The same is true in life. Some seasons, we thrive, and other seasons, we're dead trees standing. When it comes to spiritual matters, I'm glad the Master Gardener doesn't chop us down during the harsh days of winter. I'm glad he loves us in our barrenness and waits patiently for spring. ♦
"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
