For as the earth bursts with spring wildflowers, and as a garden cascades with blossoms, so the Master, God, brings righteousness into full bloom and puts praise on display before the nations. (Isaiah 61:11 MSG)
After a long, dark and cold Winter, most – if not all – of us are looking forward to Spring, especially here in Canada. I’m constantly looking for signs of life at this time of year. Easter, which falls around Spring every year, is a wonderful reminder of that renewal that we all crave and need. Today, I came across a beautiful quote by Martin Luther. It says, “Our Lord has written the promise of resurrection, not in books alone, but in every leaf in springtime.” As we begin to see signs of life around us this season, may we be encouraged in knowing that it’s God’s will to breathe new life into every one of us, resurrecting us with His Son. May we rise again after a long, dark and cold season of tests and trials.
