Blessings of Changing Seasons

Pastor Chris Ryan   -  

Summer is officially over, but that is not entirely a bad thing! It means that autumn is here. There are quite a few things that I enjoy about the fall season. I love the changing colors of the leaves, football, the cooler  weather, caramel apples, campfires, and football. Sure, there are some things I will miss about summer, but what helps me enjoy autumn all the more is my focus on all of the positive things that come with the changing of the season.

There is actually an incredible amount of power when it comes to positive thinking. That is in part, is why God’s Word says, “Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy — think about such things.” (Philippians 4:8)

Sure, your life is almost certainly not perfect, but God doesn’t want us to put our focus there. Focusing on such
things can derail your day and make you less useful as you serve Jesus. Rather, focus on the many blessings that God has undoubtedly placed in your life. Then, praise Him for such things!

May you count your many blessings this autumn,
Pastor Ryan
