SOMETIMES you get so focused on the trials in a particular season that you miss the bigger picture of life. Meditate on how God’s purpose is unfolding in this season of your life. How do you feel about your current season? How do you relate to the voices of both autumn and winter? Think about ways to celebrate the beauty of your particular season in spite of its challenges.
