“Fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.” Hebrews 12:2NASB
Finally we have made it through the bitter cold of winter and now we are in the midst of spring. Spring is the time that you will see the trees begin to bloom and the grass begin to grow. If you listen closely, one can hear the chirping of the birds that sing the joyus melody of spring. Yes winter has pass and spring is upon us.
Just as this is true in our world in which we live so it is true in our daily lives. Today you maybe going through a “winter storm” in your life. Maybe you are feeling the pain of the harsh wind as it hits your face. You feel hopeless, alone and it seems that this will never come to pass. May I encourage you that Spring is coming. No matter how hard life may get there is always hope and that is through Jesus Christ.
If there is anyone that can relate to the “winters” that we face in our life it surely is Jesus Christ. He felt the rejection of His own people, the sting of denial from one of His most trusted disciples and betrayed from one who claimed he was a follower. Yes He faced the “winter” but early one Sunday morning “spring” came. Jesus suffered, died but He rose again.
You and I can make it through the “winters” we face by putting our focus on Him. By His strength and power we can rest assured that even through the coldest of winters spring will come.
