Walking out of my house this morning I am delighted by the cool crisp air, the leaves changing colors. I love fall, the shorter days, and pumpkin pie! Soon we will all be busy with Harvest Festivals, Thanksgiving and then preparing for Christmas.
Psalm 118:24 says, “This is day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.” I rejoice each day that God has given me all this beauty to enjoy, and we all need to take a moment sit back and take in His wonderful creation. In your morning devotions take time to thank and praise Him for all he gives us daily.
I am also reminded that I am entering the Fall season of my life. Not everything that comes with that is enjoyable, like aches and pains, becoming more forgetful, not having the energy I once had. Even looking into the mirror is a reminder of just how seasoned I am! However, I enjoy the blessing of life-long friendships, amazing grandchildren, some acquired wisdom, and the comfort of knowing that when my life on earth is over, I will have a mansion in paradise with our Lord. We remember that God sent His one and only Son to suffer and die on the cross, taking on the burden of our sins, so that we may inherit eternal life. I thank God for the free gift of salvation and the promise of everlasting life to all who believe. We need to take time to share this message with everyone we meet, remembering there are people who still need to hear the good news of salvation.
“LORD, You have been our dwelling place in all generations. Before the mountains were brought forth, or ever You had formed the earth and the world, from everlasting to everlasting, You are God” Psalm 90:1-2
Prayer: Heavenly Father, thank you for the daily reminders of all You have done for me, from the beauty of all the seasons of the year, to the provision for me for all of eternity through faith in Your beloved Son, my Savior, Jesus. Please keep me mindful of Christ’s command to go and tell others of what He has done to provide them with a hope and future through belief in Him. I humbly ask You to show me ways to boldly share the greatest love the world has ever known — Your love shown through the sacrifice of your only Son, Jesus. In Christ’s holy and precious name. Amen. (Prayer taken from LWML Mustard Seed Devotion Harvest Time – Ready! Set! Go!)
Enjoy this beautiful season,
LWML CNH District President
