IMG_0121As we come to the end of the week, my last two posts are a two-part series written by  Pastor Trent Morgan.  This week I have been sharing the first 7 days of a 21 day devotional made available at Grace Community Church.  It was produced by Pastor Charissa Morgan and written by her and other co-laborers in her family in Christ. She shares that it is commonly thought to take 21 days to make or break a habit.  She is believing that this devotional will be the launching pad God uses in individual lives to catapult each one into a deeper, more meaningful relationship with our Savior, Jesus Christ.

I pray you will enjoy the last two day’s insight from our Pastor.  If you are interested is seeing the remaining days of our 21 Day Devotional, you can pick up a copy at the church, or you can visit Grace Community Church Facebook page each day for the next two weeks where they will be posted following this link:  https://www.facebook.com/GraceCommunitySalem/

Day 6: Changing Your Season – Part 1

By Pastor Trent Morgan

“To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.”  Ecclesiastes 3:1 

The next eight verses continue on and say there is a time to be born, a time to plant, a time to heal, a time to build up, a time to laugh, a time to dance. A time to keep, a time to lose, a time to gather and a time to cast away…and so on. To everything there is a cycle. Some of which we have no control. Every October the leaves start to change color and the evenings become brisk. But by April, the flowers are budding again and the days are warming. It’s a pattern that since the creation of the world has kept in sync with itself. These patterns of the earth are uncontrollable by mankind. There is no machine that man could ever build that can stop the cycle of seasons that God created in the fabric of our world. Though this scripture references many of those natural seasons, it also speaks of life’s seasons. Today you may feel like you’re in the winter season. You’ve become dull to the feeling of God’s presence. You haven’t been able to find your drive to serve and love the way you feel you need to. You’re stuck between October and April with snow blowing through the front door of your life. But today, I want you to be encouraged! To everything there is a season and seasons don’t last forever! David said in Psalm 30:5b, “weeping (sorrow) may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” What you’re facing today doesn’t have to last forever! In fact, in tomorrow’s devotion you’ll discover just how you can see an accelerated change of seasons in your life!
