As Seasons Change, Enjoy Where God Has You
I love the changing seasons. In central Florida, where I live, we don't experience seasonal weather changes as much as our friends in other parts of the country, but we do enjoy the change in focus and the cooler weather fall and winter bring. We may not have snow, but we can enjoy lighted snowmen on the porch during the holidays!

Years ago when I taught school, I would change the decor of my home as often as I changed the one in my classroom-out with one season and in with another. I'd get rid of the old so we could embrace the new. Being a creature of habit, I still like to change my surroundings about every three months.

The Bible says there is a season for everything in life (see Eccl. 3:1-8). If only we could embrace the seasons of our lives as willingly as we embrace the seasons of the year. It's been said that the only thing that is constant is change; but unfortunately that's what we tend to resist-especially if it means going outside our comfort zones.

God has planned the seasons of our lives with infinite wisdom. He has ordained each one, knowing exactly what fruit is to be harvested during each time frame. I believe that since His desire is to do us only good, He enjoys each season He plans for us (see Jer. 29:11). So why are we so prone to resist the season we're in?

It's as if we are never satisfied. When it's summer, we want fall. When it's winter, we want summer.

When we are single, we want to be married. read more

Why can't Christians get along?
For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe.
And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars;
When Solomon had finished building the temple of the Lord…the Lord appeared to him a second time.

Why Can?t Christians Get Along?
