To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven…” Ecclesiastes 3:1
It’s hard to prepare our hearts, when we’re not ready to welcome what’s to come. But, God is in charge of the happenings of our days and we are in charge of accepting what He chooses to provide.
Sometimes, He offers blue-sky days of sunshine good. And, sometimes darkened days of clouded gray fill us with weathered thoughts of despair. But, God knows the heart of each and EVERY moment. And, He knows the reason for the seasons of our lives. He offers us His gift of light and allows us to use it for His glory.
Weather won't prepare us to embrace what’s to come. Christ will prepare us to find purpose in EVERY day, as we walk with Him. He will provide strength for the seasons of our lives and remind us who has a plan for our days.
Gifts of light will warm and prepare us to welcome what’s to come. The sun will shine with greater reward, if we patiently wait for days of gray to disappear. But, we must TRUST the One who will shine His light, even on the darkest days of our weathered doubt.
God is HERE and He loves us. He is a good, good Father!
Dear God, Thank you for warming us in the light of Your love. Open our hearts to Your will, so we will receive the glory of Your greatness. Warm us in the presence of Your love and help us never forget; joy WILL come when we choose to find strength in YOU. Amen
