I was thinking this morning that springtime is an excellent reminder of God’s faithfulness.
With spring comes new life. beautiful flowers. green grass. and blooming trees.
all of it new and fresh.
and Spring comes every year, without fail.
sometimes it seems like Spring may never come because winter seems to hang on f.o.r.e.v.e.r.
it seems as though the nights will always be long and the sky will always be cloudy.
and it begins to feel as though we will never be warm.
but then spring begins it’s descent on us.
we begin to see the tulips popping up through the dirt, even when it’s still a bit cold outside.
and the sun begins to come up a bit earlier in the mornings, reminding us that the days are getting longer.
and then before we know it, spring is officially here and the windows are open and the birds are constantly singing.
it’s so refreshing, don’t you think?
God’s faithfulness is the same way. Just like we walk through the darkness and chill of winter, we often walk through dark seasons in our lives….
seasons where the night seems to go on forever and we can’t seem to get the “chill” out of our bones.
seasons where it seems like the sky will never be blue again and the flowers will never bloom.
but just like we know that spring always comes, we can be sure that God will bring us through the hard seasons.
we can be confident that He will allow us to see the Light and that one day soon, we will see clear skies.
we can know that His love will keep us warm and that He will cause the flowers to bloom in our lives once again.
