"Cast your cares on the LORD and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous fall." Psalm 55:22
Fall is an amazing season. Leaves transform into beautiful gifts of color. God paints purpose in their design and reminds us how He creates purpose in us. He changes His awesome display in the timing of His love.
God reminds us; many leaves will not stay on the trees. They will separate from the place they’ve been nurtured for many months. Strong winds will carry them and we will wonder why they could not remain.
God provides in the timing of His will. He chooses when the gifts of His creation will be revealed. We too will face strong winds in our lives and God will provide the strength we need to hold on tight. He will help us remember why we have already been prepared for the moment we will need to let go and learn how it feels to fly.
God will remind us we have been nurtured by His love. He will lead us safely to His arms of strength and guide us by the mercy of His grace. He will help us develop a heart of faith, transform us through the seasons of life and guide us in the frailties of our falls. He will provide for our weakness, even before He determines we're strong enough to finally let go.
Dear God, You prepare us for the seasons of change in our lives and remind us we have been created to enjoy all You will provide. We will trust in You and wait to be nurtured by the promise of Your everlasting love. We will never forget where to find strength, as we trust in You. Amen
