thinks of you, His beautiful creation.
