WORDS OF ENRICHMENT
THE FIFTH AND TEMPORARY SEASON
"Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.” Hosea 6:3
So much has transpired since last spring. This March marked a year since COVID-19 swept across our world and decided to stay, an unwanted and unwelcomed visitor.
COVID-19, this unwelcomed and unwanted visitor turned our world upside down in so many ways.
There are four seasons in a year, and COVID-19 has entered as a fifth season bringing a change in our normal causing us to create and live in a “new” normal environment.
The seasons produce different weather patterns and prompt changes.
Even in the fifth season (COVID-19), we can weather the severe changes in our lives all because of Resurrection Sunday, all because of Easter. The day that Jesus rose from the grave with all power in His hands!!! Thank God for His son, Jesus Christ. But prior to that was Good Friday, a dark and gloomy day, the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary.
COVID-19 represents that dark gloomy Good Friday that is associated with pain, hurt, loss, agony and suffering, BUT the resurrection, His resurrection, the resurrection of Jesus Christ represents a time of rebirth, rejuvenation, renewal and restoration. He did it all for us!!!
We are going to come out of this dark gloomy season rejuvenated, renewed, and restored – you just wait and see!!!
During this fifth and temporary season, “Let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not. Galatians 6:9 (KJV)
During this season, stay safe, well and blessed. Wear your mask, exercise social distancing and wash your hands regularly. A change is going to come.
“Spring will come and so will happiness. Hold on. Life will get warmer.”
