HBO’s hit show, Game of Thrones has me thinking about summer. The mantra for House Stark (a Game of Thrones family) is “Winter is Coming”. The mantra that is associated with that house is bold and strong and even intimidating. What thoughts are conjured up when you think of summer?
I think of the lounging outdoors, hikes and sports. I think of pool parties, and waterslides. I think of barbecues, and family picnics. I think of just pure unadulterated fun. For me, summer is just the most wonderful time of the year. This summer is especially meaningful to us DC Metro area residents, because, we experienced the most rigid winter we possibly have ever experienced. This winter was so rigid, the season of spring was for the most part nonexistent, we almost skipped passed it, and summer is coming.
Summer is coming represents so much life and happiness and fun. It also represents beginning anew again. Out of the drudgery of winter and into the bliss of warm summer. Summer’s beginning is analogous to the beginnings of new adventures that God has in store for us. New adventures that we long for after being cooped up all winter long. So, I suppose it will be easier to trust God now right? After all you’ve been really good at trusting him through all the previous seasons. So in this new season, this summer I invite you to trust God to inspire you through this season of warmth. Trust God to give you the strength you need to face the day as you cling to the long hot days and long warm nights. Trust God and decipher His voice in this season of good times. God is always calling us to be in partnership with him.
Summer is coming and it will be joyous.
Summer is coming think happy thoughts
Summer is coming and it is total bliss
Summer is coming.
