There is a scripture in Daniel that says:
“He changes times and seasons; He deposes kings and raises up others. He gives wisdom to the wise and knowledge to the discerning.”
I was walking through my yard a couple of days ago looking at the beauty of the changing leaves marveling at Creator God! He creates such splendor in the kaleidoscope of color on the changing tree leaves.
But, He does so much more. He also creates beauty thats not as easily seen. There is beauty when the servant becomes a leader, when the student becomes teacher, when the weak becomes the strong. There is beauty in wisdom, knowledge and discernment. There is beauty in the changing seasons of our weather and even more beauty in the changing seasons of our lives.
His beauty defies time, place, age, social status or dress size. His beauty rests deep in the heart of the one that loves Him. This is a place where He calls us to find our identity in Him. If we will dwell in this place in season and out of season, He will reveal His beauty through us in time.
Do not fear the changing seasons…embrace them, and allow Him to paint His beauty on the leaves of your life
