“Why are you discouraged, my soul?
Why are you so restless?
Put your hope in God, because I will still praise him.
He is my savior and my God.”
Psalm 42:5 God’s Word to the Nations
In the fall we move from life to death; in the spring from death to life, and each of these transitory seasons produces a certain amount of anticipation.
In the spring we anticipate the light of long summer evenings, campfires and life. In the fall we anticipate the darkness of long winter nights, freezing temperatures and death.
Whether the season is transitioning from summer to winter or winter to summer, there is the gift of beauty in the transition. The varied colors of fall leaves and the diverse hues of spring flowers remind us that in the difficulty of transition God is at work painting the canvas of our lives.
Some of you are in a season of transition; transition from joy to sorrow or sorrow to joy; from contentment to fear or fear to contentment; from life to death or death to life.
May you experience in your transition the grace of the Artist who paints your life’s canvas.
By the way, there are more colors on God’s palette than you will ever know.
