Ecclesiastes 3King James Version (KJV)


To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
What profit hath he that worketh in that wherein he laboureth?
10 I have seen the travail, which God hath given to the sons of men to be exercised in it.
11 He hath made every thing beautiful in his time: also he hath set the world in their heart, so that no man can find out the work that God maketh from the beginning to the end.
12 I know that there is no good in them, but for a man to rejoice, and to do good in his life.

Seasons of change happen in our lives when we are ready and most often when we are not.  We got through job changes, changes in our family, finances, and our friendships.  How do we handle those?  Do we get angry?  Insecure?  Lost?

The scriptures above tell us that we will go through many seasons in life.  In these changes we must trust God and hold tight to the knowledge that He knows what He is doing.  It's in these seasonal changes we grow in our faith and develop character.  Character is defined as the way someone thinks, feels, and behaves : someone's personality

You aren't the same person you were when you were born...experiences in your life have caused you to change and develop.  We change physically, spiritually and emotionally when the seasons change.

If you are in a season of change know that you aren't alone.  God said we would all go through these.  Trust Him!  Hold on tight and know He knows what is best.  Let go of the past and look forward.  I will finish with this scripture. 

Jeremiah 29:11King James Version (KJV)

11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
