    An Understanding Of Each Season For Our Lives

    Richard Blackaby in his new book, “The Seasons of God” published by Multnomah Books shows us How the Shifting Patterns of Your Life Reveal His Purposes for You.

    From the Back cover: What season of life are you in?

    Each of us goes through periods of life that have a certain character—a few months or a few years, good times or difficult circumstances, times of brilliant joy or periods of dark clouds. Often we say, “It’s just the season of life I’m in.”

    But did you know that just as God has purposes for the seasons of nature, he also uses seasons in your life to grow you, work with you, and talk to you?

    Richard Blackaby explains in The Seasons of God how understanding the principles of the seasons can offer us hope, direction, insight, and intimacy with God himself. It’s a thoughtful exploration of God’s patterns at work in our lives—how His will is being carried out in the best way…at the best time.

    Your plans, your relationships, your career, your ministry—all have their unique God-intended moment. God’s Word expresses it this way: “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.”

    So what’s your season of life? And what is God telling you through the season you’re in?
    The Bible tells us, “For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under Heaven.” Every year we go through four seasons: Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall. Each season brings its own weather and conditions. We expect them and know there is a time limit for each season, though for some, like Winter, we wish it might end quicker. Well God has the exact same seasons for us. And each of our seasons has a time limit that is known only to God and some of them we wish might end sooner. Pastor Blackaby gives us an understanding of the seasons of God. In Three parts: Embracing The Pattern, Embracing Each Season and Thriving In All Our Seasons he shows us what we need to understand so we might grow in each of the seasons. For some of us this book will be a revelation. For some of us it will be a refresher. Whatever the category we fall in ”The Seasons of God” is a must. I recommend reading this book and giving it as a gift to friends and family.

The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides Concerning the Use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.”
