For everything there is a season. You know you are growing/progressing when you understand seasons in life. There may be times when you must toil for things and times where you reap the benefits of your labor. There may be seasons where you believe you have everyone in your corner and rooting for you and then times when you feel alone and must encourage yourself to keep pressing forward. Seasons don’t always last. They come and go to help develop us and get us to where we need to be. Recognize where you are at and remember that what may be today may be something completely different tomorrow, next week, or months and years from now. We are all prepping for something bigger and greater…..as long as you are willing to put in the work, stay focused, learn and grow, and appreciate moments and people for the season they are/were in your life for. You choose.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 American Standard Version (ASV)
3 For everything there is a season, and a time for every [a]purpose under heaven: 2 a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3 a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5 a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6 a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7 a time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8 a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace.
