October 31 & November 1, 2009 "Autumn Season"

Triumphant Victorious Reminders
Inspired by the Holy Spirit
Written By: Teresa Stevens Criswell

"LORD, remind me how brief my time on earth will be. Remind me that my days are numbered, and that my life is fleeing away. My life is no longer than the width of my hand. An entire lifetime is just a moment to you; human existence is but a breath."
~ Psalm 39:4 & 5 ~


I love the Autumn season in Texas. It is so crisp as it brings refreshment; like drinking out of an oversized coffee mug filled with hot apple cider as it warms me up from the inside out.

As I am reminded of Fall and how this is the time of harvesting for many farmers throughout the Midwest, I want to desire to see a great harvest of people that do not yet know God intimately and personally through Jesus Christ Who is The Seed, Who is The Word Made Flesh!

As the agendas of today, tomorrow and the next day that attempt to sweep me away; I pray instead that I will reveal a glimpse of God's memorable, indescribable, beautiful fragrance. A fragrance of His effervescent, crisp, refreshing comfort in the midst of the lifeless, dulling and painful seasons of our lives. We can reveal it; but only by His strength and His ability.

I pray that the autumn season is a reminder of us 'fall'ing on our knees in awe of Almighty God and His unfailing love.

  2. Teresa, your strong love for the Lord really shines through in your writing. I'm always left feeling "Lord! Help me to love You like that!"

    Hey, did you know that if you go into your 'edit profile' section and check the box that says 'show email notification' or something like that, when people receive your email comments in their inbox, they can respond to your comment? Right now, yours shows up as 'no reply,' which means I couldn't reply to your last comment on my post, which means I had to comment on the actual post and make a total fool of myself. Now you'll just have to go there and read it for yourself...heavy sigh. heheh
