Thought for the week

Holding On

To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.
Ecclesiastes 3:1

Recommended Reading
Colossians 2:6-7
Did you know there's a connection between thunderstorms and the quality of the food you eat? High winds have a positive effect on many plants, stimulating their roots to grow deeper so as to anchor the plant more firmly in the soil. And when roots grow deeper, they find fresh reserves of minerals that are taken up by the plant and deposited in the fruit. And it's minerals that provide nutrition. A stressed plant offers the sweetest fruit -- in due time.

And the same is true with us. When God allows winds of adversity to blow against us, we are forced to extend the roots of our faith deeper into the soil of God's promises and provision, just to hang on through the storm. But when the storm passes, we have newfound faith, strength, maturity, and humility as a result of learning to hold on to God. That's why God doesn’t remove every storm so that we learn to depend on the grace of Christ (2 Corinthians 12:9-10). But we have to give the process time.

If you are in a storm right now, dig deep into God and hold on. The sweet fruit of peace and joy will soon appear.

Patience is the ballast of the soul that will keep it from rolling and tumbling in the greatest storms.

Thanks, Ken.
Not everyone can be queen.....there has to be someone standing on the curb to wave as I go by.
