Why has this grass gone to seed so early. Early July
This is a type of life being over for this crop of grass and new life will come next year.
We want to bring people into maturity in Christ. But we don't want our life to end early. At least most people don't. We would like to live a full life in Christ. What would bring our life to an early end spiritually? When we give up hope. In Christ there is hope when all looks hopeless. There is hope in the promise when there is no hope in the possible.
Abraham hoped for a son when he was 100 and his wife was 90.
Romans 4:17,18 "(as it is written, “A father of many nations have I made you”) in the presence of Him whom he believed, even God, who gives life to the dead and calls into being that which does not exist. 18 In hope against hope he believed, so that he might become a father of many nations according to that which had been spoken, “So shall your descendants be.”
Father, I hope in You and what You have promised me. Thank you for your goodness, mercy and patience.
