When Seasons Change 

Today has been a whirlwind of emotions and I really don’t even know where to begin. One thing that is certain is that God’s plan and reasoning are perfect. The seasons of life’s many ups and downs, the tears, the sadness, happiness, and joy – it’s perfect even when we feel like the trials will rip us apart and spit us out into crumbled pieces.

Have you ever felt that way? I have lots of times especially today. As I was driving my son to school, it hit me that we are in an entirely new place than last year. New state. New scenery. New school. Every inch of this place is different. It’s opposite of Atlanta. I didn’t know what else to do so I cried to go home. I wanted the comfort of home, my mom, my family, and friends. To be able to just sit on the front porch of the house I grew up in or to go on a walk with my best friend on our street. I’ve done a semi-good job about holding in my crazy emotions but today just grabbed me and sucked me into a pool of emotions. It was needed. It was refreshing in the way a good cry can be.

Then I thought to myself… This was prayed for and this is what God provided. This is where God  said, “Go.” This is where I am. I am different. I am in a different season and it is a good season. I am in God’s perfect season for my life. Regardless of what we may experience in life, God’s plan will always be perfect for the seasons we endure. After all, He knew us before we were in our mother’s womb and He knows His plans for our life. He has the seasons of my life in the palm of His hand. What more can a girl ask for?
