Prayer and Possibilities for 3/2023 Monday

This too shall pass. Sounds like a trite remark of a well-wisher, yet it’s firmly grounded in Scripture. In Ecclesiates, we are reminded that to everything there is a season and those seasons will change. Winter will turn to sprint. Weeping will turn to laughter. Mourning will turn to dancing. Today, if you’re in one of those hard seasons, pray for the season to pass. Acknowledge this is but a season and there will be better seasons ahead. Ask God to help you find the beauty and purpose in your current season, and walk by your side guiding through this one and into the next.

Prayer for this Season to Pass
Heavenly Father, you’ve told us there is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens:

a time to plant and a time to uproot,
a time to tear down and a time to build,
a time to weep and a time to laugh,
a time to mourn and a time to dance,
a time to scatter stones and
a time to gather them,
a time to embrace and
a time to refrain from embracing,
a time to search and a time to give up,
a time to keep and a time to throw away,
a time to tear and a time to mend,
a time to be silent and a time to speak.

Walk with me through this current season and show me the next step. Lead me to step closer to you, through whichever season I’m in, helping me grow in my faith and glorify you no matter the circumstances life brings.

For you have made everything beautiful in its time and I trust you will make all things beautiful in my life too. All this I pray through your Son Jesus Christ. Amen.

Going Deeper:

READ Ecclesiastes 3:1-11.

PRAY for God to walk through this current season with you, leading your way, helping you grow in faith.

REMEMBER there is a purpose in this season and God will make everything beautiful in its time.

REFLECT and journal your response to God.

What purpose do you see in this season?
How will you trust God more as you walk through this season?
How can you lean into this season to grow your faith and learn to trust God more?

I’ve tried to answer this question in my post here:

How to Find Happiness Within Yourself
Let me tell you from the get-go that How to Find Happiness Within Yourself is not an easy question to answer.

I’ve spent days hopping on trains of thought to abandon them in the middle because they either seemed unfair, unrealistic, unempathetic, too complex, or impractical.

I’ve been thinking about happiness that exists without dependence and where I can find it as I take my dog on his walk, drive home from my grandma’s, watch The Office, feed stray dogs, move from one room to another, climb stairs, choose clothes, and all the places in between.

When a subject is rarely talked about or talked about incessantly, I like to begin by understanding it from the basics…

Inspirational Stories of Gratitude
Sara’s story – Happier
“I don’t remember much suffering before graduation. Things were not so bright, but things were normal. I got ups and downs in life like everybody else. Yet I didn’t lose that sense of belonging till then.

I majored in English Literature and humanities, by the way. I also love my major so much, I picked that and I would take it again if I have the choice.

I was raised in a broken family. My parents are divorced. They live in different countries. I’ve always been living with my mom and dad used to visit every now and then. And for some reason, after graduation, I decided to move and live with Dad for a while…”
