As I sat in my parent's home and looked out at the beautiful trees I could see the leaves ever so gently falling, consistently like the rain. Throughout the weekend I watched as the beautiful trees became more bare each day as they prepared for the winter that is coming. We too will have times where we must prepare for the winter. This made me think of how seasons in our life bring change as well.
As I have thought on the cyclical pattern of the seasons, I am assured of the constant nature of God. It is guaranteed that seasons will change and Winter will come. Even when Winter arrives....we are assured that Spring will break forth and new life will come again. In this ever changing life - this remains true; God is constant, He is ever present, He is the almighty creator and the lover of my soul. He has all of my seasons in His hand. Some will be harder than others but He promises to walk beside me and carry me if needed but, I am to trust Him in everyone of them. What a comfort to know....He is constant.
