There is hope and predictability in the seasons- I love that I can depend on them to do their thing even when I find that my life is changing like shifting sand. It's good to know the dogwood still blooms, the robins return and the weather gets warmer.
Just like last year.
I believe God build predictability and stability into His creation to remind us that He is never-changing. The sun rises, the sun sets, the stars come out. Same routine day after day. (thank goodness for that.) Everything that He has made is always on time; rarely early, never late.
But always on time.
The occurences of nature and creation reassure me as I look out the window of my sometimes crazy life and see that around me, all is as it should be because God has it under control.
It is then that I realize I can give him my finite problems, broken relationships and daily stresses.
He seems to be able to keep the earth rotating on his axis without any help from me.
But I would have a hard time keeping my world from spinning out of control without a lot of help from Him.
