September is such a great month because it’s filled with expectation.
- How many of us are expecting an end to the summer heat sometime in September?
- How many of us are looking forward to football to start in September?
- How many of us are looking forward to the change in colors of the trees as fall begins to set in?
- (Okay, maybe I am a little early on that one since it won’t happen until October)
You see September is a month filled with hope and expectation, dreams and excitement, relief and anticipation, which are all the things that make it worth waiting for. But, perhaps the greatest thing God sends our way September (and every other month) is not the change in weather but our attitude. The Bible tells us, “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” (1 Corinthians 2:9 NKJV).
The great thing about promise is that it doesn’t just come once a year like September, as a Believer, this promise is for every single day of the rest of your life. The BEST is YET to come and as Believers, we can count on that!
September is a great month filled with promise and I am looking forward to that first cool breeze that spells the end of the dog days of summer for a lot of reasons. But most importantly, this month reminds me to look ahead, for the things that God has prepared for His children.
Remember, Jesus Loves You and So Do I!!
