The other day I noticed the leaves were beginning to change. It seemed rather strange since we have barely had a day with temperatures below ninety degrees in months. Even though cooler weather seems to speed up the change a bit, God must have placed the trees on some sort of timer…when it’s time, those leaves are going to change. It’s God’s timing for this part of His creation.
One of the most difficult concepts for your children to understand and accept is the idea of God’s timing. None of us like to wait for something we want or think we need. Children and teens may have a particularly difficult time waiting for the things they have asked God to provide.
