To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: Ecclesiastes 3:1 KJV
Are you ready for fall?
I was asked that question last week.
Fall? I’m still in July. Where did the summer go?
It’s not that I don’t like fall. I love fall with its delicious aromas, warm blankets, and firelight. But this year, we had a lot of rain, and most days I waited, stuck inside.
Isn’t that the way things go at times?
Stuck in a season.
Stuck on an idea.
Stuck with a feeling.
Stuck waiting for a miracle.
Here’s the thing. When I’m stuck, I’m no longer moving forward.
So I decided to get unstuck. Not in the disarray-discomposure-or-incoherence sort of way, but in the able-to-move-freely, happy-to-be-here, looking-forward-to-it kinda way. 🙂
Fall is a physical and spiritual reminder to let things go that I cannot change.
For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. Job 14:7 KJV
Even the dead leaves of autumn and the bald trees of winter testify of hope. There is always hope no matter the season. His name is Jesus.
Maybe I won’t get the answers I long for in every season. But I can’t allow it to steal my joy or my hope. Nor will I lounge about in the current season pondering over things I cannot change. I must move on.
Blessings await me in this coming season. If only I can recognize them when they appear.
The Lord is always with me wherever my foot may trod. He will not leave me nor forsake me. I have hope. I am not alone.
Neither are you, my friend. No matter the season you’re facing. You’re not alone. The Lord our God is with us leading the way.
Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore. Psalm 16:11 KJV
During this season, I plan to fall deeper in love with the Lord and let the dead things go. How about you?
Praying for you. Thank you for reading and commenting. You are appreciated.
