The sea­sons of life

Be blessed Ec­cle­si­astes 3 vs 1

“To ev­ery­thing there is a sea­son, A time for ev­ery pur­pose un­der heaven”

The con­trast of sea­sons shows the stark dif­fer­ence in tim­ing that ex­ists in the world. We are com­ing to the con­clu­sion of our win­ter in South­ern Africa, the en­vi­ron­ment ap­pears parched and very dry. Ev­ery­thing is cur­rently sub­dued, the paths that come out of the veld are prom­i­nent and the grass looks tired and brown.

Ev­ery­thing looks worn and tired but a few months from now it will be the rainy sea­son. With the ad­vent of the first rains, all of these things that seem dead will come alive. The colours of the flora will pop up, dainty flow­ers will bloom, green grass will grow and flow­ing streams of wa­ter will re­fresh the land.

Our lives are like that as well, de­fined by time but not for­got­ten. We all go through dif­fer­ent sea­sons. Are you go­ing through a dry patch cur­rently where ev­ery­thing seems dead? Pray to God to bring the rains in your life and ev­ery­thing will come alive again.

Ev­ery­thing that is dead will come to life again. Don’t give up, just wait for the shift­ing of the sea­sons to oc­cur ac­cord­ing to His per­fect di­vine plan for your life. Lis­ten closely, you will hear the sound of abun­dance of rain.
