From Friday, March 26, 2021.
I love this time of year. Suddenly everything is starting to bloom. There are pink-blossomed trees all over town. The Crocus are up. Daffodils are proudly showing off their vibrant colors. My Hellebores have been blooming for 2 months already.
Isaiah 35:1,2 "The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy..."
I love that God has given us seasons and I especially love Spring. It's getting darker later and later. Plants begin blooming. Baby animals are born. Naked trees begin budding. The earth begins to warm.
God desires to show us His love through the beauty of nature; His creation.
I was thanking God for another day this morning and this verse came to mind:
Lamentations 3:22-23 ESV "The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; His mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness."
His mercies are new every morning! What a wonderful thought. What a wonderful promises.
You can't outdo God's mercy. You can't mess up enough where He no longer has mercy for you. Lean into that promise. What ever happened yesterday, let it go. Today is a new day and His mercies are new for you right now. Thank Him for such a precious gift. Acknowledge Him and His great love for you.
Hosea 6:3 "Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.”
May God richly bless you, guard and protect you. And remember: Jesus is coming soon!
