Blessings to you in this new year, 2024. I am so thankful we are here. The snow is a stunning reminder of God’s promises and His relentless commitment to His people, wayward as we can be! I confess I have wrestled with the load I’ve carried over the past months. But oh, the sweetness of the Spirit’s conviction and counsel! What release I have experienced in responding to the Lord’s hand of correction.
Today in Mississippi: a “winter storm.”
Snow, falling in pure white-soft silence. The winter wind brings a restless chill, but all creation echoes the Spirit’s insistent call.
Such a tender call of correction.
Such a tender call to trust.
Such a tender call to embrace His love by releasing control.
Why does God make such an amazing promise? Love. Pure, unfailing love.
Blessed is the one who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. Sit here awhile. Let His love quietly captivate you. He is more than enough, so much more. Answer His call.
Be still and know that I am God.
