Do you feel like your life is on hold? You are not alone. God has not forgotten you or your dreams. He is working behind the scenes in ways you do not see. God sees a beautiful diamond inside each of us, but it takes time for Him to remove the impurities in our lives so that we can reflect Jesus. Sometimes the refining process feels as if it’s taking too long for a dream to be fulfilled, but God is as much concerned about the process as He is about the end result. Many times, we miss what God is trying to teach us in the process because we are focused on wanting instant gratification. Never forget, life is filled with seasons. The Bible tells us, “As long as the earth remains, there will be seasons” (Genesis 8:22). Our God appoints seasons of preparation for us, and seasons when our dreams come to pass. Fulfillment of our dreams is dependent on God’s timing. So remember, regardless of what you are going through right now, it is just for a season.
