These Days

ice storm 010These cold days say that you can’t grow

They say, “There’s only pain!”

But other days will surely show

These days are not in vain.


Though troubles, just like rain and frost,

Are now here – that’s for sure –

In Christ we hope and have our trust

In Him we can endure.


Don’t let this cold seep in your heart.

Let His Light warm your day.

Be strong In Him and set apart

These days for Him – and pray.


And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold.  But the one who endures to the end will be saved.”
Jesus in Matthew 24:12-13

“Father, please help me to stay close to Your heart. Teach me to continue to look to You and stay hopeful and filled with joy, trusting Your sovereignty. Show me how to point the world to You.”

About Heidi Viars

“If you look for truth, you may find comfort in the end; if you look for comfort you will not get either comfort or truth ...” ― C.S. Lewis ..... In my pursuit of self, I found utter darkness. In my pursuit of truth, I found Jesus, who dispelled the darkness by His forgiveness. Now I follow Him and try to understand Him better. I am a wife, mother of 6, blogger and love taking photographs of sunrises.

    Great thoughts – I like your observations and conclusions – that’s what I see when I see that ice, too – a place ready to be impacted by a thawing touch from God…
