Lord of the Seasons by Conny Hubbard

flower10sides04My friend Carolyn Vargas has published a book recently. It’s a companion book to her third CD by the same title: Lord of the Seasons. Reading Carolyn’s book has made me reflect on the seasons I’ve been through in my life. As she shares her heart in the book, God has been with her through every season, joyful or difficult. Ecclesiastes 3:1 tells us “to everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.”

In each season of life we have an opportunity to get to know our Lord better. If I understand what God is doing in my life during a particular difficult season I can embrace and accept His work in me much better and get through it, hopefully, quicker because I’m learning my lessons and allowing the necessary changes to take place. This is the way I’m wired. If I know the purpose of what’s going on it gets much easier.

One of the more difficult seasons in life is the winter season. Maybe someone who is reading this is in a winter season right now. Everything seems to be on hold. It looks like there is no change, no growth and no fruit. Your difficulty looms like a large and unmovable mountain. One of the advice Carolyn gives – and I whole heartedly agree – is to take it one day at a time. Look ahead but don’t live ahead! Sometimes just getting through that one day is a victory.

As a corporate Body of Christ we also go through seasons. I would like to share the words of a song from Carolyn’s book that describes this season. This is a season of blessings despite of what we are hearing in the news! God’s Holy Spirit is moving in the earth. Even as difficulties around us increase there will be an increase in the presence and power of God for all His people.  I prophesy to you with Carolyn’s words: Breakthrough is on the way!
