    This is an interesting concept. As people, we do go through seasons of life, I like your comparisons. Fortunately, I am in a positive season right now.

    You are so right that we go through seasons in our life. Sometimes we don’t even realize the shift in season until we look back. I’m feeling very fortunate with the season I am in now even if there will always be aspects of unknown. Our journey is to continue to grow in faith and love of our Heavenly Father regardless of our season! Thank you for the encouragement! God bless!

    Spot on. We g o through seasons, and sometimes we don’t even realize it until we are moving into another. I feel as if I’m shifting now. And sometimes these changes can be frightening, so we must lean on God even more.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Missica!
      I agree with you that sometimes we don’t know we are in a season until we move to another. I tend to think about it and say to myself I am glad that is over! God is holding us tight, protecting us from of the season’s harsh elements. Blessings to you!

    I’m in a newlywed season, so home life is wonderful right now. But being a freelance writer and editor, work life can seem pretty difficult at times. I wonder why God called me to a job where it feels as if I can’t really contribute to my family financially. Thank you for this reminder that God uses all seasons to teach us! I know I need to look for those lessons every day.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Emily!
      Congrats on being a newlywed! I did a post recently because I was struggling with what I bring to my family financially and God whispered in my heart, you can’t put a price tag on your spiritual gift. The fact is I was trying to let the world define my worth by a paycheck rather than allow God to define me for what He has called me to do in this season. I bet you are contributing more than you think. Blessings to you!

    We are on the cusp of some great changes. Thank you for this encouragement. It is just what I needed.

  7. I love the line that gray skies are temporary. Sometimes it feels like they aren’t, but eventually the sun shines through and a tough season passes.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Sam!
      I am so thankful the light of Christ never keeps us in the dark. I’m hoping you have blue skies and lots of sun!

    “Seasons aren’t meant to be a punishment, but they become a way to teach, rejuvenate, restore and remind you that He loves you ALWAYS no matter what season you are in.” I like that! Thanks for the encouragement.

  9. Julie says:

    Thank you for the reminder that God is with us in each and every season we find ourselves in. What a blessing to know whatever we endure He will be there for us.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Julie!
      You are welcome! It is a blessing to know that God will always be with us no matter what our season happens to be.

    Beautiful! Suffering patiently is such a great way of describing His love for us because He does love us so very much. And His love is definitely steadfast, which is always reassuring when we go through the changing seasons. Inspiring post!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Jess!
      I have to admit I was blown away when I read the definition of endure. I thought of how patient God has been with me because of His great love and the what I have cost Him. It was such a new perspective. Thank You for your kind words.

  11. Jackie says:

    Indeed God remains the same in all our seasons. I have been going through this tough time in my life and God gave me strength all through. He has finally restored my joy and pain.

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Jackie!
      Our God is good! Even when we are in a hard season He never leaves us. I’m glad your season has moved on to a new season filled with joy! The enemy steals, but God gives it back and more!

  12. Candice says:

    This is a beautiful post! It’s so true but hard to remember that trials are temporary!

      Hi, Candice!
      It is a great relief to know these trials are temporary! One day every tear will be wiped away. I’m looking forward to that day! Thank You for your encouragement!

    You are so right! Our difficult seasons are our most beautiful ones!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Kristi!
      I know this from personal experience. Sometimes, it is like seeing a rainbow after a bad storm. The promise from God everything will be okay.

  15. I’ve been going through a somewhat difficult season recently and have thought I should read the psalms. Thanks for this reminder!

    • Sheila Rhodes says:

      Hi, Crystal!
      I will be praying for you and what I have learned from my own experience is God is with you in every season. When the seas get rough hang on to the Life Saviour! I love the Psalms. They do bring peace and comfort in difficult times.
