Since it has been such a cold and miserable winter, many anxiously await spring, as it sits ready to pounce upon us. I felt the need to share this, so I dug it up out of the graveyard of old posts. I pray it blesses each reader. May the Lord bless you with a special touch of His presence…
I share with you what the Lord spoke to me at a dark and dry time of my life…
“During the long winter months, when nature has seemingly lost all its beauty, life still flows deep within its darkest recesses. The trees appear naked and dead without their leaves and blooms. The ground seems hard and bare without the beauty of flowers and grass. But, in reality, life is ever flowing, ever-present.
It flows in the sap that is deep within the trees. It stirs within the seeds of flowers yet to bloom. Both are quietly at work, waiting for their appointed time to be awakened and spring to life.
Sometimes My people also must endure their long winter months of travail when their fruit seems to have withered and their branches seem bare. But deep within their roots, My Spirit moves with eternal life.
All may seem dark, lost, and devoid of life and beauty, but, in such a life lived with Me, My work still goes on.
Sometimes it must be that My precious ones must endure the darkness in order to see the Light. Then when My Light shines on them, they come to life and begin, once again, to blossom and bear fruit.
Our lives are one – yours and Mine. Therefore, all that is of My nature must pass into yours, if so be that your roots have grown deep within My Son. So, take courage.
Allow My Life to flow through you, especially in the darkest of times, and then all will be yours – love, joy, peace, comfort, hope, strength, power, trust, healing, patience, humility, wisdom, and victory. I watch over you to care for and bless you.”
~May your heart beat as one with His.
