I have accepted a challenge to write for 31 days in October on a subject of my choosing. This will be interesting since I’ve not written on my blog at all since May of this year. There are seasons in my life that demand more of my attention. Perhaps this is the season for my blog.
I’ve chosen the topic of Roses Among The Thorns.
Not wanting to be negative yet facing the fact that in this world we shall have tribulations, I want to know how to look for the roses along the path. That will be my quest during this 31 days of writing.
My first thought is the encouragement I receive from Jesus’ very own words about tribulations:
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” — John 16:33
So let us take heart! The Overcomer is with us on the journey. He is the Rose among the thorns. And when we look for Him, we will find Him!
I hope you will join me on my October journey, that together we will discover roses in all shades and descriptions.
Won’t you come along? I’d enjoy the company.
