Ask God…to help you manage your time better. We all have the same amount of time in every day. Exactly 24 hours. Tonight we actually lose an hour of time that we gained back in October. Spring forward…to the next season in time! As we ride up the road this morning to pick up our daughter and go to the mountains I reflect on life. The trees are all grey and it is a cool crisp morning. But…in just a few weeks or so the trees will start blooming beautiful purple, white and pink blooms and the daffodils are coming up and will turn yellow. The grass will turn a lush green again!
There has been a time in my life when I didn’t or couldn’t see the beauty of the world because all I could see was my circumstances. I never knew what was going to happen next and my heart would hurt so bad. My marriage was falling apart and everything just seemed hopeless. I was a Christian and would think to myself that “this wasn’t suppose to happen to me”. Spring forward…there is life after pain! Life is full of seasons and THIS TOO SHALL PASS!! IT DID!!
I don’t want to waste my life and just wish my life was different or wish I was something I am not. I want to be what and who God wants me to be! He has a plan specifically picked out just for me and a plan for you too! Sometimes…we have to go through a hard season but hope is found in and through Jesus Christ! He will pick your feet up and put them on solid ground. Seek Him! Trust Him!
We all have the exact same amount of time. How are you managing yours? Don’t waste what God has given you. Don’t focus on things or circumstances that you may not be able to change. The grey trees will turn to beauty and will be vibrant again, just as God wants to turn your darkness into beauty again and bring joy to your life! It’s JUST a season! Spring forward! New life is coming!!
“For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven. What is happening now has happened before, and what will happen in the future has happened before, because God makes the same things happen over and over again.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 15 NLT)
