The same exact tree in Spring and Winter
look very different.
One looks like death
One looks like life
One looks like the end
One looks like beginnings
One looks old
One looks new
One looks barren
One looks full
One looks hopeless
One looks hopeful
If we find ourself stuck and looking at the dead barren tree of Winter without the hope and anticipation of the coming of Spring we can’t move into the abundant future God has for us.
Seasons of life will come and go.
Some seasons our soul sings loudly “It Is Well” while other seasons our soul doesn’t seem to sing at all.
We MUST keep singing as though it is well even when nothing feels or looks well right now.
We MUST get a vision of our Winter tree in the Spring.
How does the trees weather the storms of life and the changing of seasons?
Stop looking at the outward appearance of the tree.
The roots are what really matters.
We MUST stay grounded and rooted in Christ.
Cling to the hope of Spring …. it’s coming!

Let your roots grow down deeply in Him, and let Him build you up on a firm foundation.
Be strong in the faith, just as you were taught, and always spill over with thankfulness.
