Galatians 6:9
“And let us not loose heart in doing good, for in due time we shall reap if we do not grow weary.”

The sound of a whistling kettle on the stove means it’s time for a cup of tea, and there’s nothing quite like a mug full of hot spicy tea on a cold winter day.

As I drop my tea bag into my cup of steaming hot water I realize how I can relate to the tea bag. The tea cannot be enjoyed before it has been soaked in hot water.

While it’s dry, inside the bag it’s practically useless, or in the least, something special that hasn’t yet begun to fulfill its purpose.

I like comfort. I enjoy smooth days with sunny skies, yet as I’m growing I’ve come to realize that sometimes my Lord comes to me through the rain clouds. Through tough days I seem to think something’s wrong, and this couldn’t be God’s plan for me. Yet, sometimes hot water is required.

I’m just so thankful for the string on the end of my bag because I know He’s holding onto it and knows when it’s time, and the tea is ready.
