You know, we quote so many scriptures on the things to come and on trusting God in all seasons but when it really comes down to it, sometimes we lack purpose and vision. We drag and complain through some seasons instead of appreciating what they have to offer. This was exactly my problem. I used to spend so much time worrying about the things that I may have missed out on that I almost missed an opportunity to find the purpose in my season. I’m going to say something that many people don’t like to admit. We’re in a world where society is constantly chasing one accomplishment after another and we look down on people that appear to be doing anything less.  Listen—it’s fine to be okay with just being okay. Maybe the season you’re in right now isn’t the best time for you to be a homeowner or start your business. That’s okay. Maybe you’re in a season of being single and it’s time to focus on your personal growth. That’s okay too.

If you’re in a mundane season right now or you’re on a path that’s different than what you expected, enjoy your life (because every day is a gift), find purpose and meaning in where you are today and delight yourself in the Lord. I feel that God is getting ready to transition me to another season and I don’t know exactly what he has in store for me but what I do know is that God makes no mistakes and from here on out, I will live out my seasons with joy and purpose. This blog post will forever be my reminder. I hope and pray that my story will encourage you to do the same.

  1. This truly blessed me at the right time! Sometimes I find myself thinking I’m behind and I’m not where I should be and I lose sight of the fact that I am where I am right now for a reason and I have to embrace it, hear what God is speaking to me in this season and know that it is preparing me for the next season.

    1. Hi Ashleigh!
      Absolutely, Sis. I couldn’t have said it better. God is such a great father that even when we think we’re not enough, he’s constantly molding, building and preparing us for what’s to come. I’m so glad that this post blessed you today. Thanks for reading!

  2. Dear Ashley,
    Thank you for sharing your insights and encouragement to help us embrace the seasons of our lives. I am going through my own transition in which I am learning how to cast off what I thought I would be doing to what God has planned for my life. In this transition He gave me the ability to write Christian-themed poetry as part of a writing ministry. Today God had me to meditate on John 14:12-14. I paraphrase a portion of it here: “..greater things we will do in His name.”May He continue to do great things in you so that you can do greater things in His name!
    God bless you!
