It is sort of a cheesy Christian thing to say things like “in this season of my life” or “this has been a rough season of life” and sometimes “I am excited for this season of my life”. And as much as I despise those cheesy Christian quotes (like these) I actually like this one. It really is so true! Just like the seasons change and everything around you has a different look and feel, life can be so much the same way! I have gone through many definite seasons in my 23 years of life.

I feel like I am in a huge season of waiting right now and my un-patient self is less than loving it.
In marriage: The Hubs and I have been married almost two years, so among our friends we are almost the “old” married couple now, bye bye newlywed status.
We have discussions about when to buy a house or start a family but the answer to those exciting things right now is… wait.
I graduated in December with my elementary teaching degree and now I just have to wait until schools start interviewing for next school year. More waiting.
The Hubs and I have an exciting opportunity to get involved in something we are excited and passionate about (more on that in the future) but it also requires more… yep, waiting.
So I have deemed this season of my life, The Season of Waiting. And like I mentioned before, I was not so blessed with the gift of patience. So in many ways, this season is s-u-c-k-i-n-g!
Wouldn’t it be nice if there was a book that provided encouragement for times like this, when we are struggling with a particular season in our life and we can’t do much about it but wait? What’s that? There is a book that provides encouragement for times like this, when we are struggling with a particular season in our life and we can’t do much about it but wait?
While I am in this waiting season these verses will be my mantra[s]! So thankful that I serve a God who has a plan and knows exactly what he is doing!
