Apologies for the LONG break guys, I was on holiday but I am back and have adjusted to the time and weather here. So, as many of us enter into a new season of work and university this week I will be releasing two posts on this new season that people are entering. The main scripture that I will be focusing on is Ecclesiastes 3:1 ‘’to everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven’’.
This first post as you can see is named ‘balance’ it is hard to find a balance between everything that you are committed to especially if you are going into your final year of Uni or you are just starting work, trying to find a balance to maintain everything will be tough. As much as you want to attend all the societies and maintain the life you had before work let’s be real you cannot. This is where you have to take time in reflecting about who you are as a person and what God is saying for your life at that given moment. It may be that God says that he needs you in all these places and he will grant you favour upon all man.
You need to consider yourself as a person and have great discipline, it may require you to wake up 30 minutes earlier and spend that time in prayer or having your morning devotion or for some people it will require them going to bed 30 minutes earlier so that they can have some quiet time before God. There are many different things that you can do to make sure that you are balancing everything to your capacity.
One thing I will say is that you should NEVER compare the activities another person does and look at yourself and think that you are not doing enough. Whatever it is God has asked you to do, stay committed to that very thing and God will reward you. You can easily get lost in the spirit of comparison, you see how others are living and you begin to compare yourself based on their lives but they are only showing you the surface level of themselves. The best thing to do is focus on yourself and continue to build on your relationship with God. If people begin to talk, then let them talk, at the end of the day you’re the only person that knows what God has told you and you need to receive and believe in what he has told you. Build yourself in the eyes of God and don’t look to man for verification.
Looking at the scripture Ecclesiastes 3:1 ‘’to everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven’’. There is a season for everything, there are things that you did last month that you do not do now, a season means that there is a transition and it will require growth. You have to change and adjust to this new season, yes, it is uncomfortable but will cause you to release more who you are based on what God is telling you. There is a time for every purpose, this means that there will be new dynamics within this season that you’re in, but NEVER GET LOST IN A SEASON. What I mean by this is that often you can think of all the things you went through in a particular season and see how great it was and then get stuck asking God to do all those things he was doing for you back in that old season when God is telling you that he is doing a new thing, it is just up to you to believe and receive it.
Peace and love
