One of the signs that summer is over and a different season has started is the sight of school buses on the roads and school children making their way to class again. While there is a bit of sadness that comes with the close of vacation time, there is also a sense of excitement and anticipation.
As we get ready for a new school year, and the new schedules and activities that start fresh each September, let me encourage you to make sure you are prioritizing your spiritual life and needs. The only way to experience the fulness of God’s blessings in any area of life is to put Him first. This certainly includes new seasons of life.
Here are a few good reminders for all of us as we exit summertime and head into fall:
Design time into your daily schedule for God.
Make church attendance a high priority. Make the big decision that you and your family will be in church each weekend for worship and the study of God’s Word.
Maintain family times. Establish a family meal together each evening, if at all possible. Commit to a brief family devotional time before going to bed. This continuity will do wonders for your communication and connection with one another.
Have faith! Believe that this season is going to be a good season. Believe that God has some wonderful things He is going to teach you, show you and do for you. Anticipate with great excitement a new season of His blessings and favor.
Also, don’t miss this coming weekend at Church of the Redeemer. We have planned a special weekend to help us all get ready for this new season. I am excited about what God is going to do!
