It is finally fall.
Autumn has always been one of my favorite seasons of the year.
It is a season of change, a season of transition, a season of renewal. It’s also a season filled with hustle and bustle.
It is an exciting time but in the midst of all of our activities, it’s important to stay focused on God and make the most of every precious moment.
The Season To Set Godly Priorities
Teach us to number our days, that we may gain a heart of wisdom. – Psalm 90:12
We all have busy schedules, but even on our most hectic days, just as we make time to feed our bodies, it’s also important to nourish our souls.
Take time to listen for the still, quiet voice of God to see where He is leading. Set your priorities in accordance with God’s Word.
The Season To Make Every Moment Count
There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens. – Ecclesiastes 3:1
As our children go back to school and our families adjust to their new fall routines, it’s more important than ever to ensure that our families spend quality time with God and with each other.
Set aside time each day to pray for each member of your family. Pray for any individual needs and specific concerns they have.
Make the most of every moment.
As you shop with your kids or help them with their homework, invite them to share any concerns that are on their minds. Let them know you always have time for them. Use your time wisely.
Make time for fun!
On the weekends, look for relaxing, wholesome activities that the entire family can enjoy. Be sure to include seasonal activities that remind your family of the beautiful world that God created and the countless ways that God blesses us each and every day!
Autumn Reminds Us of the Promise of Glory
But I have written very boldly to you on some points so as to remind you again, because of the grace that was given me from God, (Romans 15:15)
As a parent, we all go through different ages with our children. Some are exciting and some are confusing. But hang in there as your child goes through different stages of growth.
The golden rule of parenting is to continuously show your children the kind of individual you want them to be.
Let us embrace this season and fill our hearts with perseverance and understanding, with the spiritual wisdom needed not only to make it through the seasons, but to appreciate them as gifts from God.
