Care to go on a run with me?
On our run I would be thinking a lot about the seasons.
The seasons of the year. And the seasons of life. Truth be told, I've been working a lot on letting go these days. It's stunning to me how quickly life can change. Life is tough sometimes, but it's infinitely easier when you remember that God is in loving control of your life and when you remember to be thankful. Today I was so thankful to be able to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful fall foliage, reminding me that God has plans for me, wonderful plans, that I always have hope, that the Bible is not merely a guidebook for life but an anchor for the soul, and that when we move from one season of life to the next, the transition can be terrifying and yet there is something indescribably beautiful about it.
How are you handling the seasons of life? The changes God is allowing to happen to you? How committed are you to transitioning wisely and graciously?
Change is a necessary part of the Christian experience. Nothing develops our character like letting go and moving on. Let us leave our lives in God's hands without worry and fear, and then we shall be free to celebrate the new challenges -- and opportunities -- he sets before us.
