Wednesday’s Word

Philippians 4:12: I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to
have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every
situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.
As much as I tried not to, I wound up pulled into the craziness of the season…but
only for a couple of days. It was definitely a challenging season, trying to juggle it
all. What pulled me out? Reminding myself that I don’t want to start the New
Year like I was beginning to end the old one!

Welcome to Coffee Hour with Chicklit Power and the final Wednesday’s Word for
2017 with Trench Classes United.
Just like the Season of Christmas, we experience “seasons” in life, seasons of
plenty, seasons of scarcity, of trials and of victories, seasons of desert valleys and
seasons of streams of refreshment and revival. It’s not so much the type of
season that matters, but how we walk through that season.
The reality is that without sadness, how would we know happiness? Without pain
and suffering, how would we experience with all of our being well-being? Without
times of scarcity, how could we really appreciate times of abundance? It is the
not-so-good that helps us to appreciate the good.
Have you ever seen two children laughing incessantly with those sweet childlike
giggles that just warm the soul as they ride a teeter-totter? Often the laughter of
the child on the top is suspended…for just a moment until it’s their turn to
Life is like that, a teeter-totter that is. We must find our childlike joy to enjoy the
ride, through the ups and downs, with our faith unwavering, because when all of
our seasons run out, the only thing that will matter is how we walked through
them and “Who” we clung to.
As this year comes to a close and 2018 is now within our sight, may we learn to
hang on through all the seasons He brings us to and through, and may we
remember, we are not on the ride alone.
