How to Get Unstuck from Your Winter Season

Inspiration MinistriesBy Inspiration Ministries2 Minutes

If where you are today is not where you want to be, you may be stuck in a season of yesterday’s faults, failures, and sins—also known as a winter season.

Do you feel as though you’ve taken up residence in a valley of unfulfilled promises and broken dreams? Then it’s time to move on to a new season that is hopeful, genuine, and lasting.

What’s the secret to the lasting transformation you seek? Repentance. A lasting transformation always begins with repentance.

A Season of Repentance

Unlike popular opinion, repentance doesn’t have to be tear-filled or emotionally charged. It simply has to be a desire to change—spoken from deep within your heart.

In fact, God isn’t moved by your tears unless you’ve granted Him full access to your heart; so repentance has to first grow from a deep desire there. It’s only then that He can guide you out of the darkness you’re experiencing.

As you prayerfully speak to Him, look to Proverbs 4:18 for His promise:

“The path of the righteous is like the light of dawn, that shines brighter and brighter until the full day.”

Once you repent, you’ll be taking a first step toward a brighter season.

Remember: It’s the Beauty of God’s Timing

Some people experience an immediate transformation as they move away from old habits and dark seasons. For example, many people who have been addicted to drugs or alcohol find they’re immediately set free from their bondage after they’ve surrendered to God.

For others, finding freedom takes time, like the melting away of an old season.

Either way, don’t become discouraged. Spiritual growth and transformation are a process rather than a one-time event. God’s plan for your new beginning will be revealed to you in His time.

Until then, hold strong to your faith and obedience. Pray from your heart to receive the full measure of God’s blessings. Trust in Him. He will let the light of your testimony grow brighter and brighter until all can see the incredible transformation He has brought about in your life!
