What season are you in?

What word would you describe the season that you are in? Has it been a challenging one? Has it been a time of growth? A time of acceleration? A time of stagnation? A time of reflection? A time of meeting new people? A time of lonesomeness?

It may be difficult to say that you have only felt one way in a season but I’m sure you can agree that there was definitely a theme during your current season.

Also note that a time of hardship does not necessarily mean you had a bad time, it just means that you went through a lot but you learned from your experience and in that way grew from it.

We all go through times where we struggle to keep our head above water but also times where you float effortlessly. Crazy how that works. Like the famous saying from Winston Churchill:

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal; it’s the courage to continue that counts.”

Right now in my life I feel that I’m lacking certain things and certain traits but I was reminded of these few verses in the bible:

There is a time for everything, and a season for everything under the heavens.

A time to be born, a time to die.

A time to tear down and a time to build up.

A time to weep and a time to laugh.

A time to mourn, a time to dance.

A time to search and a time to give up.

A time for war and a time for peace.

There are loads more verses in between but these are my favourites from ecclesiastes 3.

You may feel alone but instead of realising how you are missing out in your relationship realise the freedom that you have with ‘no strings attached’. If you feel that you are struggling in some way remember that it is not going to last forever, you will get out and you will learn from your hardships, and grow from it.

Just remain hopeful in the fact that things can and will change for the better. If you have a dream that you are pursuing don’t give it up, because you won’t lose if you said you tried, but you will never win if you don’t try.

  1. Itโ€™s summer and a great time to be alive, even though itโ€™s a tad (typical British understatement) warmer than usual for the time of year.

  2. Honestly? I used to love Summer but I hate it now. I’m training for Fall races and I have to run in the extreme heat and humidity. Is it hot and humid where you live? I can deal with heat, but I hate it when it feels like I step outside into a sauna which is what it feels like today. Sorry to be negative. I have to make myself get out there and run. I just want to stay in the air conditioning. ๐Ÿ™‚ I was seriously just thinking about getting a refund for those races.

    1. Well at the moment it is winter where but during the summer there are very few days where it is actually unpleasantly humid, I do live by the beach so generallyspeaking it’s great weather, just a bit windy sometimes๐Ÿ˜…
      I hope that you can get used to the summer tough and I’m sure running helps with that so keep it up!

  4. A lovely sentiment here, my new friend. I feel like my seasons have days – like, a chilly day in summer or warmer day in winter. Pockets of the opposite of what the season feels like. I enjoy these because it gives me a different perspective!

  5. Eccl 3 is one of my favorite chapters of the Bible. So true.. There are different seasons of life – and a ‘purpose’ for every season. It’s wise to remember that when we are not satisfied with where we are… maybe God has me exactly where I am right now for a purpose. God bless!
