“Sometimes the not-so-becoming seasons can affect our perspective. But be encouraged. Maybe our journey isn’t always about becoming something but rather, unbecoming, to actually become who we are truly meant to be.”Tweet
It’s hard to believe there’s only 29 days left in the year 2020. And for me, that’s a good thing. The past two years have been challenging, to say the least. And now we are in the season of COVID when everything around us looks a little blah. Lifeless. The vivid colors are fading and quickly falling. And just like the weather, life also has its many seasons of change.
I’m a firm believer that it’s in the way we act and react in those hard seasons that defines who we are. I’m also a firm believer that in the way we respond to struggle is also the answer to growth or decline. We can all relate, especially this year, to the struggles we face each day. I, for one, am ready to say goodbye to the hard times for a little while. So, just for a moment, let’s take off the mask and relax. (figuratively speaking)
If we’re honest with ourselves, many times, the struggles we face are brought on by our own weaknesses. But, there are other times when our struggles are caused by another’s weakness. Those difficult situations when it’s beyond our control and no matter how hard we try, we just can’t change it. And when that happens, the majority of the time, we try to fix it. Right? Why do we do that? Why do we set ourselves up for major frustration and disappointment? We do that because our focus is all wrong. Our focus should be on what we can control, not on what we can’t. Whatever that thing is that you can’t control is taking up all your time and energy. It’s actually controlling you. So let it go. Focus on what you can do, not on what you can’t.
Maybe, if we could try to remind ourselves that seasons are temporary. They come and go with a purpose… even the hard seasons of our journey are valuable. I’m not sure where you are in life, but if your journey is hard, right now…know you’re not alone. Be Patient and Trust Your Journey.
