Midweek Inspiration | Winter’s Reminder

Winter chill creeps in.

Wind dances against my breath.

Footsteps trudge forward.

Spring’s yet to beckon winter’s death.

 

Against the snowfall,

warmth fills my chest.

Sun’s summer gold

puts the ice to rest.

 

Around me, the world is calm.

Chaos put to bed.

In this moment, worries flutter

and peace enters my head.

 

Life can be like winter.

Cold and misunderstood.

But light reflects His beauty.

Darkness doesn’t exist in good.


(NLT) Hosea 6:03, “Oh, that we might know the LORD! Let us press on to know him. He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring.”

      1. I had a sense about that, which is why I am praying for you. I can’t explain it. It is just what I felt. I am glad to hear that you are doing better today. Love and hugs to you! Sue

      2. I think the explanation is the Holy Spirit 🙂 I’ve been wondering why I suddenly felt so down. I thought maybe hormones/PMS but then at the same time I felt affected in every part of me physically, mental, emotional, and spiritual. I was like well, maybe it’s spiritual warfare. I started to work on the book again, and I’ve been consistent in daily prayer for everyone. Which as soon as both of those happened I started to doubt the writing for the book, and consider not praying for everyone. Immediately, I stopped myself because I know what happens when people stop praying for each other, and I’m not going to let doubt take over. Not when the Holy Spirit lives within me. 🙂

      3. I had a couple of days similar to that, the day before yesterday and the day before that, I think, just like you describe here, where I felt Satan was attacking me, and about the book God had commissioned me to write, too. In fact, I was attacked through a dream this morning, so when I awoke, I prayed and asked the Lord if I did something wrong, and he answered me with this passage of scripture:

        “LORD, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command.Answer me, Lord, answer me, so these people will know that you, Lord, are God, and that you are turning their hearts back again.” 1 Kings 18:36-37

        May this encourage your heart today. Oh, and here is a link to the book. I also sent it to you in a PDF as one whole document.

      4. Thank you so much, it has encouraged me. Recently, I’ve been extremely critical of every little thing of myself and whether or not God is getting time with me, or how much I could be doing better. Truth is, we all can do better, that’s the blessing of humility and growth. But, ironically enough, I was just telling myself yesterday, for a different person, “God accepts us where we are at, not where we should be.” These attacks on myself I will use for His glory, and praise Him. ❤ ❤ ❤
