New Seasons

I am ready for change.

This week marks the beginning of a change of seasons in more ways than one.  The weather is changing and Fall is in the air.  I am starting a new job and a new chapter in my time with Cohen.  Curtis and I have made some personal changes that we hope are going to reap fruitful results.  Things are changing!  Hopefully for the better.

We are coming out of a season that has been hard for our family.  But today I was reminded that even when we have been struck down, it is the Lord who raises us up and gives us new seasons of hope and refreshing.

Hosea 6 says:

“Come, let us return to the LORD; for he has torn us, that he may heal us;
he has struck us down, and he will bind us up.
After two days he will revive us; on the third day he will raise us up, that we may live before him.
Let us know; let us press on to know the LORD; his going out is sure as the dawn;
he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth.”

Even when we don’t understand it, He give purpose to our suffering.  He heals where we are torn and he binds up where we are broken.  I want to press on to know that God.  I want to know the God who offers beauty for my ashes in an intimate way because I need that exchange!

The beginning of October always sort of marks the end of a year to me…like time is winding down on this particular calendar year.  This year has been hard.  But for the first time in a long time, I feel hopeful that things are changing for the better, and that I can dance in the showers of the Lord’s coming.
