A Serious Season

Posted on April 15, 2020 at 4:34 PM
4.1.20

A serious season of time. This is the time we are in. The Bible calls it a time of sorrows. Every news channel I turn on, on my television, is filled with updates on the coronavirus. Words of fear, of death, of dread. While all this information is important and needful for us to be safe, where are the words of peace and calm, encouragement?
We, as humans, are all subject to seasons of time in our life. We are born, we grow, we mature, we live life, we age, we die. None of us is exempt from this life. However, we can choose how we live it. Jesus said He came to give life and life more abundant.
(John 10:10). The question is, how can we live each season of our life to the fullest, most abundant result?  We must not learn to our own understanding (Proverb 3:5-6)
but partner with Him in studying His Word (Bible) and getting into good fellowship with Believers that we might learn and be encouraged.
Don't be deceived. The seasons of time in our lives are becoming more intense as the world becomes more intense. Stress, pressure, decisions of doing the right thing, choices on what we hear or speak, etc. 
We are now coming out of winter and into spring. Less cold, more light, life renews and begins again. A new start. The earth shows us this so why do we not do as creation does? We lay down the old, the past, and begin the new with purposeful good wisdom and choices so that our life can be different and productive.
Embrace this new season of time. No matter what is involved in that choice, that embrace, God is still here, still in control, still for us. Please meditate on this and become a partner with him. Good partners work for the common good of the business, the agreement. 
A serious season of time. Time to wake up and pay attention. Trust in God, Don not be angry. Old things pass away, all things become new, right where you are, right in the middle of your challenge.      
- Pastor Sandra Matheson

Prayer:
Lord Jesus, I thank you for the seasons of time in my life. Thank you that I have understanding that I am not to resist, to be angry, to think that you have left me. I purpose to be steadfast to know that I am growing and maturing in every season and through every challenge of my life, it is for my own good. Sometimes I make poor choices that affect my life and cause stresses and anxieties within me, that get my life off track. Forgive me Lord of my arrogance in thinking I don't need you, that I don't need to allow you to help me in my decisions. I want to draw nearer to you, in you, and create amazing seasons of time in my life. I determine to be obedient to you and our agreement in salvation through you, in my life and choices. Amen

Jeremiah 17:7-8  But blessed (highly favored) is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose confidence is in Him. They will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes (trials, challenges), its lives are always green (always growing, maturing). It has no worries in a year of drought (when it seems nothing is happening) and never fails to bear fruit (fruit comes with maturity).
Psalm 56:3  When I am afraid (uncertain), I put (by act of will, decision) my trust in you.
Psalm 143:8  Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life (I partner with you).
