Season 3 is here!! A lot of time has been put into the making of this season. Hopefully you haven’t got sick of watching reruns of seasons 1 and 2. I promise this season was worth the wait!! I challenge all of you to count the number of different hair styles I have in this season haha. Maybe I’ll find a prize for someone who gets it right (although as I type this I now realize I’ll have to watch and count as well. Either that or ask Sean who spent endless hours in front of the computer editing and has all of the styles forever embedded in his head).
Have you ever had a time where you were really longing for something and it just didn’t happen? There have been so many times in my life where I want things to happen and they don’t. I’ll find myself asking God what is going on. Asking him why it can’t just have things happen the way I want them to. It’s like I’m questioning God’s plan, like I know better than He does. Ecclesiastes 3:11 says, “Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time. He has planted eternity in the human heart, but even so, people cannot see the whole scope of God’s work from beginning to end.” That verse is pretty crazy to think about. First, God has made everything beautiful, but for it’s own time. Second, God put eternity in our heart, yet we still cannot see everything.
God has made everything beautiful, but if we take it out of it’s own time it can turn out pretty ugly. God has placed a huge vision and calling on my life. It is an awesome and beautiful thing. There have been times where I tried to force situations that I thought led to this. Things didn’t turn out as well as I had planned and they weren’t as beautiful anymore. Then there have been times in my life where I was just going along and God dropped something on me that I didn’t expect. God would show me the next step and lead me there, and it would blow my mind. I look back and think, “Wow how silly was I for thinking those other things would be the answer.”
God has also placed eternity in our heart. That is awesome, really no other way to describe it. But even with that we can’t see the whole scope of things. Kind of doesn’t make sense. Our God really is a big God. Even when we think we see it all, the truth is we don’t. When we think we have things figured out and think we know where things are heading, we probably don’t. But God does. He can see the whole scope of His work from beginning to end. He knows each step, He knows every turn, He knows every hill and valley. He knows when we take a wrong turn, He knows when we take ourselves down a dead end. He knows how to take all those things and make them beautiful.
God has given us all a calling and purpose (Jer 29:11). Sometimes we can wonder why things aren’t going how we pictured they would, but the Bible reassures us that God has made everything beautiful, but it is only beautiful when completed in His timing. I think season 3 is a perfect picture of this. There were many times we tried to rush to get things done. At one point we were trying to move so fast that I was not going to be able to be a part of the OLU segments. Instead, we took a step back and slowed things down. I think the results are so much more beautiful than what would have been produced if we rushed things along. I think you guys will agree once you see season 3.
