Happy first day of Autumn, all you delightful people.
It is time for seasonal pumpkin coffee, crisp air, crunchy leaves, jeans and sweater, boots and scarves, apple picking, pumpkin carving, football games, harvest time, hay rides and bonfires.
Those are just a few reasons why autumn happens to be my favorite season. To be honest, I could go on and on and on about why I adore this season, but I don’t want to bore you. I have a habit of going too deep into thought and spewing out words, but that is another topic for another time.
When I woke this morning and was thinking on all that I want to do this season, this one thought stood out to me.
This is a season of letting go and renewal.
And then my next thought was that every season is a time of letting go and renewal, but we have to choose to treat it as such and follow through with it. Continuing on in my thoughts and then into prayer this morning, I felt as if this is going to be a life changing season for me, but I have to choose to go after it with all I am. I know in my heart and in my mind that God is in the process of molding and shaping me to become who he wants me to be for his purpose. I am not sure what I am exactly supposed to let go of this season, but I know that in due time, it’ll be revealed to be. And then begins renewal.
Many times we say we believe that every day is a new day, because God’s mercies are new each day. But do we really believe that? Do we really choose to live that out?
So every morning when I leave my apartment to walk to work, I am going to embrace the brisk air and let it serve as a reminder to me that every day is a day of letting go and renewal.
I encourage you to do the same.
