The Inevitability of Spring...

The American Robin...
a sure sign of Spring.
The other day I went for a walk and despite the cool 37 degree temperature, it was a beautiful Michigan day! The sun was shining, the sky was bright blue. With every squirrel I passed and with every robin I heard, I sensed that a change was coming. I filled my lungs with the cold, crisp air and tasted spring. Even though there were still some pathetic mounds of snow unwilling to relinquish their place on the ground, even though the trees were still bleak and bare, even though the grass was not yet green...I know for sure that one day, spring will make her appearance. On that we can depend. Nothing can stop it. One day, the snow will be gone, the trees will be covered with leaves, flowers will bloom, the grass will be green....and spring will be here. Just like God's promises to us, these things will happen.
What promises has God made to you as you faithfully serve in ministry? Like the inevitabiliy of spring, one day, He will bring them to pass. On that we can depend.

  1. Even though Spring seems to be here on Saturday we experienced a downpour of hail followed by gusty winds followed by clear blue skies and then another episode of rain. All in one day! Enjoy!
