Do you ever have the Winter blues? Tired of the cold, barren, and dead-looking life outside? Sometimes I just can wait for Spring to get here! I think my mind and body still haven't adjusted from living in the tropics. I just love feeling the warmth of the sunshine against my skin. I still want to walk around in flip flops and somehow that's not working out so well with a bunch of snow on the ground! Oh, the changes we go through, just like the seasons of the year. I keep trying to remind myself, that in time, this season of life will pass too. As much as I'm trying to make the most of this season of life, I long for the day of a new season. Until then, I wait on my Lord, laying my head at his feet each day because without Him I wouldn't make it. Its a humbling process...I've never waited on the Lord's timing as I have lately. Being still is definitely not easy but I can feel the growth that this process will somehow bring. One day, I will get to see the beautiful bloom of life that God will have created through a time that, at times can feel cold, lonely and barren. I've been reminded of God's love and faithfulness through these verses:
Yet this I call to mind
and therefore I have hope:
Because of the LORD's great love we are not consumed,
for his compassions never fail.
They are new every morning;
great is your faithfulness.
I say to myself, "The LORD is my portion;
therefore I will wait for him."
The LORD is good to those whose hope is in him,
to the one who seeks him;
it is good to wait quietly
for the salvation of the LORD.
