As the weather is getting warmer and the flowers
are popping up, God is reminding me of seasons.
Our lives are built in seasons. We all go through seasons of pain, growth, and contentment as well as seasons of adventures, happiness, and joy. Sometimes, it changes with nature. Other times, it doesn’t. You can go through 3 personal seasons before nature runs the course of 1, or one season can last forever.
We are entering the season of rain and flowers. But without the rain, there would be no green grass or flowers.
This is Holy week in the Christian faith-the week where we acknowledge Jesus’ last days on earth before He was crucified. He had to die before He could be raise up.
Seeds have to be buried in order for them to grow.
There are many things in life where the not so pleasant comes hand in hand with the joy.
I’m learning this lesson firsthand. It’s frustrating when things don’t cooperate—my hand doesn’t listen when I tell it to roll a ball at a target or my legs don’t cooperate when I tell them to jump or hop. But, after a bit of work (sometimes crying and quitting for a time), they start to listen and the joy my soul feels at being able to do something again is insurmountable.
As this year has done on, I’ve been able to check things off my list and feel more like a normal 23 year old.
—flew by myself…check!
—drove myself to coffee…check!
These are just a few of the many things that make me feel just a little bit like my old self.
As the rains come, remember without a little rain, there won’t be flowers.
Spring is coming, just be patient.
