The colors of fall where I live are simply breathtaking. As I looked at the colorful trees today, all I could think was how beautiful the change is, even if the leaves are old and passing away. We are beyond blessed to watch the seasons change. Our life is constantly changing also, and God tells us that we will go through different seasons. But that is absolutely ok, because just like Fall leaves and flowers pass away, winter waters the ground and spring brings new life that will be kissed by the warmth and brightness of summer. In our lives we will also experience season changes. There will be times of pain and loss and times of joy and happiness. We do not remain in the same season forever though, take a look at the verse below:
“There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under the heavens.” Ecclesiastes 3:1 (NIV)
We may not understand God’s timing for the season that we are in, but the only thing that we truly need to understand is that God has a plan. Whether his current plan is that we are in a season of pain to help us grow or a season of joy to teach us to be thankful, he knows right where we need to be, right at this very moment in time.
