28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin:
29 And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.
What a BEAUTIFUL DAY! I am sitting outside on my front porch typing this as I look out at the gorgeous sunshine, feel the warmth and nice breeze and listen to the cheerful birds announcing the coming of Spring!
The past few weeks have been loaded with rain, snow and bitterly cold conditions. Yes, the Lord also made the Winter and has His purpose for it as well, although it seems that a large majority of mankind prefers warmer weather. It is hard, I think, to accept, times that 29 degrees IS the ideal temperature, simply because God created those conditions.
What would things be like if you had your way? Would it always be one particular season or maybe two?
If we had only Spring and Fall, there would be some who constantly suffers from allergies, in perpetual aggravation! The trees would go from flowered to colorful leaves without having time to rejuvenate. Although it would be pretty not to see bare nature, it was created that way for a reason and that purpose is a perfect one! Remember the “old” man we must completely strip off before we are able to put on the (more beautiful) “new” one? I tell you, God provides lessons everywhere, even in the changing of seasons and the simple complexities of nature!
Those of us who love summer would stay out in the sun and water constantly. Our toenails would stay painted and would not get the opportunity to strip off color allowing them to “breathe”. Others who don’t handle heat as well would be stuck inside every day, watching life happen from inside the house.
Some people ADORE wintertime, yes they do! What about the ones who enjoy snowboarding and skiing? This is not something one can easily do when it warms up outside, right?
Just think of the fabulous things each season brings. The glorious colors of Spring, Summer’s warmth and splashing in water, Fall’s beautiful leaves and the fun of playing like a child out in the snow Winter brings!
Again, let’s recognize that God is God and appreciate each day as He provides it! Isn’t’ LIVING a day much better than merely trying to figure out how to survive it? Where is the JOY in that?
You Are SO AWESOME
Not only do You bless us abundantly with Summer, Spring, Fall and Winter
You marvelously tie it together with Your Word
In how everything comes about in its own season
You love us enough to demonstrate how every one serves its purpose
In Ecclesiastes 3, You say
3 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;
3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
5 A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
6 A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away;
7 A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
8 A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.
You ARE the MOST HIGH
Please give us teachable hearts!
We bring You glory and honor and praise
For each day and every season
We WILL choose to rejoice and be glad
As our moments blossom into a lifetime
Each time we inhale and exhale
You’ve blessed us again!
Your Name Alone
In the Name of Jesus we pray
“How Great Thou Art”
