Life Happens and Seasons Change

Hello there!

It's been a while since I've really been here...but you know, life happens. And lately, so much life has been happening that I haven't had time to write about it, or about anything else. But I promise that I'm back, and I'll be sticking around!

Part of the reason that I haven't been here in a bit is because I've felt a little disconnected from God. I mean, we still see each other, and we chat and stuff, but we haven't had time to really connect recently. This is probably because I've been alternating between being busy and being exhausted, even though Jesus has been like, "but I'm your rest. Come to me." I'm still learning what that really means, to rest in Jesus as I walk through life with Him.

Life has a way of keeping things rolling, and sometimes, instead of a gentle current going along, it feels more like you're in an avalanche and you don't know which way is up. Or at least I do. But even in these moments God reminds me of His sovereignty and His love, be it through a beautiful sunny morning, or a breathtaking view of trees along the river, or the beauty of the fall foliage.  Through my busyness, God still calls to me to stop and consider His wondrous works.

I'm reminded through these little moments that even as I am tumbling along through life, God's hand is still in all of it, especially as I watch the seasons change in the leaves and trees, and the seasons change in my own life.

Every year the trees instinctively know what to do, their lives set on a cycle that continues through each new generation. The leaves change, and fall off the trees, but they do not despair, for they know that this loss has a purpose and new life will bloom again. I take comfort in these trees, in their beauty, and in the knowledge that the trees' lives have been planned and mapped out by my Creator, and so has mine.

Seasons change, and they should.

Be blessed and shine through life!
