“The whole creation waits with eager longing…”
… for one more snow to pass…
…one more spring to come…
“For who hopes for what he sees?”
“But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” (Rom.8:19,24)
“Be patient, therefore, brothers, until the coming of the Lord. See how the farmer waits for the precious fruit of the earth, being patient about it, until it receives the early and late rains. You also, be patient. Establish your hearts, for the coming of the Lord is at hand…” (James 5:7)
When an unexpected snowfall dumps cold and wet on your springing hopes, take heart—there is ‘an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison’ just around the corner, and in the meantime the power that raised Jesus from the dead surges in the veins of His kin ready to burst forth in the glory of the sons of God revealed. For this all creation waits. In this hope we were saved. ( II Cor.4:17; Rom.8:24)
Let’s hope on beneath the cold of snow and ice, for we are very much alive and well!
