Seasons Come and Seasons Go......

There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under heaven.
                                       Ecclesiastes 31:1



Season of Spring................


 
Season of Summer



Season of Fall......



Season of Winter................

Just as there are seasons of Spring, Summer, Winter and Fall to weather, there are seasons in our lives as well......

The rain will come in the tears we cry, the sun will shine in brightness of our days, the storms will shake us when trouble comes, there will be newness in our lives, there will be seasons of waiting and there will be seasons of goodness.  There will even be powerful seasons of despair for us to live through from time to time...

Some of these seasons we will like and some we won't!  But...it is in those seasons of discouragement, sadness, sorrow or the longing for something, that we must remember it is only for a SEASON!

Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of JOY!
                                          Psalms 126:5

The Holy Spirit seeks to assure us that in the presence of God we will find PEACE....


                          Seek God
                          Trust God
                          Love God
                          Lean on God

This one thing we should always keep in our hearts,  God walks with us in the seasons of goodness as well as in the seasons of difficulty! Find the Hope you need to wait for the next season.


Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

I'm not sure why the Lord placed this on my heart today....I don't know if the Lord is speaking to me, or if HE gave me this to encourage someone else that may be going through a difficult season right now......One thing I do know is that we must always TRUST God!

I put that Isaiah verse in my mother's funeral program. It is in the valleys that we grow. I love the picture of you! But that beautiful flower close-up, WOW!!!! Did you take that?

Don't know why, but we always seem to be closer to the Lord during our "down" times. Think it's because we think WE can handle everything when the going is good, but realize what God really does for us when we need him. Love you....good to see you and Miss Priss yesterday.
