I remember when I was a little girl thinking I would never be old enough for high school. I remember being in elementary school and having high schoolers babysit me. They would bring their homework to work on after we went to sleep. It would sit on the counter or in their purse. I would sneak it away and flip the pages of the spanish or history books dreaming of the day I got to do homework like them.
Well, against the odds it happened. Soon enough I was in high school and there I was dreaming of the days I would spend in college. I longed for moments of spontaneity and late night ice cream runs with my roommates.
Well, I made it to college, and again, I was always dreaming about what would come next. This was the pattern I was setting up in my life. I wanted the new, the next… and could not be satisfied with the here and now.
In A Woman Seeking God, you’ll be confronted with your ability to be content, or for me – my difficulty in doing so.
Ecclesiastes says there really is a season for everything, and as you read I think you’ll be reminded of the grace God has lavished on us, that He would give us different seasons so that we might experience and know Him best. Hold tight and trust in His works today, being content to seek God rather than a new season of life. There is a season and time for everything.
