Don’t you just love this time of the year? The temperature is dropping, the days are getting a little shorter, and the leaves will soon be changing colors. When you walk outside, it is actually refreshing.
Of course, we know why it’s like this – God set the process in motion. As the Earth moves to a different location, things change. The sun is always there – shining – but the Earth moves closer and further, closer and further. And seasons change.
Your life is like that, too. Sometimes things are great, and your heart soars. Sometimes things are so-so, and you muddle through. Sometimes things are hard, and you suffer under the pain of life. Sometimes life is good. Seasons change.
But like the sun – the Son is always there – shining. We move closer and further. Life moves us closer and further. But the Son is always there.
The Earth doesn’t have the ability to change its course; it simply moves. But you CAN change your course. You can choose not to move further. When life tries to move you further, you can choose not to let it. God isn’t going to move away, and He will help you draw closer if you will let Him. Let the Son set you free, so you can be truly free.
One thought on “Seasons Change”
Thanks for this message, Jay! I might use some of it in an upcoming LifeWay SS lesson I’m writing. By the way, did you know there is a new book on the topic of seasons of life written by one of the Blackaby sons? It sounds like a great read, and I’ve ordered one.
