Season’s of a Woman’s Life

The following is an excerpt from LETTERS FROM GOD FOR WOMEN, God’s Faithful Promises for You, Harvest House Publishers (a little book I wrote a few years ago).

I treasure you every day.

My precious one,

Consider the seasons. Winter, with its new-fallen snow, covers the seeds of new life in its frozen depths. Spring, with its blossoms and trees, soon turns into summer’s warm, long days. Then, before winter sets in again, autumn arrives with its dazzling show of color.

The rhythm of your life is like that, beloved. Your beauty in Me, your acts of love for others, your servant’s heart, and your sacrifice of prayer will grow and change with each season of your life. There is glorious expectancy in such a plan. No season is more beautiful than another, but each is part of the life cycle I designed.

With you in your tomorrows,

The Lord God

The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases,

His mercies never come to an end;

they are new every morning;

great is your faithfulness.

Lamentations 3:22-23 NRSV

* * *

God makes everything happen at the right time.

Yet none of us can ever fully understand all He has done,

and He puts questions in our minds about the past and the future.

I know the best thing we can do is to always enjoy life,

because God’s gift to us is the happiness we get from our food and drink

and from the work we do.

Ecclesiastes 3:11-12

 

Patterns. Rhythms. Seasons. None more beautiful than another — but each part of our Creator’s design. I don’t know about you, but I understand the glorious expectancy and comfort (!) that comes with belonging to the One who created us with a plan — no matter what season of life we’re in. There is nothing haphazard about his Creation, whether our seasons or the earth’s. There is nothing haphazard about our life journey when we walk beside him. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

    Thank you for allowing us to think deeply about the Lord in our quiet time or as we are seeking Him in many ifferent way. Take for example, I began to seaarch the web for various things and I began to think about the Lord and His goodness after reading the words of Love from others. hank you Lord for your neverending love for us all. I love you Lord.

    I just read The Missing Ingredient and saw in your bio that you have written something about an empty-nest survival guide. I want it–where do I find it? Loved the book, by the way!

    I just found this web site. Finding women who care is so comforting. I have just recently found out how important that is. We all have problems and things that come up in our life and we all need support. Sometimes we think we are the only one going through hard times, but we definitely are not alone. Our problems may not be the same, but nonetheless, we are sisters and need each other’s support even if we don’t know each other.
    Thank you for letting me share.
