Seasons of life

A friend sent these thoughts to me today, and they resonated with me so much that I wanted to share them here. As we travel along on our personal journeys, it's easy to get frustrated when we don't feel like we're making the progress we should. According to Joel and Victoria, the key is not to lose ground or stop trying. As long as we're working as hard as we can and staying focused on what's important, we'll get there. Regardless of where we are in life, those words can definitely inspire. I know they've inspired me!

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria
God has set up seasons in our lives. It’s easy to get frustrated when our dreams aren’t coming to pass on our timetable, but every season is not harvest season. There are plowing seasons. There are planting seasons. There are watering seasons. Sure, we would love for every season to be a time of increase left and right, good breaks here and there. But without the other seasons, we wouldn’t be prepared. For example, it’s during the plowing seasons that God brings issues to light that we need to deal with. He’s getting us prepared for promotion.
If you’re not making as much progress as you would like, the key is to not lose any ground. Don’t go backwards. Hold your position. Keep a good attitude and do the right thing even when it’s hard. When you do that, you are passing the test, and God promises that your due season of harvest is coming. Be encouraged because your appointed time of increase, favor and promotion is on its way, and He will fulfill every dream and desire He’s placed within your heart. Remember, harvest is coming!
