Promises · Reminded

unexpected reminder…

A hymn sung at a funeral…
one I’ve never thought of as a favorite…
stirred my heart…
with an unexpected reminder…

In the bulb there is a flower; in the seed an apple tree;
In cocoons, a hidden promise: butterflies will soon be free!
In the cold and snow of winter there’s a spring that waits to be,
Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

There’s a song in every silence, seeking word and melody;
There’s a dawn in every darkness, bringing hope to you and me.
From the past will come the future; what it holds a mystery,
Unrevealed until its season something God alone can see.
In our end is our beginning; in our time infinity;
In our doubt there is believing; in our life eternity,
In our death a resurrection; at the last, a victory,
Unrevealed until its season, something God alone can see.

Reminded… as Believers… we all go through seasons…
some dark… ugly… cold… silent…
but He promises… in Christ… there is more…
There are those I love… going through some interesting seasons…
and today the words of this song… reminded afresh… His promise
He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all,
how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?
Romans 8:32 ESV
