Gratitude Amidst Change... Day 15

GOD smelled the sweet fragrance and thought to himself, “I’ll never again curse the ground because of people. I know they have this bent toward evil from an early age, but I’ll never again kill off everything living as I’ve just done. For as long as Earth lasts, planting and harvest, cold and heat, Summer and winter, day and night will never stop.”Genesis 8:21-22 MSG

Today’s Gratitude Challenge...

Seasons are a common grace for this world. A glimpse of the heart of God who makes all things new. We know that delays are always God’s kindness toward us. That growth comes from the death of a seed. That it takes trees years and years to grow. That a set of leaves falling off every year allows for hope to show up in a fresh way. Notice the season you’re in. Feel the ache of change? The painfully slow waiting? Praise God that He is preparing you to experience His mercies in a new and fresh way. Praise God that He’s following through with the promise He made to himself to allow seasons to complete a great work in you. Take a moment today to stop and pause and PRAISE GOD for something in your life that is in a season of change. Even if it’s painful, thank God for the change you are experiencing. Tell someone about it!
