Full

Some seasons seem chock full of pain and loss.
Heartache and loneliness.
Dashed dreams.
Unmet goals.
Hard things.
Unanswered prayers.
Uncertainty.
Chaos.
Injustice.
Hatred.

But these seasons only seem chock full of these things.
Because God is present in every season.
And He is the Sovereign Lord in each season.
And because He is, there is abounding grace in each season.
And there is hope in every season.
And there is love.
In the midst of the pain and loss.
Heartache and loneliness.
Dashed dreams.
Unmet goals.
Hard things.
Unanswered prayers.
Uncertainty.
Chaos.
Injustice.
Hatred.

Some seasons seem chock full of hard things but they only seem full of these things.
Grace is there also.
And so is hope.
And so is peace.
Because God is present in each season.

N.B. I published this post originally on November 30, 2019. I reread it recently and realized that I needed and need the reminder of the reality of God’s abiding presence, His omnipresence, and the hope this truth engenders. I wanted to share it just in case someone else needs this reminder also.
