Change of Season is Here!

Change of Season is Here!

autumn

I have several large Oak trees in the front and back of our house which are simply loaded with acorns!  Do you know what acorns sound like when they come showering down from these Oak trees onto a roof of a house or tin roofing?  Let’s just say before the foliage really turns brilliant colors, the acorns falling and pinging are always my sign that autumn is well on its way and that a change of Season is Here!

For the most part, I love the change in seasons in the natural as there are obvious signs everywhere, but do you know in our own lives, especially spiritually, when changes are coming we sometimes are taken by surprise.  Were there signs?  I believe sometimes there are obvious signs and then other times, the signs are a little more subtle.  How do you prepare for change? Or can you prepare for it?

I am a firm believer that nothing touches my life that is not filtered through God!  Yes that is a bold statement because face it we go through some pretty bad things!  God didn’t send those bad things to me, but if they come He helps me to navigate through all of it.

John 10:10 King James Version (KJV)

10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Have I ever questioned God as to why I’m going through this painful situation or why I had to go through them in the past?  Absolutely, but do you know when I look back I can always see that He was with me, even when I didn’t know Him or know He was at the time.

I don’t know about you, but I’ve gone through pretty painful things that I really thought were going to take me out, but I am still here!   Why?  Because someone may be reading this post right now that needs to know that this painful thing you are going through has come to pass.  Whether things are good or bad, they will always change!  Just like the seasons, they are only here for season.  This thing that is so painful or so joyful will eventually change into another season etc.  This is how life is, we go through seasons that are good, but then we go through seasons that are harsh like a winter full of blizzards that have totally left us wondering will our lives ever be “normal” again?  Will the landscape of my life that I once knew to be wonderful, ever be the same?  Life is all about change and how we grow through the changes.

Do I have all the answers? Absolutely not, and I dare not pretend that I do, however I honestly know the One who  is the answer and His name is Jesus.  I know that whatever season I have gone through, my relationship with Him has been an anchor for my soul. I have found that His words are true and that He is trustworthy.   I love Psalms 91 because the words in this Psalm have spoken to me many, many times to calm me and to keep me regardless of what season I am going through.

 Psalm 91King James Version (KJV)

91 He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.

2 I will say of the Lord, He is my refuge and my fortress: my God; in him will I trust.

3 Surely he shall deliver thee from the snare of the fowler, and from the noisome pestilence.

4 He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shalt thou trust: his truth shall be thy shield and buckler.

5 Thou shalt not be afraid for the terror by night; nor for the arrow that flieth by day;

6 Nor for the pestilence that walketh in darkness; nor for the destruction that wasteth at noonday.

7 A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee.

8 Only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.

9 Because thou hast made the Lord, which is my refuge, even the most High, thy habitation;

10 There shall no evil befall thee, neither shall any plague come nigh thy dwelling.

11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.

13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

14 Because he hath set his love upon me, therefore will I deliver him: I will set him on high, because he hath known my name.

15 He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him, and honour him.

16 With long life will I satisfy him, and shew him my salvation.

 

I pray that you will find peace, joy and comfort in this season for your Spirit, Soul (your mind, will, and emotions) and in your body, regardless of the season that you may be going through! This too shall pass!

Please feel free to comment, I would love to hear from you!
