For everything there is a season.
I remember my beautiful life in Springfield, Missouri. There are times when I miss my life there. Yes, God had showed His love for me and fulfilled His promises for me and relocated me to Australia- but I find myself melancholic at times. It’s winter here in Melbourne and I remember how much I used to love walking, praying, writing and being inspired by the changing of the seasons. God used the past 5 years to awaken my soul intensely. It wasn’t easy at all, but He brought the day long awaited. The day I could rejoice for all my pain, confusion, and sorrow. I married the man of my dreams, Raul Marian and I am so thankful. I love the different seasons. Why do you think God made the earth that way? Right when you fall in love with spring, it’s summer, then fall, then winter. Nothing is forever in this life and God wants us to always be looking to Him and not to temporary things, even though they are necessary and can be good. BUT GOD IS THE ULTIMATE FULFILLMENT AND JOY. I can’t believe I’m writing this post! There are days when I miss my lonely times of prayer in nature because now I know God was there every second of my journey. I still find myself asking my husband, “Is this a dream?” Life is absolutely breathtaking with God and if you fight to stay close and to follow His will, He will make your life a beautiful season, no matter what season this earth is in.
For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
