This is my favorite time of year. Seriously. I love the fall, so much. If you don’t, you’re wrong. Sorry. You just are. If you need some convincing as to why this is the best time of the year, let me help you…
- It’s cool outside, but not cold.
- Football, of every kind.
- I feel comfortable eating soup and oatmeal, things I won’t do when it’s hot.
- Oh, it’s not hot.
- Golf courses aren’t crowded.
- Basketball season has begun! #GoGrizz
- I can wear sweaters, hoodies, and sweatshirts, cause it’s not hot!
- Schedules are regular cause school is in session.
- It’s just beautiful outside. Every. Single. Day.
I could go on and on, but you get the point. I’d just talk more about sports and the weather… Anyway, I do love this season. It’s my favorite. Has been. Will be. Love it completely. Here’s what else I know, it changes. Seasons always change. What’s here now won’t be here for long. It’ll be rainy and frigid in no time, and that will be followed immediately by humidity, heat, and high electric bills (cause we’d like to keep it like fall on the inside all the time). The seasons I love will change. The seasons I hate will to. This is critical for all of us to remember, whatever you think about this season… it will change.
Life is full of seasons as well. Seasons we love. Seasons of promotion and prosperity. Seasons where our kids listen and the bills are paid. Seasons where he breaks up with you and there’s organizational turnover. Seasons you enjoy and seasons you hate. It’s the difficulty we feel in one season that makes us grateful in the next. It’s the pain of one that make the joy of the next so amazing.
Whatever season you’re in right now,
know that it will change.
It might improve. A front you didn’t see might come through. Can you say “cold snap”? Whatever you’re in right now is just a season. That’s all this is. It will change. Be certain of that. Let it give you hope. Let it cause you to prepare. Seasons change. Your season will too.
However, you can know this… God will not change. He is always faithful. He is always close. He is always concerned. He is always there.
Your season will change, but your God will not.
