To Everything There is a Season

My Aunt Gail sent this to me today by email. It's a beautiful reminder that there are so many different seasons in our lives, and each one is orchestrated by God for our good and His glory. Times of war and of peace. Times of joy and mourning. I hope this will be an encouragement to those of you in a difficult season, and a reminder of how quickly life changes to those of you in a season of joy.

No matter where you are, God is in control. He cares for each intimate detail of your life, and will never forsake or leave His children. So whatever season you are experiencing, thank Him for it.

Pray without ceasing and in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you. 1 Thessalonians 5:18-19
