He IS So Good

My children, all giggles, run off to the yard with plastic bags in hand. And then before I know it they return, bags full with nuts and leaves and all kinds of things that represent fall.

Things broken, fallen and faded from their once vibrant, colorful life.

It reminds me how quickly “things” change around here. Here in this place. I wonder if He meant for the seasons to do that… to remind us that nothing here is permanent?

And, how He is the only thing that stands completely unmoved, untouched and unchanged in every way.

The only One we can really trust.

For. Everything.

Yet, despite knowing this truth well, we still so often cling to “things” that will simply wither and fade away.

We do this… and we meet up with such disappointment. Act so surprised. When He’s clearly told us just how it will go.

And, He responds… always in the same way… with sweet reminders in such patience. With such comfort. With such Love.

He is so good.

I’m praying that as we observe the withering and fading away of fall… that we cling a little less to the “things” in this life and a lot more to the King of our future.

Wow I have never thought of it that way…that maybe the seasons remind us that nothing is permanent. That could be a scary thing, but it’s also an amazing thing. It gives me hope right now because I’m being treated for Lyme Disease right now and it gives me peace to think that this is not permanent. However, whether the change of season is good or bad, we should always cling to God because like you said, He is unchanging. Thanks for sharing! Be blessed 🙂
