In like a lion and out like a lamb.

In a few more days, March will be history for another year.  I have heard this saying about the month of March all my life, "In like a lion and out like a lamb."

March can be pretty fickle when it comes to weather.  It can be 70 degrees and sunny one day and a foot of snow the next. (At least here in Michigan.)  One proven fact about a Michigan March is that it doesn't matter if one day is sun and another is snow...eventually spring is coming and with it the promise of more pleasant days than unpleasant ones.

Life can be a bit like the month of March.  We have to remember that when difficulties come our way that it is only for a season.  

It's a proven fact that eventually spring is coming and winter is ending.  

Ecclesiastes 3 reminders us that no matter what season we presently are in-- change will come.

For everything there is an appointed time,
and an appropriate time for every activity on earth:
A time to be born, and a time to die;
a time to plant, and a time to uproot what was planted;
A time to kill, and a time to heal;
a time to break down, and a time to build up;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance.
A time to throw away stones, and a time to gather stones;
a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
A time to search, and a time to give something up as lost;
a time to keep, and a time to throw away;
A time to rip, and a time to sew;
a time to keep silent, and a time to speak.
A time to love, and a time to hate;
a time for war, and a time for peace.

In this scripture, you may have identified the season of life you are in right now, but don't dwell on the cold and negative days of winter because a season change is coming. 

Just as March turns to April and April turns to May...get ready...because what came into your life like a lion is about to go out like a lamb.

It Takes Time

Years ago, I was counseling kids camp and about midway through the week, I received a phone call from my husband.  He informed me that o...
