Fall, the season between summer and winter. A natural
process and period of time in which our world undergoes a
change and passes from one state, stage or form to another.
It’s a requirement. Life on earth was never meant to be
stagnant, but rather to develop, replenish and progress
forward. With the fall of every leaf, naturally and in season,
that’s exactly what’s happening.
Our world is structured much the same way. That is, all that
we include and that which we hold dear within our innermost
circle of life and living, will too have its seasons of transitions.
A continuing complex process of releasing, receiving, declines
and advancements throughout the course of life to develop,
grow and flourish spiritually and naturally. It’s a path not
always paved with personal satisfaction, clarity or easily
walked by anyone. Yet it’s a path that Christ also walked,
overcoming it all the way to the end, to give us a way back to
Him. He did it with His Word and by His Spirit. He went before
us to give us the same, to accompany, comfort and lead us
forward as we transition all along the path into the select
individuals He called and purposed us to be.
