The Burning Bush!
On a bit lighter note!
I love this time of the year. It has remained in the 60's & 70's for quite some time now with a cold day here and there thrown in for good measure. It has been absolutely beautiful, the bush in my yard is but a small proof of what the trees and scrub have looked like up and down the valley and along the river. A light breeze once in awhile to fall some more leaves and soon those will be gone and it will be time for winter.
Winter is the only season that I don't really appreciate and yet I am reminded of the beginning of creation. "Then God said "let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years" Genesis 1:14
God created the seasons to come and to go and so I also remember that after the flood the Lord said in His heart:
"While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
Cold and heat,
Winter and summer,
And day and night
Shall not cease" Genesis 8:22
The seasons are a continual reminder to me that the earth remains and the Lord God will never again destroy all living things as He did in the flood. It is a reminder to me that He has set all the boundaries of the earth and He has made summer and winter. (Psalm 74:17)
Every day can be like a discovery, a discovery of the faithfulness of God if we have eyes to see the faithfulness. As a believer I have been given those eyes to see and the ears to hear but so often I can get bogged down in the trials of life and forget, the seasons help me to remember! Thank you Lord!
Grace and Peace!
