There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven. Ecclesiastes 3:1
Things can change in a hurry. On Labor Day, the skinny white-trunked aspen trees were very green due to a long wet summer season. Three days later, they were tinged with yellow. In less than a week, they were solid gold. What a majestic sight!
Maybe you, or someone you know, is in a not-so-great place, and can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. It seems to go on forever, like it’s never going to change.
Change it will, though. Everything has a season. Nothing is forever, except the love of God. The bible tells us, in the book of Psalms, the love of the Lord endures forever.
While waiting for things to change, reading the Psalms can give us comfort and assuredness that there is a God who loves us and does have a good plan for our lives.
Never give up! It’s said that it’s always darkest just before dawn. Hang in, and hold on to the Lord. We may get in a rush. But when everything is ready, all things will come together and there will be change, likely in a hurry.
