September 26

The shift of the light during the fall, brings a perfect glow, especially during the mornings and in the evenings. It filters through the trees and wakes up the day, and then brings it to a close. The shadows shift so that even in Florida, though the heat is oppressive, you can still tell that fall has begun. It may only be a subtle change, but if fall is your season, then any change will do. Just as the earth has seasons, our lives have seasons. As you enter a new season, your view changes, and what was once important, now seems trivial. For instance, when you accepted Jesus as your Savior, you entered a new season. The drinking and rebel rousing become a thing of the past and should no longer bring you pleasure. Within your life in Christ there are also seasons. You begin as a baby and grow to maturity by feeding on God's word. The more mature in Christ you become, the sooner the folly of your youth will fade, and you will set your sight on the good of the future and a more pleasing life following the precepts of God. 

"So Jesus said to them, “The light is among you for a little while longer. Walk while you have the light, lest darkness overtake you. The one who walks in the darkness does not know where he is going."  John 12:35
