Seasons Change

“But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.” – Psalm 52:8

“Though the seasons change, your love remains.”  As the worship band repeated this refrain, God used these words to remind me how He had loved us from one season to the next.   Not just in the good times, but through some really difficult seasons.  Through the fall… when our hopes and dreams fell like leaves from the trees, and were blown away by the wind.  His love remained.  Through the winter…when prayers seemed to go unanswered, and the world felt cold and desolate.  His love remained.  In the spring…when the snow melted and beauty sprang from the ground.  His love remained.  In the summer…when change was inevitable, and we were filled with apprehension.  His love remained.

Slowly, these truths are penetrating my heart…the dreams that died and were blown away by the wind, were never God’s dreams for us.  The time of seemingly unanswered prayers taught us to patiently rest in Him.  Although we couldn’t see what God was doing, He was working behind the scenes. The blessings that bloomed in the spring, were planted by Him even before the cold winter began.  The plans He has for us, although sometimes scary and difficult, are always good. Good plans, wrapped in His love.  His love remains.

When you find yourself in a difficult season, trust His love.  When you can’t see what He is doing, trust that He is at work.  For your good, and His glory.  In every season, know that He loves you…He sees you…and, He has a plan for you.  His love remains.

“Lord, help us to trust in your unfailing love in all good times and hard times.  You are always at work behind the scenes. You promise never to leave us or forsake us.”

 

For His Glory,
