Hold Fast.

“So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.” II Corinthians 4:18

These days it’s easy to just see sticks hugged tight by snow. Snow, that I love and wouldn’t mind a few more feet of. But then, you all know my stance on Winter. These sticks are what I see now, but with a little sunshine and warmth, they will bring beauty:

And beauty abounds.

I love that God sends us reminders in the form of small things (like rose bushes in snow) to show us more of His glory and purpose. This one, beautiful life is only temporary. How glorious will eternity be!

  1. Thank you so much for your words of encouragement that I needed. Here is something else that I needed today. I thought the repeated emphasis was not tiring, but so encouraging because of which words they were.

    Listen to the Spirit…. Love…love…love, never counting the cost. Go into the marketplace and stay with me. Pray, fast. Pray always, fast. Be hidden. Be a light to your neighbor’s feet. Go without fear into the depth of man’s heart. I shall be with you. Pray always. I will be your rest.
