Turning the page on matters and to what matters more- God!
I was feeling particularly relieved today. I had finished some chores around the house that were taking more peace from me than I realized. I feel so much better now. And now when I thought that it was safe to feel relieved, Christmas and Thankgiving is around the corner...
I happen to like the havoc of this time of the season or play on words, the season of havoc, I perhaps happen to like. The fact of the matter is that we are broke. But the good news is that we're broken. And that's our treasure.
We have a whole new batch of faith in our heart to meditate upon. I sought this moment so much. It's been a while since I had a break. God wants to meditate upon Christmas and Thanksgiving.
God said through John the Baptist that no one can receive anything unless it is granted from heaven. And I think we are in the pinnacle of the year, when the hot weather will begin to wind down.
God made each season for every purpose and purpose for every season. In God glorious wisdom, each season last just enough to fulfill its purpose. The harvest time of the year, a time of browning of leaves and cool breezes in the evening.
But Thanksgiving start it off and we have through a lot and have a lots to be thankful for, perhaps even the tense times that come along. And somewhere along the thanks-giving we can forgive those who have offended us.
If we can turn out a good harvest of forgiving some if not many, then we have had a good year and we can really look forward to ending the year with a sense of real accomplishment. I hope your year is a year of forgiving, just as God has forgiven us in Christ. Ephesians 4:32.
