A lot happens at this time of year. Schools have resumed. Sports have kicked off for the season. Vacations have come to a close.
Pumpkin everything is available everywhere. The air is crisper and clearer. The leaves are beginning the process of changing and dropping. Changes are on the horizon.
For someone who does not like change, I am remarkably fond of this season of change. I think it is because of the calming consistency I find at this time of year. Indeed, it is by far the busiest time of year for teachers, but there is a sameness that helps me focus and complete the tasks before me.
I am reminded that I serve a God who is consistent and steadfast amid all the changes. That truth is a source of strength and the power behind the mission and purpose I seek to fulfill.
Psalm 102:25-27 (ESV)
Of old you laid the foundation of the earth, and the heavens are the work of your hands. They will perish, but you will remain; they will all wear out like a garment.
You will change them like a robe, and they will pass away, but you are the same, and your years have no end.
Have a Blessed Fall Y’all!
