Of times and seasons

As humans, we all go through seasons in our lives that comes along with changing times and these seasons are peculiar to our lives journey.

Of times and seasons

To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.

Ecclesiastes

Pretty much earlier in the month, I just noticed that I became tired unnecessarily; had apathy towards my work, I was unhealthily addicted to social media, my mind was literally all over the place and on my I was crying for help.

What sort of exhaustion was this?

I began to notice that a lot of people I knew closely and even from a distance were also experiencing similar thing, tired and exhausted. It occured to me that this wave of tired was everywhere.

I started to pray and ask God for help and mercy and strength because there’s just so much to be done and if there was ever a time to get tired, it shouldn’t be now; It was a phase I needed to leave and that as soon as possible.

What to do with your seasons

While I was praying to God for me to leave this phase because it felt like a dark place; where I was trying to survive on my own strength which clearly couldn’t lead anywhere. I felt the nudge of the Holy Spirit to enter that prayer into my e-journal, Alas, His thoughts weren’t my thoughts, He had other plans. Here’s a sneak peek into what he used my hand to write….

After this was written; I had to take a pause and let the words sink in. It became clearer to me how God doesn’t want us to just waste our experiences or processes by hurriedly transiting into the new phase. Regardless of how terrible we think the situation is, there’s still so much to learn in the process. Take your time and learn everything in there because it will come handy for the next phase.

For those in waiting seasons, for those who currently feeling tired and exhausted, I encourage you to let your soul hope in God because He is your truest help.

This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same temptations we do, yet he did not sin.

So let us come boldly to the throne of our gracious God. There we will receive his mercy, and we will find grace to help us when we need it.

Heb.4.15 & 16 NLT

Are you in the right community for your season?

One of the things that helped me during this season was the right people I had around me. People who understood what I was feeling and held me up in prayers, plugged me to the right resources that helped me greatly. One of the resources was songs. A playlist has been compiled for you; you can access them here.

If you find yourself in this situation, I hope you find strength in this season; I hope you don’t stop believing that everything is working together for your good, and that this phase is part of your process and your journey which needs to be embraced; I also hope that you are surrounded by the right set of people to encourage and cheer you on.

So you know, you have an army of people rooting for you,

Talk to you soon.
