Midweek Inspiration | Through Ice Comes Warmth

We all have different seasons in our life. Sometimes, they match the seasons outside.

But more times than not, our own seasons are worse than the worst forecaster of weather.

They are unpredictable. We don’t know how long it will last. Shortages of support are abundant. Darkness fills our days, and feeling refreshed is too chilly.

Yet, if we allow ourselves to understand the season. If we decide not to fear what will pass, then it is not as bad. We find a foothold.

Christ will always be our foothold.

Scripture says it rains on the just and the unjust. Things will happen in our lives that do not seem fair, even those with a close relationship to Christ. It’s because this is the matter of this world. Darkness thrives.

Darkness is our winter. But we don’t have to dread the troubles, the pain, and the fears. We don’t have to embrace or succumb to its lies.

Don’t Fear The Cold, Winter Brings Spring.

No matter how long we ache and believe this will never end.

It will.

But whether or not it is a dullness within us or a blossoming bouquet is determined by how we thrived, not on the darkness, but the Light within.


What’s your favorite flower?

Are you struggling with your season?

  1. This is beautiful ❀️ My favorite flower is the bougainvillea which won’t grow here because it’s too cold…but it makes me look forward to vacations in warmer places and reminds me that the world is great big and beautifully diverse πŸ’πŸŒ·πŸŒΉπŸŒΌπŸŒ»πŸŒΈπŸ₯€πŸŒΊ

  2. Thanks for sharing this. It gives me a different perspective on what some of the people around me might be going through and why they respond to different situations the way they do.

  3. Beautifully encouraging post, T.R. I really love the changing seasons and my favourite flower has to be the daffodil, although I’ll be waiting until March to see them again.

    1. Thank you so much! I really enjoy the changing seasons too! I didn’t realize how much until a few years ago when I moved to a state that didn’t experience the seasons like my home state. Now that I’m back I’ve learned what I used to take for granted, and I try not to anymore. πŸ™‚ Daffodils are nice!!! πŸ™‚

  4. Sometimes I wonder if my prayers will be answered in my lifetime. Then again I can tell my outlook has changed though the circumstances have not. Maybe that is the answer. His grace is sufficient. And he has been oh so good.

    1. Praise God Almighty, you are so right!!! πŸ™‚ I’ve found He is definitely sufficient for us. Even in the moment, when we know nothing else, He holds us close to Him and His promise. And that’s enough. That’s all we need. Amen!! ❀
