Five Minute Friday {Season}

Linking up with FMF again. It’s been awhile! Missed last week cause I was on a megabus to Chicago (another story for another day) but I loved the prompt, SEASON, so here we go:



When life gives you lemons,

we make lemonade,

as the saying goes.

But what do you do

when life

gives more than a lemon?

When life gives you foiled plans,

broken dreams,

unanswered prayers–

What do we make out of them?

When the seasons change

from summer breezes

to falling Autumn leaves

to Winter chills

and Christmas thrills–

everything has a season. Everything has a place.

Until it doesn’t.

So, what do we do

when the seasons change

but we stay stagnant,

afraid of the future our plans gave way to?

What do we do

when life gives us more

than we ever imagined

and we don’t know what to do with it?

Seasons change.

Life gives us seasons– to mourn,

to dance,

to love, to die.

Scripture tells us

everything has a season.

Everything has something it can be reasoned to,

an explanation

or something to be made from it.

But life, it seems,

doesn’t always show us

how to move with the seasons unexpected,

how to make lemonade out of something other than a lemon.

What do we do

when we don’t know what to do?

How can we change with the seasons

if we don’t know what season we’re in?


This is a bit scattered, but it’s been in my brain awhile. Seasons are so weird to me– it’s supposed to be this period of time where things change yet stay the same, then off to the next one. Basically, I’m stuck in this in-between season where I don’t know how to change, yet can’t stay where I’m at.

Basically, I don’t know what season I’m in. I don’t know what to do next.

I just hope something will come around and help me figure it out.

  1. Oh my gosh, Jordan…your post got me this week. I didn’t read it until after I wrote mine (like the white rabbit I’m running dreadfully late late late), but it really goes hand-in-hand with mine. Sweetie, you’re gonna be fine. Don’t you for one minute doubt that God has a plan for your life. I have a feeling the upcoming seasons of your life will be your very best!!! Hugs!
