Pine trees heavy laden with snow were my constant reminder today.
Every time I glanced out my windows.
I was mindful.
Mindful of the fact that my God does all things well.
Even sending snow in the springtime.
He never makes mistakes.
I looked at the pines and I could so relate.
My heart felt as burdened as those needles bending under the weight of heaviness.
Heavy with the weight of accepting the things I cannot change.
And learning to trust. With all my heart.
Embracing, once again, a season of waiting. Of believing. Of pressing in. Of not wavering in my faith. Not even once.
A season of complete surrender.
He who carried the weight of Calvary is able to carry my burden too.
He is able.
Today I looked at the falling snow and I remembered once again.
What a sovereign God I serve.
The ONE who knows that this tree so desperately needed the moisture today.
He knows the burden on my own heart too.
His ways are higher. His thoughts are too.
His plans and purposes are always fulfilled.
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
and do not return to it without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.”
Have your way, Lord Jesus!
