On this ninth day of April, I am gathering the moments of March.
It was a lion-and-lamb month for sure. (And I'm not just referring to the weather!) Whew...what a whirlwind! Those details shall remain behind the scenes, but I can say that all is well and God is faithful and we have all learned things in the whirlwind.
March illustrates God's faithfulness, maybe more than any other month. The Lord promised the return of the seasons. As long as the earth remains.
"While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, winter and summer, and day and night shall not cease." (Genesis 8:22)
At the beginning of March, however, it doesn't feel that spring is coming. Ever. It is dark, cold, gray, and brown. No signs of life. But then, even when you can hardly imagine it, it comes. We welcome it with open arms, with delight! Daffodils. Buds. Tulips. Sunlight. Hallelujah!
Sometimes -- no, all the time -- this is a life of faith! Faith that He is working when we cannot see. Faith that He will do what He has promised. Faith that He is always good.
