Trusting God in All Things

For everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven... A time to search and a time to quit searching. A time to keep and a time to throw away. ECCLESIASTES 3:1, 6 NLT 

“There is a time for everything,” says the wise writer of Ecclesiastes. It’s a phrase that has echoed down through the centuries, and it is still true today. Our lives are made up of different seasons, each with their own unique challenges and blessings. Whether we are experiencing joy or sorrow, victory or defeat, there is always something to be learned and gained from every season. 

Yet, no matter what the season is in which we find ourselves, one thing remains constant: letting go is never easy. We all wish for more time, more opportunities to experience happiness, more chances to right wrongs and make amends. But the reality is that nothing lasts forever—except the love the Lord has for us—and there comes a time when we must let go and move on. 

This can be especially difficult when we are facing sorrow or loss. The pain of saying goodbye can be overwhelming, and we may find ourselves struggling to come to terms with what has happened. But even in the midst of our grief, we can find comfort and strength in knowing that God is with us. He is present in every moment of our lives, and He has a purpose and a plan for each season we experience. 

If you find yourself in a difficult season today, take heart that you are not alone. God is with you, and He will help you to let go and move on. Take this time to present yourself before Him, confess your sins, and tell Him of your struggles. Let the Holy Spirit minister to your wounded heart and teach you to trust in God’s plan. 

On the other hand, if you are in a season of joy and happiness, don’t take it for granted! Enjoy every moment and give thanks to God for His goodness and grace. Remember that every season has its end, but that doesn’t mean the end of all joy and happiness. God has a plan for your life, and He will continue to bless you in every season.  

In whatever season you find yourself, choose to let go and trust in God’s plan. He has a purpose for your life, and He will help you to grow and thrive in every season. Take heart—and know that God is with you always! 


Lord God, I enter Your gates with thanksgiving and Your courts with praise. I give You thanks and magnify Your name. God, I praise You for You are good and Your love endures forever. Your faithfulness continues throughout all of time. This day, and every day, I give You glory for all Your wonderful deeds. Amen.
