A dear friend of mine has told me repeatedly, “It’s a season.”
And really it is…a season of sleepless nights, of nursing, of baby food, of ...you can fill it in. As a first time mom, I couldn’t quite find the comfort in the words, “it’s just a season.” But now as a mom of two small ones I take more comfort in them. My oldest no longer pulls everything out of the kitchen cupboards and she finally does eat meat and not just fruit and carbs!
I have spent so much time worrying over things that are really, “just a season.” Right now my youngest squawks about everything. Not a quite squawk, a LOUD squawk. While driving, she cries seventy percent of the time. But I remind myself, “it’s just a season.” She will learn how to talk soon enough and then…there will be another season. The Bible talks about this. A season for everything under heaven. So the question I ask myself is…“Will I fret about this season I find myself in or remember God has lovingly put me here.” He already knows how this season will turn out and it will be for my good! (Jeremiah 29:11)
What season are you in?
