A Peak At Spring Time


I couldn’t wait to take a peak.
I pushed back the mulch and sure
enough, there they were. Daffodil
bulbs I planted in the fall had forced
through winter’s frozen ground.
Once again I was seeing
evidence of the miracle of Spring time.

I can’t help but think of the parallel in our lives. Winter seasons of our lives,
threaten our faith and endurance. We wonder if the joy of springtime will come
again? Will we be able to rise up and leave winters past behind us?

There is One who promises that we can endure. We can pass that test.
We can rise up again and experience new beginnings that God promises for
those who love Him.

For those who believe, our hope lies in the God and Father of our LORD
Jesus Christ, and in His Promised Presence. He has promised He will never
leave nor forsake.

When sickness, death and loss shake our world; when doubts and fears raise
their ugly heads; when the battlefield of our heart tempts us to question when
we should trust, we need to remember the Lord is near.  He doesn’t leave us
alone to fight our battles. He gets down in the trenches of our troubled hearts
when we can no longer fight for ourselves. He fights for us and gives strength
to climb out of the pit and teaches us to embrace rekindled hope and the new
beginnings God promises.

The same God who planted seeds of new growth in the beginning, (Genesis 1)
also plants new seeds of hope in hearts that make room for Jesus.

May hope spring up in our hearts today, as we wait for the miracle of spring.

Winter is past, and the rains are over and gone. Flowers are springing up,
and the season of singing has come. 
 Song of Songs sv. 2:11,12 NLT

  1. Thank you for the sweet reminder of spring – almost here! Although I’m scraping ice before I leave for work today . . . it helps to see this beautiful “picture you wrote” — good one, Glenda!

  2. You know me Verna. I’m originally a flat-lander from Alabama. I always try and rush spring time, but usually to no avail…but looks like we might have an early spring anyway..even with the ice you’re having. Won’t last long, cause spring is just around the corner.

  6. Cindy, Sometimes words aren’t enough to express our adoration of the One we love. So grateful for the hope within us and the love for the family of the Body of Christ. Now how can you love someone you’ve never seen….because of the anchor of hope He placed within us. And the love we have for sisters like you we’ve yet to meet. Happy Spring back to you and may you have a blessed celebration of Easter.

You know where I’ve been this ‘winter’ physically and how it affects our spirit. I know I will rise out of the icey pit like that daffodil, for hench cometh Spring (Christ)‼️ Love You Dear Friend❤️
