Isaiah 40:31 Those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles. they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
It is official – Snowfall records were set in Minnesota for the most snow received in February, EVER! Governor Walz declared a State of Emergency in Steele and Freeborn Counties last night. Heavy snow and winds have reportedly stranded motorists in the area. The Minnesota National Guard is being activated to assist with search and rescue operations. Armories in Albert Lea and Owatonna are being opened to serve as shelters. Today we are under a blizzard warning, closing churches throughout the area. Winters in Minnesota are long. It is easy to fall into depression and loose hope.
Where does your hope come from? Placing our hope in the Lord makes us strong. Hope gives us the desire to continue moving forward, even when the roads are closed.
May God grant you strength to endure the winter seasons in your life. Hold on, because spring is just around the corner!
