ready for a change

"Praise be to the name of God for ever and ever; wisdom and power are His. 
21 He changes times and seasons; He deposes kings and raises up others.
He gives wisdom to the wise
 and knowledge to the discerning." Daniel 2:20-21

With the recent heat waves, no one can doubt what season we are in.  But evidently, i am wrong.  On my morning walks, there's a lone tree i pass fully dressed in out-of-season foliage.  

Its blazing glory of red, gold and orange leaves shout out, "It's fall y'all!"  And while we might wish it were true, we know it's not.  But we are assured in due time, a change of season will come and a welcomed, cool relief will surround us.

Are you experiencing a difficult season now?  Do you need a reprieve? Is sweat pouring from your head? Do you long for a new beginning?  Are you in an unbearable situation? Are you anxious for a change?  

Hear this Good News.  God sees and knows all about our circumstances.  We might be ready for a change this instant, but God may be saying, "It's not time for this season to be over. Trust Me." 

Father, increase my patience. May i trust Your perfect timing for me in everything. Only You know how long i need to be in my current season --- For there is a purpose in all things.  

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.

we are loved and chosen by God,
may we live like we believe it!
