But you can't pray away life's seasons! God has a purpose for not allowing you to be fruitful all the time.
Real growth requires seasons of struggle as well as seasons of success. Your seasons of struggle destroy pride in your own ability, increase your dependence on God, and cause you to say, like Paul did, 'Not that we are sufficient of ourselves...our sufficiency is from God – 2 Corinthians 3:5
These are humbling experiences, but you need them. Your life is like a tree: in winter it silently refurbishes its strength, preparing for the next season of fruitfulness. As you look back on your life's accomplishments you'll notice that they are seasonal.
There are seasons of rain as well as sunshine, and each season serves an important purpose. That's why it's a mistake to make a permanent decision based on a temporary circumstance or changing emotion. Sometimes the situation doesn't call for action, it calls for patience and trust in God. God is making the circumstances you're in today work for your good.
2 Corinthians 4:17
For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all
