Opportunity in Season: Are you Sleeping or Succeeding?

Purpose2Have you ever felt like maybe you missed it? Or maybe that everything you believed that life should be was far from the life that you were living? I’ve been told so many times and believe it to be true that this is my year. But it sure doesn’t seem that way sometimes. Life isn’t always easy. Opposition comes.

This just shows the importance of knowing the season that you are in. I love reading the book of Proverbs and the book of Psalms! I was introduced to the Passion Translation at Women of Purpose in November by another attendee and I’m officially hooked. I highly recommend getting it. Right now I have Psalms, Proverbs, and John. Some of the Proverbs were really standing out to me, but one in particular really set me to thinking:

“Know the importance of the season you’re in And a wise son you will be, But what a waste when an incompetent son sleeps through his day of opportunity.” Proverbs 10:5 (Passion Translation)

What are you here for? Why are you where you happen to be? Do you know why you are here?

Sometimes the place we are looks nothing like the place that we know we are called to. God has something in every season. Don’t miss the beauty that is in it. Don’t miss your purpose in it. You are called to be where you are right now. This world can’t afford you missing it. 

What are you called to in this season that you find yourself in? Where does that fit in the big picture?
