Not of sadness but of full joy. Words can’t express how happy I am in my life. It feels like just yesterday I was depressed and walking in darkness. I felt stagnant in my life and could not see any way out.
In a recent morning meditation I read about the differences in the sowing season and the reaping season. Wow! I can certainly remember the sowing season. I felt like I was in this season for a few years.
The sowing season is extremely necessary for our spiritual growth, but it’s also the most uncomfortable season in our lives. It’s a time when it seems as if everything is going wrong. It looks like people around us are all receiving blessings but you. You walk in darkness and feel low, still and quiet. I like to describe this time in your life as feeling like you can’t breathe. Sometimes your mind starts to play tricks on your and you think thoughts of giving up. It’s also the hardest time ever to show Christ in your words and your actions. How can you show His graces when you are beginning to think maybe He has given up on you? The sowing season is truly a humbling season, set to strengthen your spiritual man, define your purpose, build your passion and give direction. On a good note, the seasons always change. Your spirit will begin to warn you of change. You begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel you’re just a little uneasy as to when the change will take place exactly. I tell you right now-- Get prepared the seasons are changing and they’re changing fast! Take your hands off the wheel is the lesson learned. You made it!
“Lord God upon walking into this reaping season I can’t even begin to tell you how amazing it feels. Knowing the purpose you have drawn out for me has actually begun to unfold. It’s actually happening”.
You are now stumbling upon the purpose God has designed for you. To the outside world it may look confusing, but to those who know and love you, they celebrate with you. In the reaping season gratefulness oozes from your pores.
“I am crying tears of joy for the reaping season I am in”.
Matthew 19:28 Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible But with God everything is possible”.
