Seasons in Life

Since I become a mom, my life changed.

From a working girl, I became a stay at home mom.

From someone who used to spend lots of time outside the house, I stayed home to  nurture my baby and be the primary care giver to her.

From being a Manila girl, I transferred to the South.

From earning a steady income myself, I was now dependent on my hubby’s income.

Through these changes, I lost connection with friends from work, from church and from my childhood. I knew that I have moved to another season in my life and it is up to me how to adjust.

I embraced motherhood and I enjoyed the change. I never knew that I was capable of loving, caring and being responsible entirely of another human being. God blessed me through this season of my life. I learned more about myself and came to know God even more intimately through this tough season.

There were days that I missed my “old” life but somehow, God has used motherhood to mature me in ways I never would have grown. I may have lost my friends but I realized, God puts different friends in our lives for different seasons. I may not have a steady income but I’ve learned to depend on God and He has never failed me in the past 11 years.

Seasons in life are God’s way of maturing us. Let us draw near to Him and He shall see us through each and every season.  t

  1. I can relate with these changes, Chris! It’s really our season to be mothers. I also have to rely on my hubby’s income. It does feel lonely sometimes because I have lost touch with my HS friends who are mostly single. Only two of them have kids, and they live far away. I guess it is indeed God’s will for me to concentrate on being a mom. I also talked about that in my latest post. 🙂

    • Thanks for letting me know that I am not alone Cym! 🙂 God uses these seasons in our lives to grow us and make us rely on Him more 🙂
