There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens (Ecclesiastes 3:1)
Like the seasons of nature we have seasons of life. Not always ones we like. But, like nature, our seasons must change and, we can be productive in any season.
I was talking to God one day around the time I had a significant birthday, telling Him I had reached this age and I didn’t know what I was doing with my life, and I asked Him, where do I go from here. His response immediately came back, “I don’t see your age, I see you.” At the same time, flashing before my eyes were all the patriarchs of the Old Testament and how God used them in their old age, in the Winter of their lives.
In this Autumn season of my life I am moving into the things I was meant to do long ago but for one reason or another, didn’t happen. So as I press on with hope in my heart, I know I will accomplish all that God has planned for me to do.
Which season of life are you in at this moment? Do you believe that you can be useful no matter which season it is? I pray that whatever season in life you’re in right now that you would accomplish the things you were born to do.
