Seasons of Ministry

By Rose H.
In life everything has seasons. A time attached to it. Nothing (in this world) lasts forever.
Even ministry has its seasons and times. God may call you to do this or that for a time. Yet everything has a time. He always has us lay it down.
The trick is not to hold onto anything too tightly. Don’t clutch at ministry so tightly that God can’t give you something even better. That’s what He does. He never takes things out of our hands without preparing something infinitely more wonderful and special for you. Open up to change. Let the seasons flow. Do what you have been called to do for today, then if you wake up tomorrow and feel God’s call in a different direction, follow Him.
And if you have felt His call to move into something different, but were afraid to move, pray. Ask God to help you make the change. Courage and strength don’t come from us anyway. Trust God for these and move into what He has planned.
Seasons will come and go. Here on this earth we are confined to time and space. But God gives us works of love to do for today. Learn to flow with the seasons and enjoy them. 


  1. Dear Rose. I think this post shows deep spiritual growth in you and an increasing sensitivity to the Holy Spirit's leading. It blessed me greatly. May the Lord bless you.

    1. Thank you. I pray that you are right. It is my hearts desire to become ever closer to my Savior.

      By the way, I had some Ben & Jerry's Chunky Monkey yesterday. It brought back memories of being on the Delaware river and eating ice cream with ya'll. *happy sigh*

      God bless and keep you, Rose
