Week of May 10 - Going with the Flow
Scripture: “There is an appointed time for everything. And there is a time for every event under heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3:1
Seasons come and seasons go. We can count on it. Summer fades into fall, fall into the crisp winter season, which sprouts anew each year into spring. Spring saunters into summer and the cycle continues. It doesn’t matter what part of the country you live in, seasons are evident.
It’s inevitable: CHANGE HAPPENS. Change can be perceived as good, like springtime bursting forth: job changes, birth, children moving out, new friendships, or going to college. Change can be perceived as negative, moving into the winter season: job loss, death, children moving out, friendships ending, or divorce/separation.
Cycles continue, life progresses on and CHANGE HAPPENS.
There is a tension that happens when we are in the midst of change. Living in the middle of what was and the hope of what is yet to come is challenging. We have to LEARN that we can trust God with change, even when we don’t see the end.
Embrace CHANGE as an opportunity to LEARN something you didn't know about yourself, loved ones and God.
Let Us Pray: God thank you for the change in seasons that we can embrace the newest that is before us. Lord we thank you for the change that is occuring within us on this day. As we embrace our change we pray that you will be pleased with us. That we will be the salt in the earth to draw the unsaved, burden, grieved and hopeless ones to you, in Jesus name Amen!
