Our Season, His Reason

Turmoiled and distraught from this mind state
I sit here confused and trying to relate
Relate to what? That’s what I am confused about
So please be patient and help pull me out
Out from behind that invisible divider
That I try to break down but a force rises it higher
Do I give up? No! because I’m determined  and willing
To fight for what I am feeling
And I am also willing to fight for yours and I’m giving it my all
Even though when I try, up comes that divider, the emotional wall

--L. Mabins


The things that happen through us are only because of Gods loving grace. We never know when the seed we plant in someone’s life will actually begin to bare its fruit.  So do not give up.  Luke 10:2 states, “He told them, The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field.”  We also struggle to realize, at times, that even when we don't see the fruits of our labor that our roots are still developing.  When our season changes and it seems as if the fruit (our works) and the plant life (our spirit life) are dead, but they actually are not.  Our situation is just dormant and waiting for our season to come around full circle. Just like plants, we are resilient and can weather many storms because Jesus weathered the first one for us. We need to have FAITH through all situations, as hard as this seems and may be for many. Hebrews 11:1 reads, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”  Just because we may not see growth in our life, does not mean that we are not rooted and preparing to develop and be fruitful for the season(s) to come. SO, DON’T FAINT BEFORE YOUR HARVEST!!!
