September 27th, 2019 – This week Autumn officially began and the next few weeks are some of my favorite days of the year. The foliage will transform into a canopy of yellows, oranges and reds that are so vibrant and alive that they can’t be replicated by human hands. A great reminder that our Creator God is an artist who loves to shower us with blessings. He has directed nature & science to release scents and sights to display the beautiful celebration of life that we find on a perfect Autumn day.
God wants to use all things for the good of those who love Him. The Apostle Paul wrote in his letter to the Romans (8:28) “And we know [with great confidence] that God [who is deeply concerned about us] causes all things to work together [as a plan] for good for those who love God, to those who are called according to His plan and purpose.” This does NOT mean God causes all of the bad things, sickness, disasters. etc, that happen in our lives. BUT it does mean that for those who love & trust Him, God will use those hard things to grow, transform and prosper us to the fulfillment of our purpose. Then our lives will be seen by all as a beautiful celebration of life as we are completed by the Great Artist. God showers blessings on and through us for His Glory. Enjoy the show!
