Each season we pass through in this life has left a ligature mark in the depths of our minds and in the caverns of our hearts. How we perceive the memory of each season can either bring to remembrance a sense of love, joy, peace, and comfort or condemnation; anger, frustration, regret and possibly great pain. The circumstances of our past can either cause us to build walls or bridges in our relationships; It all depends on our perception of those experiences……OR does it!!! Perhaps all of our experiences both negative and positive are for a greater reason…A far greater purpose than we can understand. We love God and thank Him when we are in a fruitful season but tend to ignore Him or blame Him when we have encountered difficulty, tragedy, hurt or loss. God has not left us in any season of our life…. He is with us in every season under the sun!!
He has told us that there is a time and a season for everything under the heavens. In times of sorrow or sadness we must remember that joy is just sleeping on our pillows and He will cause it to arise in the morning. He will bring a new day…with a fresh beginning. We must not faint in times of distress or ponder on the negative hurtful things in our lives. For the Lord knows our woes and He embraces us with His pure love to release the burdens of our pain. When our worldly troubles seem unbearable; our Lord is there to carry us. He will build us up to face the world in a new way; with a new perception. Not with a mindset based on our past or current experiences but based on the truth; His living word!! All things work together for each season in our journeys. Just as the moon gives way to the rising sun, you too will pass through each season in the cycle of life.
As you progress through each season of your life…Don’t look back, unless it is to recall how God has brought you through; to reveal or encourage another who is in need of God’s assurance. Your victory is in moving forward toward the greater blessings in God. Seeking Him will break any chains in your past and move you into wholeness!! It begins with you trusting the Lord with the seasons of your life. His presence will cause the beauty to arise in you!! It will melt away the ice blocks in the chambers of your heart and cause you to Breathe Again!!
It is Only through our Heavenly Father that we can learn to build Bridges of Hope in Humanity; and break down the walls of adversity that the enemy wants to keep us enclosed in!!
May God Bless You and Keep You in All Things Pertaining to Life and Godliness ~Sincerely Pastor Cindy🌹

Scriptures on Seasons
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
