Scripture of the Week:

Ecclesiastes 3:1 – “ There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.”

Thought of the Week:

You ever give notice to trees in each season of the year?  Summer they bear the most leaves, giving off oxygen into the environment. Whereas, in the winter time they do the complete opposite, and would leave one to feel they have no purpose. After a bit of research, I learned they are merely hibernating and preparing for the upcoming seasons in order to produce even more thriving leaves.

Do you ever feel one moment you are actively displaying and know your purpose,  then boom out of nowhere you enter a time (season) where it “appears” you have no purpose at all? May this scripture reassure you, there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity. Just as the tree does not lose its identity in being a tree throughout the seasons, do not lose your identity in being a child of God throughout your seasons under the heavens.

Challenge of the Week:

Write out what type of season you feel like you are currently experiencing and try to recall two past seasons. Take note of what God was doing in those past seasons and what you would like him to do in this current season of your life

Prayer of the Week:

Lord we give you all the honor, praise, and glory for each and every season and time in our lives. We pray that you groom us in knowing how to take from all these moments the things you desire to pour into us. May we not get so bogged down or discouraged that we lose sight of your constant goodness. In your sweet name we pray Lord, Amen.
