AS WE look around the countryside at this time of year we see all the magnificent colours of autumn with the leaves changing and the various spectacular skies.
The hibernating animals are busy building up their stocks of food for the winter and making sure that they are ready for the long sleep.
Many gardeners are busy ‘putting their gardens to bed’ for the winter and no doubt preparing seeds for sowing in the spring.
The farmers have cultivated the land and have sown the winter seeds ready for the harvest next year.
So many people dread the coming winter with all the dark days and freezing weather.
But we have to realize that all the seasons are there for a particular purpose and are necessary in order for our food supply to continue each year.
Nature, in all its magnificence, is there for our benefit, whether it is the summer sun or the winter snow enabling the fruit to grow.
In our lives there are the seasons of good things and seasons when things do not seem to go so well.
God has set the natural seasons in place for a reason so that we can enjoy the harvests of fruit, vegetables and grain.
It is the same with our lives and whether we are going through a ‘winter’ patch or ‘summer’ blessings He wants to be involved with us to help us in every situation.
Lift up a prayer to Him now to ask for His help, through Jesus Christ, to bless your life.
