What season is it for you? Is it summer, where you have planted your seeds and they have taken root and are growing. It is a time of joy and weeding, and waiting for things to come to fruition.
Are you in Autumn, the time of harvest, when you reap what you have sown and hopefully it is a sweet and plentiful harvest.
Are you in Springtime? The season when you watch for frost yet bide your time to prepare your ground and plant your seed.
Or are you in Winter? The season when the ground is cold and lifeless, and you hope that the harvest from the fall will keep you going.
Each of us is in a different season, and we help sustain and fortify each other as we go through our own times of winter. Our human society has seasons as well. The 80's were summer, when very little weeding was done and the harvest in the 90's and early 2000's provided great technological windfalls, but left us culturally and morally bereft. We are now in a cultural winter, where we hope for spring and await the next awakening.
Heavenly Father, bring us an awakening of you and the Holy Spirit. Let us breathe you in and taste your goodness. May all see and hear the miracles that you perform. May all come to you and seek out a relationship with you. May the world know peace. In Jesus' mighty name, Amen.
