This Is His Time

This is His time, purposed long ago.
When your ears are fully opened,
and second causes fade;

 you will see God in everything,
and give Him all your praise. 

This is His time, His purpose and plan.
When your heart is fully open,
His sovereign will embraced;
You will see God in everything
and give Him all your praise.

This is your time, to live, laugh and love.
When your eyes are fully opened,
to look upon His face;
you will see God in everything
and give Him all your praise.

He has made everything beautiful in its time. Ecclesiastes 3:11 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Embrace the Season

IMG_1583.jpg.irisheartofhope
We don’t have to leave our home
these  days for the world’s bad
news to come  crashing down
upon us. Too much information
crowds our souls as we search

the internet, scan the news or browse Facebook.

Sometimes we just need to stop, pull back, and take a break from the world.
The best way I know of getting away from it all is to get up early and watch
a new day dawn, especially at springtime.
 Signs of new growth abound and
soon I’m down on my knees digging in the soil, pulling weeds, 
transplanting
old plants, adding new ones.

In the same way, Spring can ring eternal in our hearts when we take time to
walk through the Word of God and embrace the promises found there. Eternal
truths never lose their power to renew and refresh our minds. Give comfort
when we grieve a loss; and cause new hope to arise in our hearts during times
of stormy trials and winds of adversity.

There’s a hope rooted
down deep . . .
Deep in the soil of God’s love.
Winds of adversity
test it . . .
Stormy trials try

to possess it.
But hope is
rooted down deep
in the soil of
God’s love.  

There’s a hope springing up
with shoots of

new growth.
Nothing can stop it…
Evil can’t thwart it.
Hope always
thrusts through

hardened soil,
softened by Spring’s rain.
Eternal hope . . .

Everlasting love.

Anchor of my soul,
birthed and
born again. (John 3:3-17)

Eternal Seed implanted . . .
catch the wind of the Spirit.
New life . . .
spring forth.

Awaken winter’s dead.
Heavenly showers fall—
rain flowers
upon my soul.

This hope does not disappoint, because the love of God has been poured out
within our hearts through the Holy Spirit who was given to us. Romans 5:5

He Will Be Faithful

Faithful to complete it.

A missing petal reveals room for
new growth.



The truth is, every follower of Jesus is a work in progress. We all have 
areas in our lives that need the grace of God to change us into the image of the One who gave His life for us.

Rest assured, God will not abandon the
work of His hands.
He will be faithful to complete the good work 
He started in you.

I am certain that God, who began the
good work 
within you, 
will continue His work until it is
 
finally finished
on the day when Christ Jesus returns. 
Philippians 1:6 NLT
