I am realizing that 2019 feels like a whole new world to me.
It feels so radically different than 2018.
It’s like a line was crossed at 2018. Right now life feels more intense, it feels harder, it feels darker, it feels faster.
If God hasn’t changed, then what has changed?
Lately when I open my bible, I seem to open up to this passage –Song of Solomon 2:10-14, where I’ve drawn a flower to the side of the verse some time ago (to the best of my ability 🙃☺️🌷)
This morning I came to the Passion Translation of this passage while doing some reading online, it’s the passage that I often come to in my NKJV version that I read from, but reading it from the Passion Translation sort of gives me a new and refreshing way to look at it. This passage gives me encouragement and hope.
“The season has changed, the bondage of your barren winter has ended, and the season of hiding is over and gone. The rains have soaked the earth and left it bright with blossoming flowers. The season for singing and pruning the vines has arrived. I hear the cooing of doves in our land, filling the air with songs to awaken you and guide you forth. Can you not discern this new day of destiny breaking forth around you? The early signs of my purposes and plans are bursting forth. The budding vines of new life are now blooming everywhere. The fragrance of their flowers whispers, ‘There is change in the air.’ Arise, my love, my beautiful companion, and run with me to the higher place. For now is the time to arise and come away with me.” – Song of Solomon 2:11-13
No matter how dark the darkness may seem, I know I can remember that this is true,
Daniel 2:22, “He reveals profound mysteries beyond man’s understanding. He knows all hidden things, for He is light, and darkness is no obstacle to Him.”
