The Weirdness of This Spring

When we look at the chaos around us, even the strange weather, we question where God is in all of this living. This weekend we’re expecting another snow, and many people are grumbling and wishing winter didn’t even exist. Yet, He’s there…He’s orchestrating all to our good.

Have you had a bumpy week? Does all seem out of order? Trust Him today to direct even the small things in your life.

What small things have you worried about this week but you saw God’s direct hand in dealing with them?  Comment below.

Spring Is for Renewal

It’s amazing how fast time starts to fly the older you get. I found myself looking up at the calendar in shock this year. Can you believe it’s almost the end of April already? And Spring has come, bringing with it freshness and renewal with each new day.2016-04-23 15.13.08

Renewal. It’s the perfect word to use for Spring.

All the renewal of life around us is breathtaking. From the tiniest bunny we saw last night in my neighbor’s yard to the flowers on the trees, it all points me back to God’s love and care.

But all this Spring stuff also reminds me how important it is to be renewed inside. God says it best in the Bible:

2 Cor. 4:16 …but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day.

I have a renewed mind with the fresh spring breezes and the scent of lilac and cherry blossoms in the air. It opens all kinds of possibilities, one of which is Book 3 of my series: brewing in my mind even right now.

Thank you, Lord, for renewing us every day…and for using the spring to remind us that you can make all things fresh, inside and out.

Do you feel renewed this spring?
