Seasons come and go rather quickly these days, changes have become the new constant. A year begins and it’s almost June already. The first blossoms of spring are almost a memory and the heat of summer will soon be the daily norm. With the rapid change of daily routines I find myself greeting each new day with a mixture of excitement and apprehension.
I look out the window as I listen to the birds full of cheer, bringing a sense of hope for the beautiful wonders of a new day. Yet in the back of my head I hear the little voice that asks the questions, what might change by the end of the day?, will it be painful or frightening?, will I know the answers?
Each new season brings both adventure and challenge. Each new season closes a door and opens a door. Each new season results in letting go and receiving new. But no matter the season, no matter the change, I serve a God who is always constant and true. Nothing I face, nothing that comes my way takes Him by surprise. I can trust in the assurance that He has already made a path before me to bring me safely through each and every moment of each and every new season.
Proverbs 3:5-5 “Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. In all thy ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct thy paths.”
One thought on “Each Season”
With your positive attitude, ability to notice beautiful birds even on a day when you are tired and afraid, both as a result of your deep, deep faith, you will always be protected and filled, as will those who are fortunate enough to know you.
I pray for you to have additional rest, strength, and peace as you navigate this season.
