Tonight at around seven twenty in Central Indiana we are going to mark the change of season from Winter (my least favorite) to Spring (my most favorite). I have been long looking forward to the gloomy gray skies filled with biting winds and bone-chilling cold being replaced by blue skies filled with singing birds, and some renewing rains and sunshine.
I like counting down toward Springtime, because I KNOW my time of struggling will be at an end…soon.
Unlike the seasons of a calendar year our seasons of testing and trials do not usually come with a fixed end date to be marked on our calender of events. In fact, while we are enduring the various pains of such a season of gloominess, it may actually seem as if we will never emerge from it. Yet, God’s Word has various places of encouragement for us in these times. God will never leave us or forsake us. He loves us; seeks only our betterment as His children. God allows us to undergo suffering from time to time so that we might more readily identify what Jesus Christ did to deliver us from our sins.
Spring IS coming; Winter WILL end.
Here is an update from Marty & Val Silverberg who are missionaries in the Bronx. There have been numerous postings on little Baby Jonah who has really had quite a struggle physically all his 4 little months of life. You may find out more about his story by simply searching “Baby Jonah prayer” on this site or just search it on the web.
Dear Praying Family,
There is little change in Jonah’s condition.
Sepsis infection is improving a little.
Another serious situation in which Jonah is not
able to digest nutrients even after surgery and w/ a g tube for feeding.
Your continued prayers are very much appreciated.
Thank you again.
In Christ’s Love,
Marty for Val
Please join us in continuing to pray for Jonah’s many physical needs and the Silverberg family as a whole.
