DAY 10 Introspection
Winter is the time of deep introspection and growth for both mankind and nature. The nakedness and vulnerability of the trees reflect one of God and creation’s biggest truths. There is a season of death and there is a season of life of which neither nature nor man have control.
We are all driven underground for a time of introspection, growth and dreaming—dreams of potential to be realized, when the cool air of spring and the warming rays of the sun kiss creation’s face and drive winter’s bite far from our collective memories. Resurrection life is ours.
But remember this, we are the branches and He is the vine. Without Him we can do nothing. In all that we look forward to in this new year, let us look forward to being inextricably connected to Jesus.
Heavenly Father, I recognize that I can do nothing without You. I am totally dependent on You. When I forget this, please remind me, for You are my all in all. Today Lord, I ask You to be totally entwined in every area of my life. You are the vine and I am Your branch. In the mighty name of Jesus. Amen
- Pray for hope to be restored for those who are in a “winter season.”
- Pray that we as His people will be “instant in season and out of season” (be constant no matter how we feel).
- Pray for a fresh outpouring of His love in our hearts, in our families and in our work-places.
