Recently a friend of mine used this line, “Summer is yawning.” I like that line. Already I too see “summer yawning,’ and fall is beginning to wake up. The changing of seasons is common not only in the natural but also in the spiritual. In all of our lives,
God brings new seasons; and with new seasons comes fresh anointing for the task ahead. Maybe God is bringing you into a new season-new opportunities to reach the harvest. I encourage you go into your new season with Paul’s promise, “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength,” Phil 4:13. You can through Christ! Others may not be in a new season; that’s o.k. I have found that in the everyday, even the mundane of life, God does great things. It was an ordinary day for Moses when God appeared to him through a burning bush. I encourage you to remain faithful. In the mundane, the ordinary, you too can “Do all things through Christ who gives you strength.”
This fall also gives us several opportunities to fellowship and see one another. Our boy’s and girl’s ministries will be having weekend getaways September 15-16. Please make sure your boys and girls in your respective churches take advantage of this time of fellowship. Our Ministers’ and Spouses’ Retreat will be in Billings, Montana, October 19-21. Our Holiday Gathering will be that Friday night, October 20, in Billings as well. I look forward to seeing you in Billings.
May God give you and your family an abundant harvest season!
