It hasn't snowed down here in the South in a loooong time. At least not where i live. These are the breath-taking views i woke up to this morning as i left home for Church. It was freezing, but breath-taking all the same. It was also a blink and you'd miss it moment,as when i left Church this afternoon, the snow had completely melted and could almost have never occurred.
I don't like change very much. I deal with it as it happens because it's bound to happen, but that doesn't mean i like or welcome it. That is not too say that i like routine either. Infact, the creative part of me probably hates routine much more than i resent change. So, i'm trying not to grumble and complain as increasingly, the seasons appear to be departing from their established pattern. It's snowing in Spring for goodness sake!
One can draw parallels between the 'mixed-up' seasons and life i.e. things do not always fall in line with expectations or well laid out plans. However, just as the snow that 'shouldn't' have fallen today melted within a few hours, and the known pattern was re-established, i strongly believe that when life throws us curve balls, the balance will ultimately be restored and the Master Plan will be established once again. It may happen within a couple of hours, or sometimes it might take a couple of years, but ultimately, all things work together for our good (Romans 8:28). All we have to do is hold on even against the odds.
But those who wait upon God get fresh strength.
They spread their wings and soar like eagles,
They run and don't get tired,
they walk and don't lag behind (Isaiah 40:31)
Don't overlook the obvious here, friends. With God, one day is as good as a thousand years, a thousand years as a day. God isn't late with his promise as some measure lateness. He is restraining himself on account of you, holding back the End because he doesn't want anyone lost. He's giving everyone space and time to change (2 Peter 3:8)
God bless you all. Have a wonderful week.
