I am really looking forward to Fall. I think it is my favorite time of year. The weather turns cooler which is such a relief from the extreme Texas heat. Leggings start to make their way out of storage. Sweaters come out of the closets. And we may even have the windows open letting in a cool breeze. We can finally begin to decorate for the holiday season. Christmas is just a few short months away. Fall has so many wonderful colors. I love seeing the oranges and different shades of greens. How can we not love Fall?
As I think of all these changes I am reminded of how God brings about change in our lives. He is so merciful to not leave us in our sin. He moves us toward a closer relationship with Him by helping us become more and more Christlike. Our old selves fade away as we take on Christ’s character of forgiveness and mercy. We learn to use self control instead of being quick to anger. Our tongues are tamed as we yield to the Holy Spirit.
Today let’s allow His gentle guidance to work changes in us that will make us more like Him. “For God knew his people in advance, and he chose them to become like his Son, so that his Son would be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters.”
Romans 8:29 NLT2 Corinthians
