The Cycle of Life

Many of us view our lives like the days of the week, Monday comes and we wish it was Friday; Sunday comes and we wish Monday would never come. Of course it is different with everyone, because someone’s Monday may be another person’s Friday. The issue is, that life is a cycle of events, stretched across multiple days, years and months, and even with the best laid plans, nothing is guaranteed. Some of us develop a foundation, where no matter what happens or when it happens, we are able to turn a situation and make it into a positive one.

The cycle of life may seem like a repeat, but it is that repeat that breeds new life into the old one. Repeat is not always a bad thing; it just means doing something over again either to perfect it or make sure it works the way it is supposed to. Life is that way because like the human body, the arm and the leg have different functions, yet are connected together. Look at the functions of your body as the seasons, when it is cold, you wear a sweater to protect your body from freezing to death. Does it mean everything that happened in the summer was bad? No. It just means the current season brings something different, and requires something different to get through it.


Ecclesiastes 3:1-2 explains that everything under the earth has a purpose. It could be cold in one place and hot in another because that is what life is like.

You have to understand that a season is temporary, because when you plant, you do not harvest the same day. Life will seem like planting sometimes, and seem like harvesting at other times. In between planting and harvesting, a lot of maintenance has to be done to ensure success.

Seasons are like cycles, they come and go, but it is what happens in between that counts. You can envision yourself to be anything you want, but to actually get into who you want to be, you have to have the tools necessary to handle anything you encounter. You have to know that God knows the season you are in, and even before it started, God had prepared you to handle what the season would bring.

The cycles will always come and go, but you have to learn what cycle you are in, and plan accordingly, because every cycle might be different, but if you understand the cycle of life, it won’t matter what season you encounter or what it brings, you will always be able to handle it. Know that the God who created the season understands what takes to get through every season, and He made you with every step and season in mind. Develop a foundation, make it a God foundation, and no season shall be able to do anything God did not prepare for you.

Cycles exist for the same reason you go through the day doing different things. Morning shall come, and you will have to go through something different. You can get through anything, as long as you do not lose focus of your goal.
