Food For Thought: The beauty in the way God designed the four season is that, though each one is distinct, they all work together. Spring is a period of freshness and new life. Summer sees growth and productivity. Autumn is a time for harvesting the rewards of past labors. Winter is the season of dormancy and closure.

Just as God planned seasons in nature, He planned seasons in life. In God’s perfect design for our lives, He has planned for times of fruitfulness and activity. He will also build in times of quiet and rest. By God’s grace, we will enjoy seasons of harvesting the fruit of our faithfulness. By God’s grace, we will also overcome the cold winters of heartache and grief, for without winter there would be no spring. Just like the seasons of nature the season in our lives work together to bring about God’s perfect will for each one of us.
