Another season is always around the corner

Yesterday I blogged about appreciating every day.  Last night when I was up at 4 a.m. I looked out the front window, as I always do when I am up in the middle of the night.  There was an opossum in the front yard.  They are primarily active at night.  They rest in the day and go out at night.  I thought then about this blog post about timing and seasons.  Expounding on the idea of appreciating every day, we also go through seasons and we should not miss what God has for us in those seasons.

It is the last day of October.  For people who are into church history, it is widely accepted as the 500th anniversary of Reformation Day, the day the day when Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-five Theses to the door of the All Saints Church.  I included linked words for you who want to explore, but suffice to say it was the beginnings of the Protestant Church, which includes all the Baptist, Methodist, Nazarene, Presbyterian, non-denominational, and all the rest.  It was the beginning of a new season.

Sometimes seasons last weeks and sometimes years.  Sometimes we are in a season we love and other times it is a season we cannot wait to get through.  Whatever season you are in, God is not absent.  Whether the season you are in is light or dark, good or bad, easy or hard, raining or sunshine, know that He is there.  He is able to teach you and prepare you on the mountaintops and in the valleys (if you will let Him).  It is such a shame when we go through a season and miss the purpose the Lord had for us.  Spend a few minutes listening to Nichole Nordeman sing about seasons.
