Springtime Abounding with His Life

Daughter, behold the season of the singing return of birds has come, awake sleepy crocus and iris. Bouncing  life in the new profusion of baby calves. Meadow grasses greening as they unbend from snow’s winter weight. My Son died yet arose victorious to give you new life, His robe of righteousness, HOPE

You have but to ask, His forgiveness freeing, His mercies new every dawn, His freedom truly liberates all captives who come.COME.

Our God is giving us the most important, single word invitation we might even get in our lifetime. COME. Included in that invitation are forgiveness, refreshment, being made new and clean and whole, being set free from sin and liberated to serve Him who is able.

Prayer: Dear Father in heaven – the earth is alive with new life and springtime bursting forth. You know my forgiven heart, draw me unto you and we shall run together! I will extol your love more than wine! Thank you barely begins to address my exultation. Thank you that you sent Jesus to be our sacrifice. We chose to do things which broke your heart and are standing in the need of your forgiveness. Help us to learn each day more of what this terrible and wonderful sacrifice cost you, Father and your Son. AMEN

The flowers appear on the earth; The time of singing has come, And the voice of the turtledove Is heard in our land. (NKJV)

[ Put on Christ ] And do this, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep; for now our salvation is nearer than when we first believed. (NKJV)

Awake to righteousness, and do not sin; for some do not have the knowledge of God. I speak this to your shame. (NKJV)

I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, And as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. (NKJV)

[ An Invitation to Abundant Life ] “Ho! Everyone who thirsts, Come to the waters; And you who have no money, Come, buy and eat. Yes, come, buy wine and milk Without money and without price. (NKJV)
