Rise and Fall

As Summer slides into Fall, what feelings rise within you?  Has our atypical warm, dry weather tempted you to move to the always-sunny South?  Or do you secretly long for cooler, cloudier, drippier days that embrace you like a snug-fitting glove?

The Creator of seasons has a specific purpose for you as you “play the back nine” of this year.  What is His plan, the one with your name on it?  Would you be better off to focus on and follow it?  Or to strike off on your own?

A wise king had this counsel:  

“Put your total trust in the Lord.  Don’t rely on your own intelligence or intuition, but in all your thoughts, words and actions give Him first place.  Then He’ll take your hand and lead you along the path He designed just for you."

Now what feelings rise within you?
