Mysteries that Seasons Send
© 1999, 2014 Michele Vidor Krile
What will become of Summer’s end?
Oh, the mysteries that seasons send!
Can Wisdom follow the Autumn change,
Then without fear, in your heart remain?
Though in the chill of Winter you may wonder
Still, dreariness can be put asunder
God will surely meet you where you are
As you entrust to Him each season of your heart
To our Creator, all mysteries are clearly known
Give to Him total control; He’ll calm your anxious soul
Each day Jesus will walk with you, as Savior, as friend
He will give you strength so you may live as He intends
The Holy Spirit intercedes for you in ways that you cannot
As you seek discernment, He’ll guide you in the will of God
As you wait upon the Lord, Who births Spring anew
At last, His Hope and Joy can truly bloom inside of you!
Ah, those moments and prayers around the bend
Shed light on the mysteries that seasons send!

Job 11:7 “Can you fathom the mysteries of God? Can you probe the limits of the Almighty?”
Eph 1:9 And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ.
I like to share this poem near the end of summer. I wrote it for a crying stranger in a church I was visiting in my early adulthood. I have expanded it since then. In turn, It has blessed me and many others through the years.
Need encouragement and clarity for what lies ahead? Ask God for His discernment when you are unsure what is around the bend. Ask Him for His strength in times of challenge or comfort in times of sadness. Ask for peace in times of chaos and frustration. Ask Him for a grateful heart, for He loves you so much to include you in His marvelous mysteries, in the Big plan! Thank Him that He reveals only what you need to know in order for you to learn to trust and obey! Ask Him to place joy in your heart where there might be negativity… Passion where there is complacency. Praise Him through everything (Yes, sometimes that happens in hindsight.) Ask him for other godly Christians to pray with and support you in your faith journey! Then as God prompts you, give back to others in however He has gifted you to share the Good News of the truth, to support and help others understand the mysteries and life challenges! And as Remember, Jesus is always with those who believe, but we need to spend time with the Lord! Keep talking with Him, reading the Word, keeping open your heart, quieting your thoughts, slowing down and listening to the still small voice of the Holy Spirit!
For more supporting Bible passages, continue on…
Eph 1:4-10 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love, 5) he predestined us to be adopted as his sons through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will– 6) to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. 7) In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8) that he lavished on us with all wisdom and understanding. 9) And he made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10) to be put into effect when the times will have reached their fulfillment–to bring all things in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.
