For everything there is a season,
a time for every activity under heaven. (Ecclesiastes 3:1 NLT)
Your life is made up of many, "mini" assignments. The Apostle Paul had assignments in the book of Acts. We call these assignments, "journeys." Every assignment Paul engaged had two important elements; length and purpose. We can sound cool like T.D Jakes and make it rhyme by saying, "season and reason (in your best preacher voice)."
Every time you enter an assignment these two elements must be at the forefront of your mind.
Know that your assignment has an expiration date. There is a length to how long this assignment is. Enjoy it. Make use of everyday. Once you step into that city, the hour glass is going.
Your assignment also has a reason or purpose. Like Nehemiah, survey what your purpose may be there. What problem has God assigned you to solve?
People who look upon previous assignments in a negative manner did not keep the anatomy of the assignment at the forefront of their mind. Pray over it. Think about it. Journal. Don't leave this assignment not knowing this important principle.
