Just as God planned seasons in nature, He planned seasons in life as well. Life has its spring time, when we begin new things and look excitedly toward the future. Summer comes and we work diligently in the heat of the day at all that God has assigned to us. With autumn comes to fruition of things begun in an earlier time in our lives. Winter brings an end to a particular period in our lives. Sometimes winter brings hardship, but we remain hopeful, for every spring is just around the corner! By God’s grace, we will enjoy seasons of harvesting and 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 as it is with the seasons of nature, the seasons in our lives work together to bring about God’s perfect will for each one of us.
