1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NIV)
Rejoice always, 17 pray continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.
Just like the leaves on the trees change colors, our lives reflect change within us! We need the other seasons of life. Change happens and it can mold us by the word of God (Bible) with the words planted deep. Roots that won't go away and knowing that God's plan is unfolding in front of us. I heard it said, "As one door closes, another opens". God's plan continues and we can find beauty in the trees of November.
A month of beautiful colors and roots planted deep
Revelation 2:7 (NIV)
Whoever has ears, let them hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To the one who is victorious, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.
It is time to listen, to speak, to learn, to grow and to become stronger in God. Each day is a chance to change ourselves and help someone else along the way of life. Life is so much fun and we don't need to miss out on seeing our lives the way God does. Live in freedom of mind, soul and being!
Not only does trees change colors, but weather changes too
It is time to get warmer coats, rains gear and get ready for a change. We plan ahead and we watch a clock on a daily bases. God teaches us that change is good and bad. Ecclesiastes 3:1 ~ There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.
Let us learn to reflect the love of God, just like the beautiful tree with leaves that change colors. God's plan is to grow us daily and see the changes in our lives. He never leaves us or forgets where we are in life. Each day hold blessings and some trouble, but God is alway there. I'm so thankful to count blessings in daily living. If you are replaying the past, harsh words or anything negative, let it go! Don't allow the enemy of your soul to stop you from positive thinking and knowing who you are today. You are an overcomer and don't forget that. You can press into this new day of hope and rest in peace of mind. I care and I hope you can feel it through the words on this page.
My prayers continue for you, your family and friends.
