It's the time of the year for leaves to transform into warm colors and quickly disappear to the ground. It leaves trees looking bare and barely alive. All too quickly, the branches become covered in snow while we brace for winter. The changing of seasons is a phenomenon we can count on, and even have it predicted on calendars. Daylight Savings Time triggers the flip flop cycle of turning clocks back an hour and pushing them forward an hour. Fall Back, Spring Ahead. For a few days, our bodies seem confused as we try to adjust to the new schedule of day and night.
Sometimes, our lives are like the changing of the seasons. Good times give way to not-so-good days. Yet, we can be hopeful in stormy seasons that "this too shall pass." But, sometimes, life seems off schedule, like our clocks just skipped time. Circumstances take us by surprise, and we have to adjust to a new reality. Be encouraged, that no matter what season life is displaying for you, God is never taken by surprise. He is the only constant in our life. He alone is Truth. He is our firm foundation. He is the Bright and Morning Star.
In all seasons, look to Jesus for guidance. He never leaves or forsakes us. He is always right on time.
