This is my command—be strong and courageous! Do not be afraid or discouraged. For the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.
–Joshua 1:9 NLT
Seasons bring change. One change is Daylight Savings Time (unless you live in Hawaii or Arizona). In the spring, the clock moves forward one hour and in the fall, they are turned back one hour. Daylight becomes shorter or longer according to the season and the time change.
There are also seasons and changes in your life. At times, you take great strides in your Christian walk. Other times you resort to old habits, which set you back. You have good and bad days. You realize life is a struggle, but it also is surrounded by mercy and grace. The important thing is to seek the Lord and trust Him. The Christian life is not peaceful and happy all the time. Life is hard—but is even harder without God.
A sure way of overcoming the unavoidable changes in life is to start your day spending time with the Lord. This may sound difficult, but when you seek Him before your day even begins, you are preparing yourself for whatever the day may hold. Remember, even Jesus rose early to pray. Seasons change, but He doesn’t. There is nothing like feeling His love to get you through each day.
- Be thankful that you can go to the Father and acknowledge your need for Him.
- Seek God and trust in His power—no matter what your season of life.
