One thing I have learned and still in the process of learning is seasons. In life we go through different types of seasons. Seasons to grab hold of something without letting go and season to let go and let God. One of the hardest seasons for me to recognize is when to let go of a fight and give my battle to the lord! See I am a natural born fighter. I’m a warrior woman, I go hard, I don’t give up, I give it my all and I fight to the end, spiritually, mentally, and emotionally. Now I know you are thinking that’s great!! Don’t get me wrong I think it is a good quality to have however, there is a season to war and a season to Be still and know that God is God.
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 says To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven! Then it goes on to say there is a time to cry and a time to laugh , a time to hold on and a time to let go, a time to build and a time to tear down, a time to war and a time of peace. I have learned that the Lord deals with us in every season we go through. He deals with us according to what we need in that season. Being a fighter I find it difficult at times when the lord is telling me to Be still, Wait, let me fight this battle! The fighter in me wants to get busy, aggressively fix things, work things out, solve the problems, and basically get in gods way making the problem worst! Lol but what I learned is anytime we try to stand in your own human strength and rely on your own abilities we come up dry and empty. God is in control, sometimes the greatest fight we can give, is to let go and let God. As much as I would like to fix things in my life and change people to be what I would like them to be. I can’t, everything and everyone has their seasons. This is when trusting God really comes in! When we can’t change it, when it’s out of our control when we literally exhausted ourselves trying, can we still trust God and let it go? He’s teaching us something through these seasons, he’s drawing us closer, he’s building character in us.
So I want to encourage you to tune in to what God is doing in your life. Let go and let God! Take time to pray for direction, clarity, wisdom! letting go is not always easy but unless the lord builds the house we labour in vain. Psalms 127:1
Remember everything has a purpose, we can grow, we can get better and we can learn through every difficult season.
Trust in the lord with all of your heart and lean not to your own understanding. Im learning to stand still, release some things and let God be God, and I can honestly say it’s a blessing. He’s a much better fighter than I am!
I hope this story shed a little light on knowing your season and learn
