My phone beeps with an incoming text.
It’s a weather alert from The Weather Channel app. saying,
“It is possible that the valley floors will see a significant snowfall in the mid to late week time frame…
but it is also possible that little or no snow will fall.”
Uncertainty…that seems to be the world’s prognostication for everything.
On a walk through my neighborhood, the One Who’s Breath is Life whispers a sure word to my spirit.
“Whatever I touch cannot remain dead, hopeless, lifeless.”
No matter if it snows
or doesn’t snow…
Spring is sure to come…
“His extravagant offerings are not limited to the incarnation and crucifixion but given each day in every beauty found in nature, in every goodness we experience in relationships, even in every moment of time and every breath of life that we breathe.” Dana Candler, Entirety
“Whatever is good and perfect comes down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens.
He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.”
James 1:17 N.L.T.
