Writing for ‘Cultivating’ magazine this Summer on the theme of “fullness” gave me a chance in the midst of major changes to be refilled with expectation of good. Despite all the unusual things that have happened in 2020 thus far, the seasons of life are unrelenting. In life or death and everything in between, the cycles of human existence course on whether we are ready or not, and can leave us dry and barren. The faithful God of Creation built promises into His redemptive plan for mankind, which when held in faith, give power that causes our dry places to bloom again and like a well-watered garden, welcome others into fullness. May you have such an encounter as you read and reflect.
