I wait for the LORD, my whole being waits, and in his word I put my hope. Psalm 130: 5 NIV
Fall is beautiful! Soon, leaves will reveal magnificent colors. God will skillfully change the patterns of His design and allow us to enjoy the timing of His will. He will reward our patience as we WAIT to be blessed. And He will help us understand; everything has a season of purpose.
God will humble our hearts to see what waits to be discovered. Fallen leaves will separate from where they have been nurtured for many months. Strong winds will carry those that remain, and we will question where they will arrive.
God has a plan for our days! He decides when gifts of His greatness will be revealed. We too will face strong winds in our lives, but God will prepare us to hold on tight. While we are cradled in care, He will ready us for the moment we will release our fear and learn to faithfully TRUST.
He will guide us with mercy and grace and allow us to develop a heart of HOPE. God will renew and transform us through the seasons of our lives. He will guide us in the frailties of our falls and prepare us for what’s to come, even before we are strong enough to gratefully let go.
Dear God, You prepare us for the seasons of change and help us remember we have been created by You. We are grateful for ALL you provide. Help us find courage to remember there will be times we will fall. Catch us in Your arms of strength and hold us while we WAIT with You. Open our eyes to the gifts of Your greatness, as we welcome better days to come. We will trust in You and choose to remain faithful. Thank you, Lord for fall. It is such a beautiful blessing. Amen
