Beautiful Works

To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them Beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the Lord, that might be glorified. Isaiah 61:3

It was expected to have a lot of rain coming through the area. With this being the last month for hurricane season some have been fortunate. Whereas, for some their experience brought caution to others. Although we are not certain what may come our way, but one thing to remember is we are not alone.

With this time of year the change in seasons brings us to a shift in time, the grounds covered with leaves, and countdown to the end of the hurricane season. Moreover, this reminds us we are getting closer to the end of another year. So get ready to pull out your winter gear if you have not done so. For some of us it is the most wonderful time of the year.

The coolness in the air brings the whistling in the trees. It brings to view the variations of trees that surround us.  From the ground it sprouts to form unique shades of beauty. Strong and enduring to withstand the wind and rain is a picturesque work that has risen before us.

No matter what the circumstance the power of our Lord God is at work on His timing. Seasons come and go but just like the tree He is strong and mighty. The winds may blow and the waters may rise around us but He has not forgotten us. Just like the storms of life we never know what we may face, but be encouraged to know that if He brought us to it He’ll bring us through it. Going through our seasonal experiences we will go through periods of  high and low temperatures, storms, gusty winds and high waters but knowing the best is yet to come at the end. To God be the Glory.
