As recently as a few weeks ago, I traveled from Northern Ontario to the South East of the province and along the road there was ample snow. That seemed a bit discouraging as it was mid-May. But as the van traveled south, it wasn’t long before the snow line gave way to proper spring surroundings.
Isn’t that the way with our Faith? We expect something good and it is delayed; we accept deep freeze and are suddenly and unexpectedly blessed.
We who walk by faith and not by sight will be learning that God’s sense of humour and sense of timing are rarely compatible with ours. But He is faithful and will never leave us nor forsake us. As we walk, we can expect the unexpected – be it trial or grace moment – and always something good will come out of any circumstance.
For “all things work together for our good” and for those who trust in the LORD with all their hearts, He will make their paths straight. He will never leave us nor forsake us; we can count on that.
