Joy And Sorrow

Just as one season moves into another, so are there like seasons in our life cycles.  There are times of joy and beauty and times of sorrow and suffering.  They sometimes go hand-in-hand.  They are companions on our journey.

We need to befriend them, not control them.  When we hold on to either or both, we stop growth. We stop God’s work in us.

Spring, summer, fall, winter–each has its beauty and difficulties;  each has its dyings and risings.   We need to let God be God.  We need to depend on God’s strength in each phase of the journey. “Fear not.  I am always with you.”
