Yay! It’s magnolia season! These beautiful trees remind me that ….. in every season ….. there is something beautiful! Just as most trees have lost their leaves and blossoms ….. these beauties do their thing. The same God who waited for the wine to run out at a wedding and then made the best wine out of water ….. the same God who waited four days after Lazarus died to bring him back to life ….. is the God who waits till things seem hopeless and then shows up in amazing ways! If you are in a winter season ….. look out for the magnolias!
Are you going through a difficult time that is beyond your control? There are seasons in life when we’ve done all we can ….. and we just have to wait out the storm. That’s when we can go to the ‘secret place’ which is ‘under the shadow of The Almighty’ and ‘find shelter under the shadow of His wings until these troubles pass by.’ Troubles ‘come to pass’ ….. but the ‘Word of the Lord stands forever.
