As summer’s embrace wanes, we find ourselves on the cusp of autumn’s promise. From toddlers embarking on their first nursery adventure, to high school freshmen navigating new hallways, and university scholars pursuing deeper knowledge, a canvas of rejuvenation stretches before us.
Ecclesiastes reminds us: “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” This transition offers us a pivotal moment to recenter, refocus, and rekindle our inner essence in alignment with God’s design.
Changes, no doubt, can unsettle our spirit. Yet, wrapped in their folds are blessings waiting to be discerned, experiences God has tailored for His glory. While we steer our lives’ vessels in many realms, there are seas we traverse where the winds and waves are directed by others. Still, amidst these unpredictable currents, the anchoring truth is that all tides rise and fall under God’s watchful gaze.
Gleaning wisdom from the Scriptures, let’s endeavor this season to reflect introspectively on all life’s dimensions – emotions, relationships, ambitions, and setbacks. As we journey, may we continually discern Jesus’ transformative hand in our midst.
To all stepping into this academic chapter, from nursery to tertiary education – my prayers are with you for insight, resilience, and serendipitous joys. Embark on this season with vigor, holding onto the conviction that with Jesus at the helm, every sunset heralds a divine dawn.
