Sometimes life throws you a curveball that you never thought you’d see coming. You know, those curveballs that really hurt when they hit you because, you trusted much and loved much and now it all seems for naught. Why people do the things they do in the ways that they do them will always be a mystery. But one thing is not a mystery. And that is the love of God. He promises to always be there for us. God will never betray any of His own, for He is our Rock & Fortress … we can run to Him and be safe.
“For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land; The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell…” Song of Solomon 2: 11-13
With Spring just around the corner, the anticipation of what’s to come is extra high. And so it should be. Spring means warmer weather, sunshine, and color, lots of it; color in leaves, flowers, grass, greenery, growing fruits, vegetables, and so on. With the end of winter comes the beginning of life. And I am so grateful. I am reminded that no matter what I may go through in life, God will always make a new beginning (whether on this earth or in Heaven). With the end of the winter of trials comes the spring of newfound joy and peace in the Saviour. He does indeed make all things beautiful in His time.
