Seasons Change (H)
Christ’s call for us to endure, hope and love

There is a time and a season for every activity on earth.  Solomon says it like this ‘There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens.’  Our lives also cycle through seasons.  Those seasons may not be as common as winter, summer, spring, and fall because each of us are so unique. Yet there are common experiences in the lives of men and women that span across cultures, status, geography, and even time.  Scripture speaks into these experiences of human life and this devotional will explore some of what God has to say to us about our life Seasons.
