00:01:18.025 --> 00:01:23.204
Spiritual foundation episode about investing in others i talk with you about.
00:01:23.769 --> 00:01:31.459
E-class the chapter three verse one y this doesn't mean that you need to be passive.
00:01:31.934 --> 00:01:37.410
And how you can recognize the season that your hands.
00:01:38.865 --> 00:01:47.745
What are those passages in the bible that just about everyone knows if for no other reason than because it's the lyrics of a popular song as well.
00:01:47.967 --> 00:01:53.632
Yes for everything there is a season a time for every activity under heaven.
00:01:54.241 --> 00:02:04.165
This passage from a class is a wonderful idea from the bible with the idea that everything,
00:02:04.189 --> 00:02:19.838
around us everything in the world comes with this season a time when you're supposed to be focusing on certain things and a time when your not a time when you're growing and a time when your not where your succeeding in a time
00:02:19.628 --> 00:02:25.950
where are not what are the things that happens to us sometimes we think about this passage.
00:02:26.397 --> 00:02:39.391
We begin to look at it and something where we're meant to be paso where the seasons of the world come upon us and our only job is to simply respond to those
00:02:39.361 --> 00:02:47.448
and the truth is it's not necessarily like that first off lot of different seasons come into our life,
00:02:47.544 --> 00:02:54.181
sometimes we can even throw dry seasons sometimes we come through seasons of of waiting,
00:02:54.304 --> 00:03:05.407
sometimes we have seasons of busy ness and other tires we have seasons with test and trials and pain and sometimes we have tests,
00:03:05.566 --> 00:03:18.028
where we are being awarded feel put upon and am fairly strong way in and all of these cases were meant to do things during that season,
00:03:18.133 --> 00:03:24.267
it's not about being positive it's about being active but it's about being active.
00:03:24.804 --> 00:03:32.603
No way that does it feel worse reality but instead responses to the season that your in
00:03:32.483 --> 00:03:46.097
you're not telling off season in your life you know that's because you begin to feel distant from god you begin to feel sometimes that maybe that voice that use to be easy but here are is very far away
00:03:46.040 --> 00:03:55.568
this is where we have dryness in our life and things are going away and we got struggles and trials and regulations
00:03:55.484 --> 00:04:03.004
we need to recognize first off they were such a season and then secondly begin to actively try,
00:04:03.136 --> 00:04:08.675
you reach out and closer to god ourselves you got your distance,
00:04:08.762 --> 00:04:21.917
i often times instead it's we distance from god we stopped i'm missing ourselves and where we stop reading scripture we stopped on our prayer time we haven't been quiet and listened
00:04:21.815 --> 00:04:27.256
for that voice we've got stuck in a rut where we just kind of.
00:04:27.433 --> 00:04:39.373
Going through the motions but we are really drawing deeper into ourselves we selected our physical health or intellectual growth or other areas of your life are we
00:04:39.262 --> 00:04:47.052
hello and our relationships allowed them to suffer sometimes too we have seasons of waiting
00:04:46.986 --> 00:05:01.347
and waiting is one of the hardest things because automatically waiting feels passive when god is telling you that the answer is not no but is instead not now that's actually wanted the hardest,
00:05:01.497 --> 00:05:09.629
messages to ever hear from god sometimes i was waiting periods can be short sometimes thinking bee along.
00:05:10.320 --> 00:05:12.024
But even here.
00:05:12.435 --> 00:05:21.981
You need to be active in the process of waiting to you need to begin to make sure that you're laying the ground work that god is calling you
00:05:21.888 --> 00:05:27.454
tell me because odds are really good after a period of waiting comes up busy season,
00:05:27.505 --> 00:05:37.942
a time not when your busy the way the world and talk about business or you just getting everything done and there's way to much to do on your to-do list is way too long but a busy ness
00:05:37.867 --> 00:05:49.681
godly way where your being called to do something that is way beyond what you are ever able to do you being called and equipped by god to do things
00:05:49.543 --> 00:05:54.893
hey god in a way that is beyond anything you can do.
00:05:55.205 --> 00:06:07.019
That oftentimes he is the grind season the busy season this season of spiritual growth and often if we have it laid the foundation in earlier periods.
00:06:07.439 --> 00:06:10.656
We find ourselves over stretched.
00:06:11.076 --> 00:06:21.864
Remember god can equip you god can do anything but you have to do your part as well that's part of what god calls us to do to be your hands and feet of christ.
00:06:22.752 --> 00:06:31.100
And lastly sometimes you recognize that you're in a test trial period a period of struggle and you need comfort,
00:06:31.115 --> 00:06:40.894
and that's what you need to actively seek out god and the community around you so that we can begin to lift you up and walk with you through that time.
00:06:41.441 --> 00:06:45.522
Can you can begin to grow and heal and move on.
00:06:46.266 --> 00:06:53.101
So what ever season your fun when you reflect on that you recognize this season that you're running.
00:06:53.378 --> 00:06:58.305
Recognize that everything has a purpose everything has a season.
00:06:58.545 --> 00:07:08.297
And this season is one that you are blessed with and need to learn to be thankful for and growth through thanks for listening.
