Spring WILL Come!

Yesterday snowflakes were softly falling and it was looking more like a December winter wonderland outside than an almost-spring day, especially considering I’m in the south. My friends and I are so ready for spring to come–it’s just 3 weeks away, but when you see all the snow you wonder if it will ever get here. And I was wondering just that when I saw this quote on Pinterest. So if you, too, have been wondering if spring will ever come, it will! Maybe not as soon as we’d like, but it definitely will!

He dispatches His Word, and the thaw begins; at His command, the spring winds blow, gently stirring the waters back to life.  PSALM 147:18

Living Life with a Passion

ncRWqtenm

God gives us different passions so everything He wants done in the world will get done.

RICK WARREN, pastor and author, from Daily Hope with Rick Warren

Rick Warren also writes, “God is a passionate God….As you grow closer to Him, He’ll give you a passion for something He cares about deeply so you can be a spokesperson for Him in the world. It may be a passion about a problem, a purpose, a principle, or a group of people. Whatever it is, you’ll feel compelled to speak up about it and do what you can to make a difference.”

What has God given you a passion for?

A New Thing

ncPottedPansiesnm

I’m so excited spring is here! After this especially cold winter, I’m looking forward to brighter, longer, warmer days with flowers blooming and birds chirping!

I’ve always loved springtime because it’s a time of fresh, new beginnings. Are you ready for something new? God delights in doing fresh new things in our lives. Ask Him to show you what “new thing” He has for you!

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past.

See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?

I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
