I haven’t shared much of my writing recently. If I’m being honest, I’m still working through some things. It’s hard to share what’s on my heart when I’m still not quite sure what it means. But we all have seasons like that. Seasons of waiting, seasons of growing, seasons of pruning, etc.
Ecclesiastes 3 says that there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. The author lists all the different seasons we go through. If you’re anything like me, sometimes it can be difficult to understand what you’re feeling at any given point in time. If you look through the list in Ecclesiastes 3, it might help you to make sense of the season you’re in right now.
I don’t have it all figured out. If there’s one sentence I’ve said more than anything else this semester, it’s that I don’t have everything figured out. My close friends can all attest to that! :) I have to keep reminding myself that I’m not supposed to have it all figured out. But I know the God who’s already figured everything out. He knows his plans and he knows my future. He knows my thoughts and he knows my heart even better than I do. He knows what he’s up to. I can rest in the arms of my Heavenly Father, knowing that he knows. He knows it all.
So here’s to learning to be comfortable
Even amidst the uncertainty
I am learning that I can grow
Even when I don’t know what I’m growing towards
There is a time for everything
And a moment for every emotion
A time to grow and a time to prune
A time to work and a time to rest
A time to run and a time to slow down
A time to fight and a time to surrender
A time to wait and a time to dance
A time to laugh and a time to cry
A time to understand and a time to be uncertain
Here’s to the moments
Where we don’t know what we feel
Here’s to the times
When we don’t feel certain about anything
Here’s to the seasons
Where our thoughts are as cloudy as the skies
Because there is always time for grace
There is always time for love
There is always time for joy
There is always time for peace
There is always time for hope
There is always time for growth
There is always time to be grateful
So here’s to the seasons of uncertainty. Here’s to learning how to be comfortable being uncomfortable. Here’s to the unknown.
And here’s to being grateful for the little moments in between that bring us joy. Here’s to sweet friends and sunny days and polaroids and barefoot soccer games. Here’s to the little blessings that make life so much sweeter :)
