For a Season

I love this time of year.  
Fall never seems to stay long enough.

But like three favorite words in Scripture, it’s only here “for a season.”

“For a season.”
That’s how long the Bible promises our trials and testings will last. (1 Peter 1:6)

They have a beginning. 
They have an end. 
They serve their purpose. 
And they’re always headed for change.

Just like we can’t make Fall stay longer or Summer come too soon, 
our various trials have their appointed times.

But one more promise is also our hope:
He makes all things “beautiful in HIS time.” (Ecclesiastes 3:11 KJV)
