The colors and the verse here are so appropriate for my own life right now. As I have my own set of requests unto the Father, I simply (try my best to) wait still in gratitude, knowing His faithfulness and purposeful timing for His loved ones. I am confident in His plan for me, because I see the leaves changing colors without fail every year and I see seasons come and go like clockwork. That is design, and that is creation (Romans 1:20). I contribute nothing to these natural changes and us humans are quite powerless before the power of nature. And the very One who created and still sustains EVERYTHING around us makes a promise to His own. He has a plan.
Maybe you are rejoicing over answered prayers today. Maybe you've been praying and waiting for months or years for something near and dear to your heart. We all know disappointment and fear. But my sisters, if you are His and He is yours, unfulfilled desires are not meaningless. We have meaning—whether we know it or not currently—in everything we go through, and everything will work together for good (Romans 8:28). And "to everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." (Ecclesiastes 3:1) Rest assured and have peace, and let those requests simply fall into God's hands. Whether they are to be materialized or not, He is taking care of us. So our disappointment must be temporary, but our joy, everlasting!
"To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." Ecclesiastes 3:1
