Seasons not only break the monotony of sameness, they are necessary for productivity. Nothing can live in unbroken sunshine…Nonstop sunshine only creates a desert. We don’t enjoy storms, but they’re an essential part of a complete life, and the key to victory comes in finding how to weather the storms of life in such a way that they don’t dislodge us from our secret life in God.
