The Warmth of God's Love

During the winter months when it is cold and gets dark earlier, drinking hot cider or hot chocolate, wrapping up in a warm blanket, and sitting by a fire are some of the little comforts the cold weather allows us to enjoy. The hot water in the shower or bath, a warm hand holding your cold hand, the warmth from a pet when it lays on your lap. The winter weather reminds us of the great comfort and peace warmth brings when we are cold.

Warmth brings our anxiety down, relaxes our body and mind, and comforts our heart and soul. Nothing is without a reason, God allows us to experience these joys to remind us of the complete comfort and peace He gives through His love. The warmth of God's touch on our life is what allows us keep living with joy in our heart.

God doesn't just watch over us, He is here with us and He comforts us. Just as a mother comforts her baby, God knows we are weak, in desperate need of love and care, and He, being our Father, provides that. God is love! "Beloved, let us love one another, for love is of God; and everyone who loves is born of God and knows God. He who does not love does not know God, for God is love." (1 John 4:7-8). The warmth of God's love doesn't just cover us in the winter season, it covers us 365 days every year. Just as the warmth of the sun when it shines on your face or body during the summer, God's love warmly shines on us. In sunny times and chilly, whether we are happy or sad,
