PostSubject: Changing Seasons   Thu Sep 11, 2014 10:15 am



There is a time for everything,
   and a season for every activity under the heavens:
   a time to be born and a time to die,
   a time to plant and a time to uproot,
   a time to kill and a time to heal,
   a time to tear down and a time to build,
   a time to weep and a time to laugh,
   a time to mourn and a time to dance,
   a time to scatter stones and a time to gather them,
   a time to embrace and a time to refrain from embracing,
   a time to search and a time to give up,
   a time to keep and a time to throw away,
   a time to tear and a time to mend,
   a time to be silent and a time to speak,
   a time to love and a time to hate,
   a time for war and a time for peace.
ECCLESIASTES 3:1-8

I thought this topic was quite appropriate as Autumn arrives and Summer fades away. Perhaps God gave us the change of seasons to show us that change is good and very natural. The same can be for our own lives. My natural tendency is to cling to that which is familiar while resisting change. Granted, some things should never be relinquished, but for the most part, living a fulfilled life means learning to let go. Additionally, resistance to change in some ways, can impede our progress in our relationship with God.

Most people think the 60's rock group, The Byrds wrote these words, but King Solomon penned them as the Spirit of God inspired him. As we read from the Bible in the book of Ecclesiastes, there is a time for everything. Life's seasons are characterized in many different ways, and throughout each season God has something to teach us. God is relentless in how He demonstrates His love for us, but if we are resistant to the idea of change, then we may be resisting Him, too. God desires that we focus on Him. If we are forever looking in the rear-view mirror at a season that has passed, we may completely miss out on where God is taking us next.

Seasons and situations change, but God remains the same. Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. James 1:17 Let's welcome the changes He brings about in our lives and learn to appreciate the abundance of blessings He sends.

Insight: What keeps you from looking to the future? Do you ever cling to the past? Recall a good thing that has happened to you and realize that it was not a coincidence, but a gift from God. Thank Him for it.

Dear Lord, Thank you for the change you incorporate into my life. Help me to accept it and realize that it is good for me. Thank you for loving me and drawing me closer to Jesus Christ through change. May I never resist it and/or miss my blessings. In Jesus' Name I pray, Amen

And this is the testimony: God has given us eternal life, and this life is in His Son. He who has the Son has life, he who does not have the Son of God does not have life.
