It’s apparent by the weather across our country that our dear friend, Punxsutawney Phil, saw his shadow on February 2nd, Ground Hog Day, this year. We’ve definitely been blessed with six more weeks of winter! Ugh!
New England may have been victorious earlier this month in this year’s Super Bowl XLIX, but they certainly have had their share of defeat in the fair weather department this winter.
I enjoy the changing of all four seasons. About the time I begin to tire of one season, the next ushers the last one out. Sometimes ever so gently. Other times with more of a tempest. I’m not a big fan of the cold myself. I’ll choose the beach over snow every time. Unless of course I’m dressed for the occasion and am temporarily residing at a luxe ski lodge complete with a crackling fireplace and some sort of hot toddy to warm my insides as I’m toasting my outer extremities.
How about you? Do you enjoy the different seasons? Do you experience seasons of rain from heaven and fruitful seasons or do you feel as if you are living in a season of drought?
I can assure you this. We all experience times of favor and blessings from God and times when we long to feel His presence, hear His gentle calling on our souls.
When those times arise where you are not experiencing Him to your fullest, Pray! Repent for any unconfessed sin or self-seeking behavior that separate you from Christ. He is a God of love and reconciliation. He longs for His sheep to return home as much as you long for the security of your master.
Winter, Spring, Summer, Or Fall,
All you’ve got to do is call.
And you’ve got a friend.
1 There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under heaven:
and yet He did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good and gave you rains from heaven and fruitful seasons, satisfying your hearts with food and gladness.”
You, God, are my God,
earnestly I seek you;
I thirst for you,
my whole being longs for you,
in a dry and parched land
where there is no water.
Love and laughter,
