Winter’s Past–A Time for Growth

There’s something about this time of year after a long difficult winter season, that gives us hope that we can move forward. In the past week, or so, we have been able to get outside, and that in itself is a major blessing, after being confined to extra blankets all winter.

We managed to take it all in stride, and after much prayer that the winter would end, it happened. It is more than likely that we will have forgotten how challenging winter was on us, within the next few weeks of warm weather.

We are supposed to be thankful for everything that happens to us, both the good and the not so good, and when the stormy seasons occur in our lives, we can have peace. Does that mean that our circumstances will change? Not always, because God knows where he is leading us, and even enduring the more hurtful times in our lives is part of the process to get us to where the Lord would have us to be.

There is hope beyond our present circumstances; and springtime will always occur after the dead of winter. We may need to clear away some things from our lives, but rest assured, there is new life pushing up through the soil.

God has not forgotten us, he promises that he will never leave us or forsake us. The unfruitful things in our lives will be cleared away so that newness can spring forth and bring us hope and joy.

It’s time to clear away all obstacles, that  may have crept into our lives, and renew our vision for spiritual growth.

 

Courageous and Consistent Faith

About gracemorganwriter

What is a writer? Someone who writes. For me, writing means to observe the world in a fresh way; it gives us encouragement when we are struggling to follow the path, and hope that we can keep pressing towards the mark. Writing gives us grace for the journey, and shines light into the darkened places of our soul.
