A friend wrote she is in a “fiercely hard season.” Because of that context, she was particularly thankful for a sweet day reprieve. Context often clarifies our perspective and keeps us in check. A fiercely hard season not only allows a deep background on which we experience moments of brilliant, bold joy, but it also makes it clear how ridiculous we were to complain, mope, and quit during minimally hard seasons. Hard seasons and fiercely hard seasons are very different.
Invite the season you’re in to provide you with a broad perspective of your life. Wring out the purpose every season of the journey.
