Officially spring is only nine days away. March winds are blowing, Easter dresses are showing up in stores. Its awakening time…
Butterflies are flitting in and out, around here things are yellow with pollen, and you can feel the earth waking up once again. New life.
The Giver of life is inspiring creation once again to renew. As His beloved it is always spring in our hearts. New life ours each day – now and forever. “The days of the blameless are known to the Lord, and their inheritance will endure forever.” (Psalm 37:18 NIV)
Blameless? Only because of a Savior who took all my blame. Now I can dance free as though every day were the first day of spring. Good news.
“Be exalted, O God, above the heavens; let Your glory be over all the earth…For great is Your love, reaching to the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches to the skies.” (Psalm 57:5, 10 NIV) As spring’s green leaves form on the trees and soft flowers wave in the wind look to the heavens, give thanks for great is His love for those who love Him.
All inspiration for our art, music, words rises out of creation.
The hope of spring is not in what we can see, it is in the faithfulness of the one who is the Maker of the fertile ground and fresh air. Yet in this world we see the hard as well – illness, broken hearts, death. But it won’t always be so. Next time a day seems overwhelming or even just ordinary – look at the intricacy of an insect, feel the wonder of warm sunshine, touch the hand of loved one.
The one who cares enough to give wings to a dragonfly, a purr to a kitten, and down to ducklings – cares even more for each of your moments. And so we have endurance for the hard days and the easy ones “inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.” (1Thessalonians 1:3 NIV)
Inspired…by hope…in the One who is true and faithful.
