When Seasons Change

As the sun sets on the horizon it reflects the golden glares of another day at its end. A moment of solitude and wishful thoughts of what transpired in the hours and moments that passes as swiftly as the air that flows with its gentle breeze beating on our faces. It is in those sobering moments when we are faced with circumstances that cause us to look at the reality of the hour yearning for something to give us that release and transport us to that place of peace; resting within the comfort of a well placed destiny that might be nothing but a dream.

There are moments when we meet situations that cause us to stop and think. For many, life will take a turn that is uncomfortable and frustrating. Those are times when you do not know what to do or where to turn. You have seen the colors of autumn and the winter rain turning into snow; however just as seasons change you must decide to endure. For others it will be a time of joy and fulfillment. This will shape their attitudes to a life of bliss. Though seasons are always upon us, they never stay. We make adjustment to accommodate the times we are in. Be it winter, spring, summer or fall change will come and with it new beginning; new life and opportunity will prevail.

Remember it’s a new season and a new day new anointing is coming our way. It’s a season of power and prosperity. A new season is coming for you and me! The moment you are in will help to shape your destiny. Hold on and don’t be upset about your season just be prepared for the change that will eventually come!

Just as season is a division of the year, marked by changes in weather, ecology, and hours of daylight. Seasons result from the yearly orbit of the earth around the sun and the tilt of the Earth’s rotational axis relative to the plane of the orbit. In temperate and Polar Regions, the seasons are marked by changes in the intensity of sunlight that reaches the Earth’s surface, variations of which may cause animals to go into hibernation or to migrate, and plants to be dormant.

How does this affect us as a people living on this big blue marble of planet earth? Surely we can compare this to our own experiences. Though we might not want to admit it, we go through different seasons of our human experiences. Some moments are embarrassing, humiliating and filled with challenges beyond compare. You might be going through those seasons at this moment but hold on the drought will be over and the rain will fall again. The sun will shine again! Can you see the comparison made as life revolves around the axis relative to the plane of the orbit? (Just trying to draw a picture of our existence in comparison to the earth’s rotation) When you come to those times when all is out of control, it’s time to stop and make adjustment that will prepare you for new beginning.

Recently I was drawn to the word that tells the story of the Children of Israel crossing the Red Sea on their way to the promise land. It is ironic to note that they had all they wanted and was provided for. They were basking in the glory of their journey having defeated their enemy. They sing and dance giving praise and adoration to the almighty but then suddenly their season change and they forgot those moments of triumph.  Three day after that awesome miracle they were faced with a challenge. They had no water and they began to murmur.  Their season had just changed and they were not ready for what they had to face. However Moses cried out to God and he made a way for them to quench their thirst. He took them to Shur where they found a water spot but it was bitter. The bitter place may not be different but the experience can change. Yet another miracle took place when the bitter water were made sweet with a tree being placed into it. He then led them to Elim where there were twelve wells of water and comfort. Their season changed and they were enjoying the beauty of it all!

When seasons change we can be the same or we can make the adjustments that will see us through. It does not matter what you might be going through this change might not be just for you. Think of the many that is depending on you. Stand strong and don’t give up! Changing seasons can bring triumph and independence. It will turn your challenging times into bloom that unfolds the blossom which assures new life and a new beginning. Take a look at where you are and ask yourself, what season am I in?
