Spring is Here!

Can you believe it. Spring is finally here. We have been waiting for it and now its official. So, this morning I got out my shorts and sandals. I packed away all my sweaters. And then I walked outside…

Hey, wait a minute. 20 degrees. Snow. Where is spring?

You ever feel that way when it comes to life. You know that God has brought new life to you, but nothing has changed. You still don’t have relief. You still face the challenges in your marriage. You still think your job is a waste of time. What do you do in those times?

Faith is knowing that though everything looks cold and wintery around you, Spring is still on the way. It is trusting God that he does provide for our needs. He does refresh us when we need it. He is sprouting new life below the layer of snow and ice.

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance of what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1

  1. Brian – thanks for this analogy, it was needed today! We feel frustrated about what appears to be a lack of growth and change in a situation we are in, and it is good to remember that things will not always be this way, and that changes may be going on underneath that we can’t yet see.
