Devotional: Seasons In Life
Christian Women's Devotion on Life's Different Seasons
To everything there is a season, and a time for every matter or purpose under heaven: (V: 1 AMPC)
We all go through different seasons in life.
It's especially so when we have children. Isaiah 40: 11
says, "He will feed His flock like a shepherd: He
will gather the lambs in His arms, He will carry
them in His bosom and will gently lead those that
have their young." It is only for a season that
our children are young and we feel as though we
are limited in what we can do for God. He doesn't
require as much when we have little ones to tend
to. We can still be fruitful, though. We can plant
so much into our kid's lives. There are also
opportunities to reach out to other Mums with
young children. We can have a dynamic impact on
those around us.
Quite often we can feel that being at home with
our children is looked down upon. Being a Mother
is not easy, and is tiring and draining, but it
is the most rewarding of jobs. To raise our
children to follow God is very challenging in
today's world. We need all the resources of Heaven!
We notice with our children growing and going off
to school, we become a lot more freed up to pursue
those things that God may be laying on our hearts
to do. We start to move into a different season of
our lives. I love what verse 11 says, "He has made
everything beautiful in its time. He has planted
eternity in men's hearts and minds [a divinely
implanted sense of a purpose working through the
ages which nothing under the sun but God alone
can satisfy], yet so that men cannot find out
what God has done from the beginning to the end".
Everything is made beautiful in its time. Each season of life we go through is beautiful. From singleness to marriage and having a family; joining the workforce or being in full or part-time ministry; becoming grandparents, then moving into retirement. In all these seasons, we can still be fruitful for our Lord. God has awesome things for us to do no matter what season we are in right now.

And he shall be like a
tree firmly planted [and tended] by the streams
of water, ready to bring
forth its fruit in its
season; its leaf also shall
not fade or wither;
and everything he does shall
prosper [and come
to maturity]. - Psalm 1:3 (AMPC)
Lord, there are so many
That we go through in life,
season bring forth fruit
So you may be
