Middle of Winter

As we move into the middle of the winter season we may feel anxious, sad and even under the weather due to the wintertime blues. Despite the lack of sunshine and being cooped up indoors, as Canadians it is okay feel this way. In our humanity, we at times feel weak, weary, and overwhelmed. The good news is we don’t have to stay there because God wants us to experience His presence, love and joy. Jesus, who experienced every human condition comforts us with these words, “Come to Me, all you who are weary and heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matthew 11:28). May we come to Jesus, who awaits us with wide-open arms, ready to restore us to a place of health, healing, joy, peace and hope.
