Message for October 10, 2021 from Pastor Shirley

The last few weeks we have sensed fall in the air.  Morning’s are cooler, leaves are beginning to fall from the trees and the grass is beginning to turn brown.  Following the fall season is the winter season which is cold, dark and dreary, then the spring season is a time of birth as things begin to bloom, and during the summer season there is sunshine and warm weather.  Every season brings the path to birthing the next season. 
      We find in the Bible that our lives go through seasons as well. The Bible tells us in Ecclesiastes 3:1 “For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven.  time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh,  a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; a time to tear, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace”.  This Scripture is a reminder of the seasons and the changes that we go through in our lives. All of them are necessary for us to learn, grow and mature as spiritual beings.  Each season brings the path to birthing the next season. 
      Our faithful God guides our steps from one season to the next.  Yes He sees what is coming ahead for us and has already provided what we need to get through. God is  always present and always leading us through each season.      If you are in a season of heartache-His healing presence is there with you- if you are going through a season of sickness His healing presence is there-that is the key going through with His presence. Just as seasons in the natural change so do the seasons of our lives.  Be encouraged with this Scripture from Hebrews 13:5 For He God Himself has said, I will not in any way fail you nor give you up nor leave you without support. I will not, I will not, I will not in any degree leave you helpless nor forsake nor let you down (relax My hold on you)! Assuredly not!
