I wish I had been born in a culture where people refer to the Fall season as Autumn. Autumn sounds so cosmopolitan! Not Fall. Fall is a dreary name for a dreary season.
All right, Ms Miserable. What’s your gripe?
4 Generations come, and generations go,
but the earth lasts forever. Eccl. 1:4
As I walked around the yard I found rose bushes in various stages of beauty. Granted we do not think “beauty” when we see the lush colorful flowers drop and leave only hulls. But look with an eye of vision. If the bloom doesn’t drop, no new blooms will come. Very much like life, isn’t it?
Overall life’s cycle consists of youth, maturity, old age, and death. Odd that death is always added into life’s cycle. Only one of these age seasons is guaranteed; that is death. Humm.
The Bible says, “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.” Ps 116:15
The Writer of the Bible is the only one who sees the result of death. He knows. There must be something good! Spring must be coming! Youth must be coming! The roses must be coming.
SIGNIFICANT NOTE: You see that that Ps. verse has a very important modifying phrase; that is, “of his saints.” I believe the Lord grieves deeply when the will of a man or a woman refuses to accept his offer to become his saint. His saint, his follower, a believer in Jesus Christ.
“Jesus is the only way to heaven. Such an exclusive statement may confuse, surprise, or even offend, but it is true nonetheless. The Bible teaches that there is no other way to salvation than through Jesus Christ. Jesus Himself says in John 14:6, I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” https://www.gotquestions.org/Jesus-only-way.html For more in depth look, visit the link.
If you wish to “bloom again” you really should give thought to the matter. Death of the body is not death of the soul. Where will you go when you no longer live in your earthly body?
