Good Morning, Friend................. Shhhhh, it's the wee hours of the night! I had a hard day yesterday, but then, ALL AT ONCE, it was AUTUMN!!! It's not only my favorite season, but it's also my most favorite color. Come on in and get comfy. Yes, of course, your favorite place at the table has been saved.
"For everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven." (Ecclesiastes 3;1) To everything, there is, God's Timing. Though most times, I do not understand, or LIKE, waiting! Maybe I need Patience, maybe I need reminding that God is GOD, and I AM NOT. "Every purpose under Heaven." WOW........... It's all so hard to even fathom!
Autumn - sweet Autumn....................... Cooler temps, crisp air, start a fire and watch it burn, sweaters, hot chocolate, falling leaves, pumpkins to carve and pie to make. From September to December, I am reminded of CHANGE! God Created four seasons for us to enjoy. And, it just so happens that I live in a place where I get to see ALL OF THEM!!! For that, I am Grateful.
Things change, plans often fail, and life is just hard. I wonder how the world can live without the Hope of Jesus! To only rely on themselves - How tragic! The Bible doesn't say being a Christian would be easy. In fact it says, in John 16;33, "In this world you will have trouble." But, OH LOOK, we have Hope, for it then says, "But take heart! I have overcome the world." That means you and I are OVERCOMERS!!!
And, if God is for us, which He is, then I could care less who is against us. Though all around us is changing, Malachi 3;6 Promises, "For I am the LORD, I change not." SWEET........... Another thing I am Grateful for! God's Word is TREASURE. In it, we find every answer to every question we have. Hope for every doubt. Love for when we feel unlovely. Peace for every battle. Shelter for every storm. A firm Foundation. Jesus is our Way Maker and Chain Breaker!
God can be Trusted in every season of life we face. Let's keep our eyes on HIM, not this world. Let's listen to HIS VOICE, not the screams and chaos of this world. In Him, we find rest for our weary hearts. He holds us through our tears, and in our Joys. When we Repent, sweet Forgiveness, the breaking of chains and the cleansing of our sins. Jesus makes ALL THINGS BETTER!!! Invite Him in, and let Him be Lord of your EVERYTHING!!! "For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all." (2 Corinthians 4;17) When that is just too hard to believe, BELIEVE IT ANYWAY!!!!!
