A Time For Everything 

A Time for EverythingECC.3:1 There is a time for everything,

    and a season for every activity under the heavens:
The secret to knowing the peace that God offers is to discover, accept and appreciate that God is the only one with perfect timing. 

Being a child of God is amazing because it means that no matter what season of life we find ourselves in, we can choose to celebrate and honor God in the midst of it. 

We can make a choice to grow in the fullness of God and recognize the wondrous season God has plopped you in. As you are appreciating the season, no matter what it is, you are becoming more like your Creator. 

We all have our favorite seasons. 

Some like the new beginnings that spring offers. 

Summer is a favorite of others because of the opportunity to enjoy long sunny days. 

Fall can bring people happiness because of cooler temperatures, colorful leaves and bountiful crops. 

Still others love winter for blazing fires, warm clothes and snuggle blankets. 

EVERY SEASON IS HANDCRAFTED BY GOD FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE, the season you are experiencing is no different. 

Some seasons are more fun and comfortable than others. Some we enjoy, some not so much. But each season provides an opportunity to learn something more about ourselves and our God. 

If we weather the storm, we sometimes get to see our God reveal himself as miraculous and wonderful right before our eyes. . 

We don’t always get to choose the seasons we experience in life, but we can choose to know that God is there with us. 

There are times we simply don’t understand the season we are in. However, knowing God trumps knowing answers. 

No matter the season bestowed upon you. Take a moment to thank God and ask Him to reveal Himself to you.

When It Is Time For Change

A Time For Everything
Part Four
A Time to Transition
For some change is exciting, easy and keeps our lives interesting. For the rest of us the unknown is scary, intimidating, and way out of our comfort zone.
However, there is one thing change is and that is inevitable.
When you come to the realization (whether it be comfortable or not) that God is telling you this season is over and it is time to uproot from the field where you have been planted, there is one way to make the transition easier to tolerate.
Remember that God is the Alpha and Omega. Isn’t that a comforting thought? God is the beginning of everything we experience and God is the ending of all we experience. Common sense would tell you that means He is all throughout the middle of our transitions also.
Let’s look at what the word transition means. To transition is to change, evolve, move, and shift or to have a conversion.
That could full well mean that to have an effective God driven transition there may be areas in our lives that we need to rework if we see we are not on track with what God has planned for us.

The only way to determine this is to seek God in a humble, submissive and true way. Consider where you have been and where God is leading you and decide to submit to His destination.
It is during this inner study that you may discover that God’s plan is far different from anything you were considering. It is also safe to bet that the work God is doing in you is far more exquisite than anything you ever imagined.
Go ahead, Just Do It, if God is in control it will be better than you ever imagined.
