The Keeper of the Seasons

By: Carole Lynne Haines

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13 NASB)

And He will be the stability of your times, A wealth of salvation, wisdom and knowledge; The fear of the Lord is his treasure. (Isaiah 33:6 NASB)

Woke up this morning thinking of a crossroads.
out in the middle of nowhere
no trees, no grass
just two roads intersecting.
And on the corner of this crossroads
stood a house all alone.
It had stood alone for a very long time,
worn with age and storms.
Yet the home’s foundation and walls stood firm.
Just some tender loving care is all she needs.
A coat of paint perhaps and
maybe some new windows with shutters
and a brand-new door, all in sunflower yellow.
Perhaps a garden, freshly planted,
with every color imaginable,
pinks, blues, purples, yellows, reds;
but especially orange.
Most important of all, a family inside,
sitting by the fireside with a game and a bowl of popcorn.
Lots of laughter filling the air.
My life felt has a lot like this old home at times.
Perhaps you’ve felt it too; reeling,
from the remnants of a long Winter’s season.
Short days and long, lonely nights wearing you down.
We turn to our Mighty God in prayer. Praying for us, for you and me.
Father God, You are the God who makes all things new.
You bring the lonely into families.
You wash away all our sins and regrets.
This day, we pray for a new season, renew us and make us whole.
Let us see the power of Your great love and kindness;
cleansing, restoring, keeping us, close to Your heart.
We are all yearning for a new season.
Give us new doors and windows this Spring, please Father.
and perhaps a fresh coat of paint.
Bring in showers of Your grace, to cleanse and restore us.
draw us ever closer to Yourself.
We may not know what each new season holds,
but we know You, the Keeper of the Seasons.
We yearn to rest in the arms of the One
who holds every Season of our lives.
You alone are the stability of our times, O King Jesus.
Because of who You are, we declare boldly our new season
Happy Spring, Dearest God
Happy Spring to us all

“While the earth remains, Seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat,
and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.”
(Genesis 8:22 NASB)
