When I wake up now, I realize that my Saturday and Sunday mornings of sitting out in my swing, surrounded by all our green flourishing trees and plants, is soon to be on a “seasonal hold.” Once it’s too cold to sit outside and watch the sunrise, I’ll be inside curled up on the sofa with a winter throw across my legs, staring out the window to watch the sun break through my neighbor’s leafless oaks.
And that’s all good, too! One thing I’ve learned about trees in the winter time is this – the fall and winter may be when some trees lose their leaves, but in the winter is when the roots, that private unseen life of a tree, is growing deeper and stronger. (Can you relate?)
But what’s had me thinking this weekend, while studying my Bible and jotting down a few thoughts is this …
No matter what season of life we are in, when we wake up to a new day with Jesus, we wake up to another lovely day!
There’s no way it can’t be.
Because He is there.
He is here.
Do you believe that right now, where you are in life, that God deeply loves you? Or are you doubting His delight in you?
Before you read any further, just sit for a moment with the silence around you and let your thoughts really ponder on that question… do you believe that right now, where you are in life, that God deeply loves you and delights in providing for you?
God always provides for us the time and space to rest with Him IN the season. He is faithful in creating the need in us to come away with Him and simply allow His kindness to restore us. Rejuvenate us.
No matter the season of life we may find ourselves in now, tomorrow, or next month, let’s be sure to worship God with all of our being because with Jesus every morning we wake up, we wake up to the gracious gift of …
Another lovely day.
