Hey girl hey! I do not know about you, but the Lord has really been teaching me about seasons recently. In the past year of my life, I have felt like I have been in the darkest season of my life. A lot of heartbreak, change, disappointment, bitterness, and sadness came from this season of my life. I will not sit here and write that all of those emotions have gone away. I mean, that’s life, am I right? However, I can sit here and tell you that I have learned so much in this past season, and I have learned to not let it DEFINE me.
The past year I have let the season that I was in and the struggle that I faced define me. I let it influence every single decision I made, and let it determine my worth. It took a lot of wrestling with God to finally catch a glimpse of the beautiful work he was doing in my life. I have come to the realization of the restoration God has done in my life, and how much better His ways are. I was clinging so tightly to the things that I believed defined me, and one day at a time, God slowly took those things from me. In the midst of the season, I felt like it was just a slap in the face and another mountain to climb. However, I now realize he was taking those things from me to allow me to let go and surrender them to Him. I truly had to let go, and trust the fact that He is GOOD, and He is ALWAYS working for our good. How cool is that? I was trying to fight my own battles and climb my mountains on my own. And guess what? That never works. Never has. Never will.
One of my favorite songs recently has a line in it that says, “Every breath I breathe an invitation to believe you are creating something good. Even though this season does not tell my story, I know you will move mountains for me. You’re just that good.”
Whatever season you might find yourself in, know the One who created you is fighting for you. He is walking beside you, and He has already moved mountains for you. And He will do it again. You are not alone sister, and your season does not define you. It strengthens you. Believe, walk in, and trust in the truth that the One who created you is moving mountains for you, and is deeply in love with you. He’s just that good.
