Sitting on the Edge!

Sitting on the Edge!

In my last week’s blog entitled Good-bye Summer, I wrote about the seasons changing.  I wanted to once again touch upon seasons of change.  Why, you may ask?  My answer to you would be, because we are always in a season of change!

Ecclesiastes 3:1 (KJV) To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

When we think of season’s changing in the natural we either look forward to them or dread them!  I feel we do the same in our life’s seasons of change, we either are sitting on the edge of our seat in expectation of something new, or we are pushing back in our seats, tightly gripping the arm rest, in dread of what is coming next! My friend let me encourage you: Change is coming for your good!

There is purpose behind everything that we go through, whether our experiences are good or bad!  I often encourage people who are going through difficult times to be strong in the Lord, because it is only a season! Bad times will not stay!  This bad season, like so many good seasons in your life will pass as well!

Hebrews 11:1 (KJV) Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

I wanted to really focus on expectation today!  When we are looking to God for our answers, we should have expectation or hope that He will work every detail out for our good!  We may not see how things could possibly work out to our advantage in the bad seasons of our lives, but with God, we can trust that they always will!  His purposes are much greater for us than just simply getting us through each season!  He is constantly proving Himself faithful to us!  He can be trusted with the most difficult of seasons.   Even though what you may be going through is not good, He will use it in your life to develop something good out of it!

We used to play a little game when I was in school called the trust game!  It went something like this:  We would all pair off into groups of two.  One person would stand with their backs toward the second.  The object of the game was for the person standing in front  to fall backward and completely trust that the person behind you would catch you!  At first this was totally terrifying, but the more we fell back and were caught the freer and trusting we became.  Then we would switch partners and have to learn to trust all over again!

Do you know walking through life with God is much like that little game!  At first, you may be terrified to let yourself fall and trust Him to catch you!  However, the more you fall back into His loving Arms and choose to trust Him, the easier it will become! I encourage you today that no matter what season you are in, to embrace it with great expectation and trust!  Trust the One who holds all of your purpose and destiny in His hands and simply fall back,  He will always catch you!
