Seasons In Life ...

Didn't we all love it when the meadows looked like this?
Just a week ago I said I would share a post that closely relates to what I had mentioned in my Calling over Comfort post. Here it is:
Someone once said to me, "you have to accept seasons in your life". This was after discussing with them something I had been going through at the time. In brief, it related to the verse read in the book of Esther 4:14 - " ...Yet who knows maybe it was for a time like this that you were made queen"
For a long time (six months approximately) I held on so much to the 'maybe it was for a time like this'. 
In hindsight, I was right in saying that for I knew God's plans were not to harm me but to prosper me and to bring a future I hoped for [as read in Jeremiah 29 vs 11]. But what I didn't realise was that in the process of holding on to that moment I was actually blocking myself from the general ability to simply experience the different seasons we go through in life.
Much like here in England and many other countries, we have autumn, winter, spring and summer at different times of the year. We don't quite stop when one season ends and another starts, we get on with it, change our wardrobes etc.
However in my case, I had completely stopped and I was just there waiting on God, believing there was something more to the season he had brought me into and actually not getting on with life and probably discovering more along the way. And when my friend said to me, "you have to accept seasons in your life" that simply made me realise that there is not always so much more to where you are in your life but maybe to where you are going in life.
Now I have simply come to learn that this is just another season in my life I am going through and will continue to do so until it eventually comes to an end and I move on to the next one. Most importantly, I think I don't hold on to the 'now moment' expecting more than there is compared to how I used to. I also just try to pray about the seasons in my life, taking hid of God's voice as much as I can.
Going into the days ahead, I simply want to encourage us not stop in the 'now moment' but instead to look forward to life's different seasons as we journey along.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and I pray you have a blessed week.
Recognise what season you are in and roll with it!
