OUR JOURNEY OF THE SEASONS

While thinking about the seasons,
I couldn’t help but think
How our life’s journey is similar
to the different seasons God created.

Sometimes, our walk with the Lord                             970483_10201101467879572_1545651585_n
  is like the springtime.
We see things in a new way
  and have so much hope.
We are like the budding flowers,
  emerging with renewed energy in   full bloom.

  is like the good ole summertime.
We rest peacefully knowing He is
  in control of our lives.
We enjoy the beauty of each day
  and live life to the fullest.

At times, our walk with the Lord
  is like the fall time.fall trees
We see all the beautiful colors that
  surround us,
Yet at the same time, we may grow
  tired and weary,
Just as nature begins to slow down
  and hibernate.

  is like the wintertime–
  kind of quiet and barren
  maybe even lonely.
The winter can be a time to grow
  within and reflect on our journey.

In each season of our journey,
there are good days and bad days–
Just like in the seasons, there are
cloudy days, stormy days,
and bright sunny days.

Each of the seasons has its own beauty
and “specialness”
Just like the seasons
that God’s children experience.

But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.  He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields is fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither.  Whatever he does prospers.   –Psalm 1:2-3

See!  The winter is past; the rains are over and gone.  Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me. –Song of Songs 2:11-13

  1. Yes! This is so true! One thought that encourages me that even through the greatest storms in life the “Son” is still there we just can’t “see” Him but we need to have faith and believe that He is there ready to carry us through.

  2. A beautiful reflection my friend and so well written. Spring is an incredible season in Minnesota when winter FINALLY comes to an end and green starts to appear everywhere. I was actually thinking about spring and new life as I was doing some planting this week out in the yard. Thank you for this awesome piece my friend!
