I watched The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe not too long ago on TV, and one line resonated with me so powerfully.
Mr. Tumnus: Here it's always winter, never Christmas. It's been a long winter.
The delivery of his line brought tears to my eyes because my soul was aching in agreement. There was a long pause between the two sentences in his line. And was confessed with such sorrow in his eyes. "It's been a long winter."
Being real with you, as this blog is all about - I'll confess. I'm there today. It's been a long winter in my storm.
If you can relate to this, I'll pray for you too. Just let me know in the comments.
Some days, I think it's okay to just hurt. To tell God "It's been a long winter." He knows the cries of our soul anyway. And He still promises Spring.
