New life

The fig tree in bud, a woman with child, these are signs of the promise of new life on earth. Our faith can go through winter phases. In these we long for spring, for freshness and a bit of consoling heavenliness. The Word helps us in winter times even though we may not always feel helped by it. Yet the Word settles into our deepest being, making a home there if we keep following Jesus Christ. I must keep engaging with the Word because it helps me to see beyond seasonal trials into God’s great abiding love.
