Seasons and Cycles - Tuesday's Dose - 8th November 2016

And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years: (15) And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. - Genesis 1:14-15.

If I asked you to describe the winter part of a day, you would say nighttime.This is because everything slows down or stops in the nighttime like it does in winter.

If I asked you to describe the summer part of a day, you would say noonish. This is because noon is the fullest, most abundant part of our day.

If I asked you to describe the spring and fall of a day, you would name sunrise and sunset, respectively. This is because sunrise is an awakening just like Spring, and sunset is a quieting down, like Fall.

Seasons and days are cyclic. God planned this when he set the sun, moon, and stars in the sky and began spinning and rotating Earth.

God wants us to notice these cycles as well as cycles in our lives. He wants us to know that we have the next day or season to try again.

Every relationship, too, is a little or a lot cyclic. We feel closer to each other sometimes than we do other times. This is also true of our relationship with God. The seasons of the day and year remind us that, when we are in the winter months of a relationship, the renewal of springtime is just around the corner.

Prayer: Our Loving Father and Creator of Seasons, help us remember the cycles you created for us, especially when we are in despair. Every season holds a treasure. Help us find treasures in every cycle of life. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Tuesday and God Bless you.
