Do You Expect Perpetual Summer in Your Spiritual Life?
I have just recently returned from a trip to the Mexican Riviera where the sun-drenched beaches and azure blue waters warmed and uplifted my spirit. The trip reminded me that although I don’t experience perpetual summer where I live, I can rest in the fact that summer always returns, both in the natural cycle of nature and in my spiritual life.
My problem is that I’ve come to expect summer all year round in my relationship with God. And when “my winters of discontent” set in, I’m sent reeling with questions, disappointments and doubts. But when I read Romans 8:18 I get God’s perspective on life.
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us! (Amplified Version.)
