If you are experiencing any difficult transitions, conflict, grief, or struggle, I have a secret to share with you. Do you know where seeds begin to sprout? In the dirt. Dirt holds a certain magic, cradling new life. In fact, our past mistakes, heartaches, and any tension we may feel right now in our present season of life, is a part of our growing ground preparing us for our future.

As we go deeper with God in our present situation, we learn how we can help others through their various seasons of life. We become more Christ-like and begin to “rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep” (Rom. 12:15).

The only way to get through our present season of life in a healthy way is to embrace it. Just to be clear, embracing your season of life does not mean you have to love it. It simply means there are times we may feel clueless, but choose to trust our God for His grace for today. He will then teach us all we need to know to prepare us for our next season.
