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 seasons
That we go through in life,
May each season bring forth fruit
So you may be glorified.
