I’ve awaken again during the night for the rain thats drip-drip-dripping outside. The Gauteng weather comes quickly, spills over our earth, and moves on again.
Ever since living in this part of South-Africa, I’ve come to love this time of the year. After traveling for a week my return home was an explosion of the color green, with a dark and heavy sky. Heavy from the promise of rain, and also heavy from so many other promises.
In 5 days, everything has changed. The landscape has turned into a tropical paradise. I find myself amazed with how, in a blink of an eye….everything is new.
I find God speaking to me in these times. Like the visual change into lush landscape, also shows whats happening spiritually.
All around me I can see how the fresh green is starting to bud in the people I love, and how its taking new form in our lives. And I’m reminded to what CS Lewis said.
“Day to day nothing changes, but looking back nothing stays the same”
