#21 [seasons] Illustrated Faith Gratitude Documented 2017
He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons that the Father has fixed by his own authority. But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” -Acts 1:7-8.
This year has been pretty eventful.
Those are some of the highlights. Each day this year seems to be adding on different elements of year that I will be glad to see move on. Despite all the lonely nights, frustration, angst, confusion, disappointment, countless hospital visits, midnight drives to nowhere... there was something to be learned in each closing of a season. Closed doors means new ones will open. New opportunities, fresh starts, and forgotten difficulties.
Every change has been a constant reminder that I am totally dependent on God because I don’t know what’s going to happen next. I feel like I’m losing a lot in this life but I know in the end that I will have gained a whole lot more for this life and the next.
The Lord will never bring you to a trial that He will not bring you out of.
If we have nothing else in these dark nights, it is hope. ✌🏻
