Do you feel cold?
I’m not talking bundling against freakish sub-zero temperatures.
I mean do you feel cold?
Is your heart chilly?
Has frostbite crept into your soul?
Have you ignored a pain so long that it’s become numb?
Do you harbor bitter resentment toward a friend or situation? Toward God?
Tip an iceberg, dig beneath the surface.
Why are you shivering out in the elements?
Ask the hard questions. Today.
Grab a pen and write like mad. Scream your answers to the sky.
But don’t look at yourself too long. When you find yourself shattered, invite the whitehot power of the Gospel into your life.
Confess that you can’t, but Christ did.
“Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, obtaining the outcome of your faith, the salvation of your souls.” (1 Peter 1:8-9)
If you’re feeling cold today, wrap yourself up in Christ.
