WRAPPED IN WINTER - October 1, 2021 by Max Lucado

Mike: If you are like me and have a hard time with the season of winter then the following devotional is for you! Winter is cold often dreary. The daylight hours are shorter and the dark of night comes too early. "Winter" is often used as a description when we are living through a time of troubles. Take HOPE from what Max writes.

Max: Winters are a part of life—some personal, some global—but all are powerful. Try as we might to bundle up and lean into the wind, the heartiest among us can fall. Nights are too long, and the question is all too common: Will this winter ever pass?

God has a six-letter word of encouragement: E-S-T-H-E-R. The book of Esther was written to be read in wintertime for the person who feels outnumbered by foes, outmaneuvered by fate, and outdone by fear. It’s as if God, in his kind providence, heard all the prayers of all the souls who have ever been stuck in an arctic February. And to every person who has longed to see a green sprig on a barren branch, he says, “Follow me. I want you to see what I can do.”
