In Every Season

I see Jesus in the summer

In the waves crashing on the blazing beach

In the strength of raging forest fires

In the sweet taste of summer harvest fruit

 

I see Jesus in the autumn

In the richly coloured falling leaves

In the wind that makes them dance for Him

In the scurrying ants and thickening animal fur

 

I see Jesus in the winter

In the uniquely designed bark of ghost gums

Stripped bare to reveal His majesty

Graceful limbs lifted in reverend worship

 

I see Jesus in the spring

In the vast array of flowers

As they sing of His creativity and salvation

In the new lives bounding across the paddocks

 

I see Jesus in the summer

In the abundant harvest of blessings

In the crashing waves of thankfulness

In the raging fires of passion in my soul

 

I see Jesus in the autumn

In uniquely answered prayer and inner peace

As harvest blessings run dry

And the thunderous rain of anxious thoughts flood my mind

 

I see Jesus in the winter

In the midst of all the darkness and cold

Despite my faith shrinking to just puffs of air

Vanishing in the frigid night with every breath

 

I see Jesus in the spring

In the new life His forgiveness brings

As His promises blossom into reality

And from hidden depths my faith bursts forth

 

I see Jesus in all the seasons

Of creation all around

Of life’s struggles and joys

In every season, when I stop and look.
