Brrrrrrrrr ! What happened to the eighty-five degree days we were having last week? We had to build a fire in our wood stove this afternoon after we got home from church! I thought we were probably through with that but yesterday when I read the weather report online I saw we were not! So my husband decided he had better put some more wood in the wood box. Though I'm not crazy about the mess it makes bringing in wood, I love the cozy warmth the wood heater gives off . Just makes me feel so relaxed and "at home"! Most every year when spring comes we will have some really warm weather and then all of a sudden...a cold snap! Sometimes my life seems to be like that. I will get really close to the Lord....busy in His work....and will get so warm in the nearness of Him that I think I will never be cold again. And then all of a sudden....a cold snap! I will forget to pray. I get busy and don't read my Bible. I get irritable and snap at a friend. ( "Where no wood is, there the fire goeth out:" Proverbs 26: 20) Pretty soon I feel as though I'm out in a blizzard without a coat on I'm so cold....spiritually speaking! And then, mercifully, my God will light a fire in the depths of my soul and thaw me out and get me warm again in His nearness. What an awesome God we serve!
"But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord GOD, that I may declare all thy works."
Psalm 73: 28
I hope you feel the warmth of God in your soul today!
God bless you....
