What to do when it seems like life sucks

What’s going on in your life right now?

If things are going well, good for you!  Remember to pay it forward so you can keep your momentum going.  If things are not so great, I have good news: your current situation is temporary.

there are only 2 seasons

While it’s easy to get distracted or even frustrated by a “bad” situation you might currently be facing, what would happen if you focused instead on the season?

When you take your focus off the situation and focus on the season you instantly empower yourself to leverage the situation (no matter how crappy it is) for your good.

Let me unpack this for you.

While life can find a million ways to knock you down (or lift you up), it all boils down to knowing what season you are in.  You are either in the season of cultivation or the season of harvest.

What season are you in?

If you are a spirit-led, good-hearted person yet you are experiencing pain, death, failure, illness, lack of clarity, lack of money, loneliness, fear or any kind of drama, you are in the season of cultivation.  This is where you are being shaped, molded, tested and prepared for your destiny.  This is the mess that a ministry grows out of.  This is the test that eventually becomes a testimony.  This is the intense heat and pressure that stones must endure before they become diamonds.  This is where the core of who you are is revealed.  This is where you get to see what YOU are really made of.  This, my sister, is the fire.

So what do you do in the midst of the situation?  Three things:

  1. Say to yourself, “this is my season of cultivation.”  This helps you to realize that you are being prepared for something great and that a breakthrough is coming your way.
  2. Recognize that the situation is only temporary.  Simply put, tough times cannot last forever unless you choose to allow them to.
  3. Sow a seed that contrasts your current situation.  In other words, resist the urge to hold back when you’re being cultivated and sow a seed that looks like the harvest you want to create. 

For instance, if you lack money, take what you have and give it to someone worse off than you.  If you are lonely, provide companionship to someone who has no one (nursing homes are filled with people like this) if you have experienced death in your family, go to someone and speak life over them and give them hope! 

Universal laws of reaping and sowing confirm that when we can sow into others, even when we are being tested and tried  (or cultivated) and even when our situation is as bad as it can possibly be, there is one guarantee: your harvest season is coming.

When it comes what will you experience? Joy, abundance, favor, grace, access, ease, increase and overflow.

Forget about the situation.  Focus on the season.  Get excited about the season!  What season are you in right now?
