A fresh new journey
Look closely, look inside my prophetic art piece. What do you see?
Ever wonder why God created seasons? In the winter the days are short and cold. But, then comes spring with longer sunny days. Every year spring follows winter. Birds sing cheerful songs as they feed their young. Green leaves fill branches that were once bare. The fragrant scent of flowers permeates the air again.
How was last year for you? It has been a tough winter kind of year for me. I experienced a stretching beyond what I thought I could stand. But I am standing. I reached out to Jesus, and He held my hand and drew me closer. I am discovering how good and faithful He is to me. In the midst of sadness, Jesus found me and revived me over and over again. I discover fresh joy every time He wipes away my tears. God has brought good friends to reach out to console me. Winter has passed. I am becoming confident in God’s love. I am moving into spring, a time of new beginnings. I am free and happy.
Spring is a time of renewal, a time to remember that God is good. He takes what is dead and brings it to life, every year after winter, again and again.
God loves me. He loves you too. I know that He is trustworthy, faithful, and true. Jesus rose from the dead in the spring time. You can know rebirth in Him too.
I encourage you to put your faith in Jesus. Ask Him to come a little closer. Believe He is good every day, every moment, and into eternity. He is the God of new beginnings!
Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15: 13 NASB).
