Waiting for the Sun

The animals know

That it won’t always snow

The birds will sing

With the returning of spring

The flowers bloom

And replace the gray gloom

The budding trees

And buzzing bees

All in due season

God has a reason

He made it all

Winter spring summer fall .

14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years,

15 and let them be lights in the expanse of the heavens to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. – Genesis 1:14-15


  1. I think if it were not for the winter months, we would never really appreciate spring the way that we do. I love so much watching everything come back to life and turn green and all the colors in the flowers, too. And, it is like that when we believe in Jesus Christ, too, for he takes what was dead in sin and he brings it to life, to a new life, not like the old dead life. So, first we have to die to our old lives of sin (winter) and then we can be reborn of the Spirit of God (spring) and have the life of Christ now living within us. Revival is like this, too, seeing those who once were on fire for the Lord drift away from him only to be brought back to life (winter to spring). It is awesome!

      • Paula, I really get that. I had an early menopause because of having parts removed when I was only 31 years old. So, by age 40 I was full swing into menopause and it was awful. By age 52 I was past it, with occasional hot flashes here and there. But, I went through a bad period of depression, probably beginning at age 37 or 38 and lasting until age 43, but it would come and go after that sometimes, too. I still battle those feelings sometimes, but I cry them out to the Lord and he lifts me up. We just have to not rely on our emotions at all and just keep looking to Jesus no matter how bad it gets sometimes. We need to keep praising him in the storms of life, and the joy will return. Praying for you today.

I'd love to hear your thoughts!
