It is so cold outside! This past week with cold and snow, it is hard to imagine that winter will ever be gone and springtime will ever be here again!

Sometimes our lives feel like that. Things are so bad - we have no money, trouble with relationships, our kids are having problems. Where is God? Will He ever be back again? Has He taken off and left us for the winter?

God NEVER leaves us! No matter how bad things may seem, God is always there for us. As is says in 2 Corinthians 4:7-9: "But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show this all surpassing power is from God and not from us. We are hard pressed but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned, struck down, but not destroyed."

If you are having a "winter" day, remember that this is the time to keep talking to God. He never leaves you or goes on vacation for the winter! He is always beside you! This winter weather is only temporary. God is eternal!

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. 2 Corinthians 4:16-18

AH, those winter days....I know them all to well since my wife passed. For to much of the time since that day, I have felt so useless, but God has always been there to hold me up and teach me. Out of every trial and heartache can come a growing in our Lord.
