No matter how bad things seem ….. there’s always something to be thankful for! I’m thankful that God created magnolias to blossom in the middle of winter. They are like a ray of sunshine against a dark ….. cold ….. and grey backdrop. For many right now ….. the backdrop is looking a little bleak. Inflation ….. rising prices ….. sickness ….. increase in violence and crime ….. anxiety ….. to name a few. I encourage you not to look at the backdrop ….. but look for the magnolias! They are a reminder that God is in control. World problems will come and go ….. but He reigns supreme for all eternity!
“But the Lord reigns forever, executing judgment from his throne.
He will judge the world with justice and rule the nations with fairness
The Lord is a shelter for the oppressed, a refuge in times of trouble.”
Psalm 9: 7-9
