Seasons are a part of life. Just as the leaves turn to rusty hues and the cold winds blow away the warmth, so do our lives change. There are times of darkness, times of light, days to plant and years to reap.
The story of Sarah, one of the matriarchs in the Bible. She was a woman of faith. She had to wait for years, but God fulfilled His promise to her.
And suddenly a violent storm arose on the sea, so that the boat was being covered by the
waves; but Jesus was sleeping… (Matthew 8:24)
In this scripture Jesus Himself is giving us the perfect example of what to do during a storm. Keep on sleeping, not worth losing any sleep over it, because as another scripture says: Matt 6:27 AMP – And who by you by worrying can add one hour to (the length of) his life? Now I know it’s way easier said than done. Once you are in the midst of whatever you are struggling with (Your storm), it is hard to see the light, keep the faith and continue sleeping when all the worries keep you in fact awake. But I am here to say…..Trust and keep on sleeping.
Do you like to eat a salad? And do you put seeds in it? Healthy and tasty pine nuts, pumpkin seeds etc. But by eating these seeds, we don’t let them come to their full potential.
