Winter.

This is one of my newest photographs. I took it while I was on theMILL fall retreat. It had snowed the previous night and it was beginning to melt as the sun came out.  I thought I would share it because it reminds me of what God has been doing in my heart lately. Some of you may know that I have a natural tendency towards cynicism. Well, I’d let that cynicism have a hold on my heart for a while, like a cold winter takes hold of Colorado. Lately I’ve been convicted on loving people again. Loving as Christ loves. Genuinely, compassionately, unconditionally, whole-heartedly loving people. It’s been a difficult process and has been driving me to do things altogether foreign to me. I’ve found that it has been a thawing process. Part of the ongoing redemption process, I suppose. Jesus has been melting away my cynicism a bit at a time. That’s what He’s doing in my heart. What’s He doing in yours?
