the one of new mantras…

God, you’re not done. 

I can see the promise
I can see the future
You’re the God of seasons
I’m just in the winter
If all I know of harvest
Is that it’s worth my patience
Then if you’re not done working
God, I’m not done waiting
Cause you can see the promise
Even in the winter
Cause you’re the God of greatness
Even in a manger
For all I know of seasons
Is that you take your time
You could have saved us in a second
Instead you sent a child

Though the winter is long even richer
The harvest it brings
Though my waiting prolongs even greater
Your promise for me like a seed
I believe that my season will come

Like the frost on a rose
Winter comes for us all
Oh, how nature acquaints us 
With the nature of patience
Like a seed in the snow
I’ve been buried to grow
For your promise is loyal
From seed to sequoia

– Seasons, There is more – Hillsong Worship Live

The first time I listened to this song (yesterday :)) something about it stayed with me. Initially, I couldn’t hear the lyrics at all! Lol! You know how images can be blurry, well the sound was all blurred up save for the word ‘sequoia’.  Yet even with the blur, it just sounded so pretty to me. Lol! How can sound sound pretty? i dunno

Then Google happened and I found the lyrics and now I’m even more into it. Lol! Weird how on some cognitive (bwahaha! Yes I used that word) level you can connect to something without fully understanding it.

This is now on my new playlist… Also, I went and looked up sequoia – issa tree. A humongous tree that doesn’t look like it could have come from a seed. It looks like it just shot down from heaven in a magnificent explosive boom! You know, I think the title should have been From seed to sequoia – but that doesn’t sound very spiritual… just pretty but not spiritual!

Ps: I moved the verses around.. 🙂 What?! You post the correct flow on your blog if you want… 🙂

Pps: Sylvia Baguma, if you are reading this… My dedication to you <3. This song reminds me of when you introduced me to the other Shane and Shane song ft John Piper. Come out of hiding, my girl. My soul is missing you!

for all of us who have had a difficult start to 2018, God is not done! His promise is loyal, from seed to sequoia.
