Shackled by the cold
Hearts callously unaware
Outside God’s embrace
It snowed in Mississippi yesterday, which it rarely does. I got outside and took some photos, but had to bundle up due to the extreme cold. When I uploaded this photo of these Nandina berries encapsulated by a frigid shell, it reminded me of the coldness of a heart separated from the warmth of God.
Of souls shackled in sin’s callous grip from rejecting Christ.
God loves everyone, but we must choose whether to embrace Him. It is when we draw near to God that He responds by drawing near to us. The light of His presence brings warmth; His embrace ushers in the healing our cold hearts so desperately need.
“Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.”
