He brings the seasons

johnson_paulaI love November. The weather is cooler and the leaves change, making the scenery as beautiful to the eyes as pumpkin spice is delicious to the tongue.

After spending two years in Florida in the absence of changing seasons, my husband and I will enjoy the fall here in the Eastern Territory. In just a few weeks, we’ll celebrate Thanksgiving and relish the final days of autumn.

Seasons vividly display God’s faithfulness. I’m always assured that autumn, winter, spring, and summer will come. Lamentations 3:22–23 reminds us, “The LORD’S loving kindnesses indeed never cease, for His compassions never fail. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” (NASB)

We can depend on a faithful, loving God to bring the seasons and to also guide us through the seasons of our lives. We can find great comfort and assurance in His faithfulness and love.

Sara Groves sings:
Morning by morning I wake up to find
The power and comfort of God’s hand in mine
Season by season I watch Him, amazed
In awe of the mystery of His perfect ways
All I have need of, His hand will provide
He’s always been faithful to me.

As we celebrate this season of thanksgiving, God’s faithfulness is at the top of my gratitude list. He truly has been faithful in my life. May you experience His faithfulness and give thanks to the Lord!
