Father God, I thank You and love You so much for Your faithfulness to me. It is this faithfulness that set the Resurrection of Jesus in place before the foundation of the world. Because the lamb was slain, the sins of the entire world were pardoned and we have free access to You. For this my soul rejoices.
Thank you God for a new season of Spring. The winter is past, over and gone. The flowers and trees are blooming to indicate rejuvenation, renewal, and regrowth.
I give glory to you Father God that the ecological and biological indicators of spring are like clockwork reminding us that You have set parameters and markers in the earth for us.
Thank you Father that as You usher in the cleansing rains of spring it reminds us of the cleansing blood of Jesus.
Praise to You for the light of spring that energizes new plantings just as the light of the Word illuminates believers and the returning leaves of the trees shelter us from the heat as You shelter us in the secret place.
I honor You God as I observe the animals shedding their winter coats, the green grass dressing and carpeting the ground, the birds splitting the air with their wings and singing melodies of praise as a gentle expression of Your creative power and the authority that You have given to the body of Christ.
Thank you for prompting us through nature that new birth and rebirth always comes and is a part of the earth’s lifecycle. And as believers keep springing and moving forward, all of our todays and yesterdays will forever be in our past with a future of second chances, and hope springing eternal. That is mighty good news.
Always in Jesus’ name, Amen.
