Unexpected Life Changes
Things happen and then change follows. We know the routine because we've lived it several times but even with previous experience, unexpected life changes still stagnate us. That's perfectly okay for a time but it becomes a problem when the season has changed and you're still being held back due to something that occurred several months or even years ago.
If you find yourself halted for a long duration of time brought on by various circumstances, it may be time to look at what happened, why it may have happened, and what has materialized from it. Death is a natural occurrence that can't always be explained but even in that, we ourselves must keep living. The loss of a job, relationship, or friend may happen, and although we may believe at that time that we can't live without certain things and people, those experiences usually teach us that we can.
Allow the changes that you've experienced in life to mature you enough to then, plant a seed and water it, to enable the growth of someone else. In 1 Corinthians Paul's says, " I planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase." There's someone waiting on your 'overcomer' journey, you only need to take it.
When The Season is Done
Life is what you make it but to have an enjoyable one, will usually involve making some hard but necessary choices. We never want to consider the possibility of losing a friend but the fact has always been and will remain that seasons change and the people within it. This isn't referring to lifelong friendships but more so towards those people in which we try to build forever relationships with when it was never really meant to go past an appointed time. Isn't that how you never end up moving past old relationships? You find yourself questioning and questioning for years why it ended, neglecting the fact that people change and grow apart all the time.
I've heard someone say, "Accept what God allows". If you ever find yourself trying to hold on to a person whether it be for a friendship or a relationship, consider for a moment that the season just may be up. People will come and people will go, just don't become so distracted that you miss the new season in your life.
