Tis a Season

Does that mean I will be in this season forever? Nope, at any given time this season may shift and change. Our schedules will either open up or become even busier than they already are. Or our priorities may change due to outside circumstances. But because I read in these simple verses that God is the one who sets out the seasons, I know that I don't have to stress or worry about what season is to come.
