If the little jingle taught to children is true, “April showers bring May flowers,” then May should be spectacular! Although April was a very wet month the hope is that nature received the needed nourishment to bless us with spectacular beauty. Already, that which was dormant has budded and new life has begun. In the Lord’s wisdom we too experience different seasons in life’s journey.
Can you recall “seasons” of your life marked by suffering or difficulty? Perhaps life seemed unbearable and you weren’t sure if you could even go on, but you did. Now you can see how God used those experiences in shaping the person you are today. Maybe you’re in that season now, wondering why? If that’s where you are, hold fast, God’s word promises good news, and in wisdom, He provides a visual illustration through the changing of seasons. In the 3rd chapter of Ecclesiastes, God’s Word reminds us there is a season for everything.
It is good for us to be reminded that most who come to the Muncie Mission are experiencing “winter” and dormancy in their life. As a result, few have little, if any, hope. As Christians, we have the Good News they need, therefore, we pray their time at the Muncie Mission will be a time of healing and restoration that will bring new life in the future.
Thank you for all you do and have a blessed May!
