Know your Season

It’s been a long time since I have written a blog but I learnt a lot during this phase. I believe that everything in our life happens for a reason and it unfolds at the right time.  For last two weeks, I was focused on doing professional certifications and made sure that my time  wasn’t wasted & my thoughts didn’t waiver but rather kept working on it to make sure that I get it. By God’s grace, I completed as well as earned the certification for what I worked for. But I learned an important lesson, every of one of us have been given a task or purpose that we need to work on and everything has a season.

In my profession, for me to become an Expert it takes time as well as we need to take one step at a time and be good in it. One of my uncle, was the chancellor in a college and during his period he made significant changes that helped the students to excel in their studies as well as took the college to the next well.  He was able to do it based on the experience he had, situations that he encountered and responsibilities that he was taking care of. But, he didn’t become a chancellor in a day, it took several years, he did his Master’s in his respective field, then became a researcher ,went on to be a Professor, later the Head of the Department & Board of directors, and finally became the Chancellor . I am proud of my uncle, at the same time he used to be a perfect example in living a fruitful life and a God-Fearing person.

During these days, I remembered him as well as understood that to reach our End Goal, we need to take on different seasons in our life with the boldness and promises that Christ has promised us. Every one of us hold onto promises that God would have given us in each stage of life and one thing for sure is that until all his promises are fulfilled in our life, we would be still on planet Earth living a life pleasing to him.  Also, we should know the season in which we are living and do the part given to us in the best possible way.

As a college student, I had the responsibility to study well and earn good grades.  Then, when I got my first job, my responsibility was to do my Job well and do it right. It doesn’t end there but rather work on your skill so that one day you would be a leader and help others in whatever ways possible. Also, taking care of our family and building them by keeping Christ as the cornerstone is far more important. We can be a good Boss in our organisation but if we don’t look after our family, everything that we have earned is a waste. Gift can’t be a replacement for you when you seemed to be missing in the family. It may be too much to handle, but it can all be handled when we have complete peace within ourselves by spending time with our Heavenly Father and reading his word that speaks life. Because, he alone can give us the peace that the world can’t give as well as the wisdom that surpasses all understanding.

 Take time for yourself, know your season and spend time with God to know what you need to do. You may be playing sports, involved in entertainment business, etc whatever field you are in, know your season, may be your success is just few steps away. Don’t give up on the promises that God gave you or on the talent that he has provided to you, it has its own season to be fulfilled and  when it comes true, it will show to his people that  He Lives and nothing is impossible for him. All you need to do, is to keep giving your best till then and wait for him to do the rest.

 The horse is prepared for the day of battle, but the victory belongs to the LORD [Proverbs 21:31]

Don’t Wait, Start Doing!!

Myself & Many of us have always been hesitant or on the back-foot when it comes to serving God in one way or the other or following the vision that God wants us to go for.  I encountered God during my college days and knew from that very moment, my life’s purpose was to serve God in all possible ways. But, I have been through situations where I was hesitant sometimes; when I had a chance to serve God because I thought for myself whether I wasn’t qualified or was worthy of it. I had to keep fighting with this thought which was a stumbling block for many days.

Finally, I took a decision that am going to start serving God in all possible way, no matter what am battling within myself. I kept telling myself that God is with me, within me and he would be happy to see me doing things for him. This is what I did

  • Whenever I got time, I started to invest on reading my bible or listening to worship albums and sermons.
  • Spent my weekends attending church, catching up with my church team and being part of the youth team.
  • I made sure that that my mind was occupied with things that I need to do for God in that week and kept moving one day at a time
  • I kept thinking what can be done New at church for making the Sunday service more enjoyable & create an amazing experience.

I understood that when I started to take the first step in involving myself in building his kingdom, I felt that God’s presence in my life was stronger than ever before & there was a constant push that made me go for it. God doesn’t look at us the way people do, HE designed you for a purpose and HE alone can make you walk through the very END.

Start serving God in any possible way you can, when you do, you will learn a lot about HIM and can see God’s Hand leading you all the way. It’s not an exam that you need to GET prepared, it’s about walking with the LORD in every day of your life. And, it starts right from the moment you gave your life to HIM.
