The Shadow Season

For still the vision awaits its appointed time; it hastens to the end—it will not lie. If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come; it will not delay.

We welcomed in the new season last week, but I know winter is still lingering around a bit for most of us. The weather is cold in the morning, but we around lunch time, we get that nice warmth promised with spring. It's that weird transitional weather where you almost want to dress for two seasons in one day or just suck it up, opting to be cold or hot. 

I didn't want to just talk about my outfit - it's not much you can say about a jumpsuit, lol - so I wanted to connect the season weather to our life season. Specifically how we are going to experience the change we so want when the time is right. Pause. Re-read that and now continue. 


Very often, we all work toward something. Entrupreneurship, a degree, financial freedom, and so on, are just a few of the possible driving forces that motivate us. If you're smart, you've talked to God about it to ask that He works on your behalf too, while you do what you can. Nonetheless, while "grinding", we sometimes overlook the small changes that show the actual change in our seasons. What we transitioning from may have a larger presence than what we're transitioning to, but that doesn't mean it's not there. 


Like the spring season, we didn't just wake up to tons of flowers and hot weather overnight once March 20th came. No, we felt the move from coats to jackets and sweater to long sleeves gradually.  As the earth warmed, we saw our ecosystem react to the small changes that gave us hints to a change. Grass started growing, flowers started budding, and an increase in bugs popped up. None of this happened before the time was right. 

What we transitioning from may have a larger presence than what we're transitioning to, but that doesn't mean it's not there. 

I could beat a dead horse but the main takeaway here is this; just because the changes are small, doesn't mean the big change isn't in the works. God has appointed everything a specific time for it to do what it needs to do, and trusting that the time will come is our job as faithful children. I know you may be anxious or tired, but do know that He has a reason and purpose behind the wait. Remember: "If it seems slow, wait for it; it will surely come."
