Eyes of faith

It is the middle of February and here in Manitoba that means we still have many weeks of winter snow and cold. Sometimes when you look outside you might start to believe that the seasons will never change. That's when we have to trust what we cannot see.

“Now faith is [the] assurance [or, substance] of [things] being hoped for [or, being confidently expected], [the] confident assurance [or, proof] of things not seen." (Hebrews 11:1) Analytical-Literal Translation

I will keep this image in my mind to help me endure the seemingly endless days of winter here, knowing that in His time, God brings the seasons back full circle. Seed time and harvest are yet ahead!

I love all of the seasons--each for different reasons. But, I would imagine having a long winter can get a little much after a while. Keeping those pictures of spring in your mind must help.

For we know (trust) that the seasons will change, and spring (hope) will arrive again. Cycling around and around, the seasons are everchanging. And each season is a testimony to God's wonderful handiwork!!
