Spring Time

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:”

‭‭Ecclesiastes‬ ‭3:1‬ ‭KJV‬‬

Hi friend and welcome back to another post!

If you’re from Sierra Leone like me, you know that there are two main seasons: rainy and dry season. If you’re living in the US (especially Midwest) also like me, then you know there are 4: summer, winter, fall and spring.

Regardless or where you live the interesting thing is that farmers (or people that try to grow things like myself 🙂) in both regions know/learn the best time for planting most crops in the soil.


As much as planting is attributed to seasons, so also can life. At a given point, we may be experiencing different seasons in our life.

Before I proceed any further, I’d like to ask the questions: what season of life do you feel like you’re currently in? Or do you feel like you might be in two different seasons?


Personally, here recently, I’ve felt like I’m in two different season. One day it feels like spring and the next feels like winter (literally and figuratively).

Perhaps you’re in a similar place right now. Maybe you’re thinking or worried about the things that haven’t happened yet or things that have happened and all that worry has got you upset, frustrated, sad, angry…

Isa 61:11 states: “For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth before all the nations.” KJV‬‬


In the preceding verses, the Lord is talking about His anointed and the restorative work He is going to be doing in their life. All of which creates HOPE!


While the verses were written specifically for the nation of Israel, if we are saved, we become the Lord’s anointed and therefore it is my understanding that the principles of these verses are applicable to us.


Living in the US and owner of a small garden, spring is important. Partly because that’s when most of the planting occur; and also because it signifies growth is coming and so is harvest (a little further out).


Conclusion

Friend, I don’t know what season of life you feel like you’re currently in, but I feel like God wants me to encourage someone with the thought that spring is just begun in your life. He is planting seeds through your pain, toil, heartache, difficulty, praise, humility… and if you will just hold on to His promises, God will cause righteousness and praise to come from you.


Challenge

Take 15 minutes each day this week to thank God for the seeds He is sowing into your life; and also thank Him for the future He has for you.


Meditate on Isaiah chapter 61.
