Can You Believe Autumn is Upon Us?
As the leaves begin to change and the air grows crisp, and the days are getting shorter it’s hard not to marvel at the beauty of autumn. The vibrant colors of red, orange, and yellow create a picturesque scene that is both breathtaking and awe-inspiring. It’s a time of year that reminds us of the beauty that can be found in change.
Just as the leaves change colors and fall to the ground, we too experience changes in our lives. Sometimes these changes can be difficult, but we can find comfort in knowing that we are not alone. Jesus walks with us through every season of life, offering us strength, courage, and hope.
As we settle into the cozy days of autumn, we can look forward to the warmth of a crackling fire, snuggling in with a good book, hot drinks like tea, coffee, hot chocolate and for those of you who like it— Pumpkin spice everything, and the comfort of snuggly blankets and fuzzy socks. It’s a time to slow down, reflect, and appreciate all that we have. We have so much to be grateful for, and autumn reminds us of this truth.
Jesus & Autumn
Jesus understands the challenges of change. He knows that it can be difficult to let go of the past and embrace the future. But He also knows that change is a part of life. And He is always with us, walking with us through every season.
In the Bible, we see many examples of Jesus using the changing seasons to teach us about His love and faithfulness. For example, in the book of Matthew, Jesus compares Himself to the lilies of the field, which “neither toil nor spin.” He tells us that we should not worry about our daily needs, because God will provide for us.
Comforting Bible verses to reflect on this Autumn
— Isaiah 40:6-8: “The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever.”
— Psalm 19:14: “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork.”
— James 1:17: “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change.”
— Romans 15:13: “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.”
— Hebrews 12:1-2: “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.”
These verses can help us to see autumn as a time of beauty, hope, and new beginnings. They can also remind us of God’s faithfulness and love, which are constant throughout the changing seasons.
Let’s embrace this season with open arms. Let’s allow the beauty of autumn to fill our souls with joy and gratitude. And let’s remember that no matter what changes may come our way, Jesus is always with us, guiding us and offering us peace. Autumn is a time for reflection and gratitude. It’s a time to slow down and enjoy the simple things in life. It’s a time to spend time with loved ones and create memories that will last a lifetime.
