Every day, I now live in birth and death.
Birth of a new day every day, death of my old ways that don’t serve me anymore.
Birth of a new relationship with my parents, especially my mom and death of a past that I desperately want back.
Birth of trying new things, death of letting old things go.
Birth of a freer life and death of old fears that held me back.
Birth of new patterns, death to the same old path.
Birth of new fresh, real relationships, death of relationships that are no longer anything.
Birth to a new big, bustling city, death of a small town that we lived in for almost thirteen years.
Birth of living in the moment, death to planning and expectations.
Birth to new challenges and opportunities every day, death to a stake, fence-sitting life.
God says that there is a season for everything.
◄ Ecclesiastes 3 ►
New International Version
A Time for Everything
“1There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens:
2a time to be born and a time to die,
a time to plant and a time to uproot,
3a time to kill and a time to heal,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
4a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
5a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
6a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
7a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak,
8a time to love and a time to hate, a time for war and a time for peace.”
I am looking forward to a new season soon, hopefully next spring.
What do you think God?
