"How precious to me are your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them!" (Psalm 139:17 NIV)
I love fall. It's my favorite season because it never lets me down. Here in the Midwest, when it's hot and sunny, we say it's a "last taste of summer" and wear shorts and eat salads.
When it's cold and rainy, we say that it's "autumnal" and wear fleece and eat pot roast.
I love everything about fall, but maybe what I love most is that Thanksgiving is its signature holiday. I'm crazy about Thanksgiving, which is why I'm so excited we're going to be spending the next month here on TruthBytes feasting on psalms of praise and Thanksgiving. This is a wise thing to do because praising God and giving thanks reorient us.
These intentional practices redirect our minds away from what we don't have to what we do have. They refocus our vision away from who we are and cast it on who God is. And both of these are to our good and His glory.
Maybe you, like me, could use a reboot. Maybe your mind and heart, like mine, could use a redirect. Maybe you'll want to join me in asking, "God, please reset, refresh, refocus, and renew us with Yourself."
And He will, for He is faithful in every season.
