For A Season

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- March 21, 2013

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. Ecclesiastes 3:1

Most everything in life is for a season. Jobs are for a season. Relationships are for a season. Hobbies are for a season. Homes are for a season. Small children and teenagers are for a season. Grandchildren are for a season. Youth is for a season.  Economic upturns and downturns are for a season. Family vacations are for a season. Formal education is for a season. Income generating years are for a season. Good health is for a season. Life on earth is for a season.

Perhaps you find yourself in a season within a season. You are eager to move on to a new stage of life, but the Lord still has lessons for you to learn before you transition. Or, you may not want to let go of where you are for fear of what lies ahead in the next chapter of your life. Either way, Jesus will show you the right way, and He will walk with you through the process. So, enjoy this season (do not wish it away), slow down, engage with God and all He wants you to experience.

Even the stork in the sky knows her appointed seasons, and the dove, the swift and the thrush observe the time of their migration. But my people do not know the requirements of the Lord. Jeremiah 8:7

What does the Lord require of you in this season? You have an 18 year span of time for your child to be under your roof and under your direct influence and authority. Now is the time to travel less at work or not at all, so you can be all there for your son or daughter. Moreover, it is stressful as a mom to give 24/7 emotionally, physically and spiritually. But, your sacrificial love carries Christ’s love into the life of your child.  Yes, the intensity of parenting is for a season.

Is it time to let go of your role at work? It may be better stewardship for a leader with a different gift mix to be responsible. Don’t wear out your welcome. It’s better to transition out on friendly terms than to be forced out in resentment. The peak of your performance is the best time to prepare for a new season of service. Wisdom watches for the winds of change and rides them on the wings of faith. Hold this season with an open hand and your next season will be significant!

Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are his. He changes times and seasons; he deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning. Daniel 2:20-21

Prayer: Heavenly Father, give me the patience to enjoy You and others in this season of waiting.

    Your message today really blessed my heart. It is a confirmation of where God has me. This is but a season for me, and sometimes it is difficult for us to recognize when we are in a season. Your prayer was just perfect for me as well. Thank you for allowing God to use you to minister and speak his word to me. It is a Blessing to my spirit.

      Socrotiff you are welcome. God has got you in His hand during this season and He is trustworthy. Keep your eyes on Jesus!

      A fellow servant of Christ,

  3. I am the proprietor of JustCBD brand (justcbdstore.com) and am planning to grow my wholesale side of business. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I thought that the most effective way to accomplish this would be to reach out to vape companies and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if anyone could suggest a trusted website where I can get CBD Shops Business Data I am already looking at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the best selection and would appreciate any guidance on this. Or would it be easier for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

  4. There’s certainly a great deal to know about this topic. I really like all of the points you made.

  5. Hi, I do think this is a great web site. I stumbledupon it 😉 I will come back once again since i have book marked it. Money and freedom is the best way to change, may you be rich and continue to guide others.

  6. Good post. I absolutely love this site. Thanks!

    I’m impressed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. The problem is something too few people are speaking intelligently about. Now i’m very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something relating to this.
