How to Stay Steady During Life's Whirlwinds
"There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens … I have seen the burden God has laid on men. He has made everything beautiful in its time" (Ecc. 3:1,10-11, NIV).

Living in Michigan I've come to understand that seasons are inevitable. Whether I like it or not, one day the wind will shift and the temperature will drop and a new season will blow in and overtake the old. Knowing these seasonal changes are a fact of life, I've learned to prepare-to adjust and adapt with each turning season. I've also learned that while seasons are certain, they are not final.

As it is in nature, so it is in life. Life is filled with various seasons. More than a stagnant succession of sameness, life is an ever-changing, ever-moving journey.

Some of life's seasons are enjoyable, anticipated, even relished. Others are not. Some seasons are planned for, long awaited and dreamed of. And still, some seasons come abruptly and unexpectedly. They can be painful and difficult, dry and tiresome.

Ecclesiastes 3 reminds us that there are times and seasons of every kind-seasons of life and death, work and rest, wounding and healing, tearing down and building up, sorrow and joy, hatred and love, sickness and health, warfare and peace, plenty and want, and frustration and fulfillment.

Whatever season of life we are in, however-whatever we must endure-there's a promise from God, a promise of beauty. For God's Word says, "He has made everything beautiful in its time. read more

God Helped Kimalea Discover the Place She Needed to Be!

Watch Kimalea's Story"I never felt like I was
fighting my cancer alone."

Just a few years after my husband passed away, I was diagnosed with Stage 2 breast cancer. My friend recommended Cancer Treatment Centers of America® (CTCA) because of their unique treatment approach.

The moment I walked into CTCA®, I felt the presence of God and His healing power. As a woman of faith, I prayed through my treatments - and the Pastoral Care team prayed with me.

I went to CTCA for their medical expertise, integrated care and spiritual support. Today, I'm back to my active life and feel truly blessed that God put me on the path to this wonderful place.
