*Let this God inspired writing, from His heart to yours, teach you how to wait expectantly
on God, during the cold and bitter moments of dormancy.
As the wind blows outside my window; shadows dance across the yard...displaying life from trees that will soon lose their leaves and become dormant, for another season. During this time of dormancy, they will sleep deep, until a new season of springtime awakens them.
As they stand lifeless, during the harsh and cold winter months, they rest from the long hot months of summer, while preparing for moments of new growth. They don't know exactly when this time will come; but they wait expectantly, for the first bud to appear...out of once was a lifeless tree.
Many times in our lives; we too experience a time of dormancy; where once sprung life within us. We sit and wonder when another season will enter our lives and bring about something new; but until then, we must wait for that first new bud of growth to appear.
It's not always easy to sit and wait, during this season of dormancy, while life passes us by; but yet we know that with time and patience, we will come to see what our Maker longs to show us.
As we rest and wait on God, we may experience the harsh and bitter cold winds of circumstance. These moments may seem unbearable at times, while giving us the feeling; that we may never awaken to newness of life again; but as we continue to wait...there's a break in these moments, as the warmth of a sunshiny day takes hold of us...to give us the hope we need to keep waiting...so we wait and continue to stand strong in our faith.
With time, we begin to feel something take place, as the harsh and bitter times of dormancy reach their end. Life is now opening up to new growth, as a new strength takes hold...for now we have grown and have become stronger through this time of dormancy, as we are now becoming something; that will keep us standing strong through time...Amen!!
