Good morning to all, as we prepare to head into the fall season - what is your heart longing for? As for me I am always hoping to capture the Big Buck to harvest which most years turns into a doe, but we hunt for food and not for trophies. As a Dad I enjoy watching my daughter Jalee harvest her deer and not worry about getting one myself. What season does God have you in your lives.
To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1
A wise Pastor once told me that we will have those times (seasons ) when we may feel like God is nowhere to be found. It may seem as though he has forgotten us and our troubles in life. In those times that we feel we do not hear the voice of God do we still listen, or do we move on? Recently I had gone through such a time and I talked to God about what I was feeling at the time. Not long after that I had a message from a young man in Florida who told me that God wanted me to come back to my first love? WOW talk about timing, and a wakeup call to deepen my heart into the things of God.
The eyes of all look expectantly to YOU, And You give them their food in due season.
A wise pastor also told me that God is always near and to expect him to move in our lives when we are seeking him through all that we go through. Fall is also the time for harvest here in Kansas, many farmers are relying on good harvest to carry them through the winter.
Then I will give you rain in its season, the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. Leviticus 26:4
Whatever season you may be in remember that God is with you and loves all of us.
The counsel of the Lord stands forever, The plans of His heart to all generations.
Have an amazing day!
