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.
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?
