Seasons of Change
The season is changing. The temperatures are cooler and there is a light breeze flowing as I write this.
Many of us anticipate this season of change every year, when breezes flow and colors are magnified, and we experience a new, refreshing time of change with much gratitude.
What about the seasons of change in our lives? Are we thankful for those?
Do we look forward to them with anticipation and expectation?
Or do we approach them with fear and dread?
God is continuously bringing us through different seasons of our lives.
For some, you are in a season of singleness. For others, you are starting a season of newly wedded bliss.
Others may be in a season of motherhood, while many have moved on to the season of being a grandparent.
Some are enjoying a season of empty nesting, while others may be navigating through a season of grief.
There are seasons of work, seasons of rest, seasons of illness, seasons of ministry, and so much more.
What season are you in right now?
Are you embracing the opportunity to learn and grow through this season?
Are you cherishing the moments of beauty, even through the pain?
Are you grateful for where God has lead you, and what you have learned through the process?
Fall is a time of vibrant color. I pray that as you go through this season of your life, whatever it may be, that your life is filled with the vibrant colors of peace, joy, gentleness, kindness, compassion, and love.
I pray that you continue to look ahead, without dread, to the abundant harvest God has for you.
And I pray that you do it all with a heart of thanksgiving to our glorious King.
”He changes times and seasons; he removes kings and sets up kings; he gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to those who have understanding.” (Daniel 2:21)
