  1. So beautiful. Thank you
    I think we all feeling like you presently but gotta keep the HOPE.. Blessings
    Carmel

  2. Oh how lovely! We don’t get such freezing weather, but being an Island we get four seasons in one day sometimes. Today its miserable. Cold, damp, grey, but this will change. Our daffodils are blooming and other bulbs are appearing. Without the rain we would not have our beautiful Spring days. Ecclesiastes is one of my favourite books. It can seem so dire and yet….so hopeful. Honestly – it makes me smile at my humanity. Thank you for your encouragement to adjust our thinking and keep looking to the One who has everything planned.

  3. I can certainly relate and have relied on knowing things will change. Just not always sure it will be for the better. What I do know is that God will be with me and my family and that gives me comfort.

  4. So beautifully wrote so beautifully said. I love when you write incourage. As you write from you heart. Nothing last on earth for ever that is so true. That is why I believe we should live everyday for the Lord as best we can and do what Psalm 118 verse 24 says. Yes it can be hard to do what that Psalm says if our world is crashing around us. Because of ill health or lost our job or family member not well Adult or child. But Psalm 118 verse 24 says “This is Day that the Lord has made Let Us Rejoice And Be Glad In It” every Day is the day the Lord has made. We are to Rejoice in it no matter what we go through. No matter how hard that is. Yes it is easy to do that when everything is going well. But in the hard times it is even harder. But we have to try and do it. Go to God in prayer with everything thing because he cares for us plus stand on the promises in his word the Bible. We that are saved have a lot to look forward to. When we all get to Glory. We know when we get there Glory and our loved ones that were saved that have gone before us we will see again. What a day that will be for us all. All in Glory we that are saved know it last forever. Not like all in earth in doesn’t last for. As nothing on earth last forever. So like the song we sing on earth it an golden oldie. You get it on YouTube it is “When we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing that will be” Oh what a day of rejoicing that will be when we get to Heaven. All us that are saved. Especially to see all our loved ones that are saved that have gone before us. Most of all Jesus. So looking forward to that day. Love today’s read Aliza. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xxxx

  5. My mother used to say “This too shall pass” and time marches on, plus we lose an hour of time this weekend. Thank You for your thoughts about God doesn’t change, but what is He trying to tell us or teach us this year?????

  6. praying for you that the season you are feeling will be fleeting….joy will spring and be born in you….prayers go up blessings come down….

  7. Aliza, this is lovely. Such good reminders to us. This season will pass and new seasons will arrive. Stay warm!

  8. Hi Aliza,

    Lovely post! The scriptural reminders from Soloman and Revelation are very appropiate for this season we’re all experiencing. We often have something else going on as well, which makes whatever season we’re in, that more stressful. Leaving our burdens with Jesus, and searching God’s Word returns the hope that we need every day.

    Thanks for these reminders, Sandy

  9. Aliza…I felt like I was walking right next to you. Beautiful writing. Beautiful message..
    Thank you

  10. You are gaining wisdom beyond your years, Aliza. To embrace the season you’re in—even see God in it—that’s a giant step toward spiritual maturity!

  11. Aliza,

    Such great truths. Nothing lasts forever. Life keeps evolving & seasons change. There is one constant in all of life whether good or bad & that is God. He is there walking beside us on our journey. He knows all our pain, sorrow, & happiness. Keep looking upward & seeing God in every season of your life. Spiritual maturity for sure.

    Blessings 🙂

  12. Thank you for reminding us to embrace the season of life we are in. Every season brings forth new challenges and new blessings. Looking beyond our “now” gives us hope for a brighter tomorrow.

  13. I read this tonight, after my 21 yr old son’s funeral this morning. No, nothing lasts forever. My child didn’t, but his soul will. And I also know that although the hurt will last forever, it will eventually lessen as well.

    • Angel, I don’t know if you will get this but I just needed to leave my heartfelt condolences for you and your family. The LORD is your keeper; The LORD is your shade at your right hand. Psalm 121:5

      Joy Comes In The Morning,
      Sharah.

  14. Reading this devotion spoke to me and brought hope (also a song as I started singing “There will be a Day” out loud.) Thank you for speaking directly to my heart and putting the words I often am not able to, into my prayers. God bless you.
