We're nearing the midpoint of November - already! My favorite months of the year seem to whiz by. I count the minutes until August is over and then I kick it into high-gear when September dawns. The colors. The temperatures. The sights. The smells. The tastes. The holidays.
I, Sarah, do solemnly swear that Fall is my favorite season of the year...
Our family has maximized fun and memories and experiences together this Fall. We've played and traveled and baked and created and enjoyed. And it's been great!
But, in light of all the happy moments my family has enjoyed, I've watched special friends and family walk through cloudy, windy, and rainy days these past couple of months. For them, this Fall hasn't brought laughter and giddy expectation. Instead, it's brought tears and weariness and loneliness.
Thank you Jesus that He alone is the answer to every need and every hurt and every longing. He is the answer every time for every person in every situation.
Jesus is enough. He is the answer every time for every person in every situation.
Psalm 34: 1-10
I will extol the Lord at all times; his praise will always be on my lips.
My soul will boast in the Lord; let the afflicted hear and rejoice.
Glorify the Lord with me; let us exalt his name together.
I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears.
Those who look to him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.
This poor man called, and the Lord heard him; he saved him out of all his troubles.
The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them.
Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Fear the Lord, you his saints, and those who fear him lack nothing.
The lions may grow weak and hungry, but those who seek the Lord lack no good thing.
