Seasons Go Round and Round

Here I am again trying to blog.  This has been a hard season for me.  Seems like my husband and are are in a transitional period of our life.  That simply means that we are waiting for some things to fall into place so we can move on into the next season of our life.  I hate waiting.  I really do.  I’m the type of person who likes to see motion.  I like to see progression.  There are times that I do wait and it is nice to me but during those “nice” times I can also see progress.  This particular time I am having a hard time seeing progress.  Therefore it is hard for me to wait.

Part of faith is not seeing what is behind the scenes and going forward anyway.  I am trying my best to wait because I know that the season will change and I will see what we have been waiting for.  And it will be good.  That I know.  How do I know?  I’ve been through this many times in my sixty-two years of life and it does change.  I also have faith in a God and His promises, and His promises speak of things changing and coming to an end.  But I also know that the waiting sucks.  I am not good at waiting.  I get antsy and I get down right mean if I let myself.  And I do let myself.  It’s those times of mean-ness that I literally have to stop what I am doing and take a really deep breath and slowly let it out.  I express my feelings to the only one I know who can handle my mean-ness.  That is God himself.  He has really big shoulders.

We do have a really good thing in our lives recently and that is the birth of another grandchild last week!  That is a very good thing – life in the midst of what feels like darkness!  Can’t do any better than that.

So in these times of waiting, whatever you are waiting for, take the time to examine what is your hope is anchored in.  If you anchor your hope into the change then you may be in for a rough wait.  It has to be deeper.  There is nothing wrong with desiring the things of this life unless you put your hope in them.  They can’t hold an anchor.  Has to go deeper.  Mine is Jesus and His friendship to me;  The Father God who holds and loves me no matter how mean I am; Holy Spirit who comes and teaches me and guides me through the waiting.  They have a much higher perspective than I and can see not only my season of waiting but they see the end and it is good.

So, here is a song for you: 

Enjoy the season you are in and learn all you can from it.

  1. always on target, and so truthful, that’s what makes your blogging so neat! waiting is tough, but glad to see you’re always looking to the One who knows how to carry you along ’til you get there! btw, song was great! hang tight, doors are opening!

  2. As you wait, how do you see the situations occurring for you? In the path you have chosen,do you see positivity and hope or apprehensions of the unknown? What kind of future are you able to visualise? Is that the future you want?

    1. These are all good questions. I do see things unfolding each day (though never fast enough for me – LOL). I see the future for me full of hope and positive outcome – of course I have a little apprehension due to my nature of “fear of the unknown” that I also share with excitement of the mystery. I have always been an adventurous person and find it somewhat easy to just jump into a new adventure – thank goodness my husband is there to slow me down when needed – LOL I see a future of good things for our family and that I do want! 😀 Thank you so much for reading and asking these questions. 😀

  3. What a beautiful blog–not just the intriguing header picture, but the authenticity of Faith in our God Who is bigger than all the things that distract and bring us down. I know about “darkness”, and sometimes I get “monster-y” (mean)–there are times when I’m not really speaking to the Lord; and yet I know He is ever Present with me. It took a long time to learn that my tirades and “attitudes” do not shock Him or put Him off–that He wants communion with me, no matter my mood. For this, and so much else, I’m daily grateful–He is a GOOD Father, a GOOD Husband; I’m ever amazed that He loves me so–and that feels GOOD. God bless you today.

  4. The verse that springs to mind is;

    “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things unseen. Hebrews 11:1

    Later in the chapter I see a section so appropriate to my situation……

    “But without faith is is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must be believe that he is a rewarder of those who diligently seek him.”

    Hebrews 11: 6

    The question arises, how diligent am I?

    In the midst of the valley we can HOPE, but we must diligently seek – whereas I might believe wallowing in self pity is good enough.

    Not so.

    Bless you today, no doubt your situation will have changed since you wrote this post.
