“He who began a good work in you will complete it until the day of Christ Jesus.” Growth takes time, but we know God is at work.
Here we are in winter, and I’m taking down Christmas decorations today. The house looks a little bare. The yard looks a little bare. I’ve had a tiresome, hard-to-shake cough. But I am thinking that when ground lies fallow for awhile, the rest makes it more healthy and fertile later on. So as we go through the bleaker months of winter, may we remember that God is not absent, but present, and can use the winter as well as the summer.
