It has been said that people come into our lives for a purpose and time. They step into our lives for a reason, a season, or perhaps a lifetime.
I have a hard time letting go and change is hard for me. When it’s time for someone to move on, when it’s time for one season to slowly change into the next, I’m not always accepting of it. No season is perfect, but each one can still hold good memories — just as it is with people.
My heart is heavy today, my eyes sting from the tears, but I know that life will go on. It’s time for me to step into the next season and wait with anticipation for what and who God will bring into my life.
People will fail me, and it’s usually because I expect more than what I should, more than what they could ever give. And sometimes when the reason or season is over for which they came into my life, it can feel like being abandoned. One thing I have learned and am still learning — is that hurts and disappointments will cause me to lose focus on Who is most important in my life. When man fails me, God never does.
“…there’s an enemy who tries to turn every fire to destroy your faith — when every fire can kindle your fervency for your first love Who never lets you go.” (Ann Voskamp)
Since there are just no other words for me today, I would encourage you all to wander over to A Holy Experience to read a post that could not have been more timely for me, and hopefully will speak to your hearts as well.
