Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. Psalm 27:14 NIV
March is here! We have waited patiently to welcome this day! Soon, we will be nourished by the warmth of the sun and welcome the season we have been missing. We will witness growth from the wait of winter and recognize we are stronger than before.
God grows us in the timing of His will. But during times of wonder, we often become impatient as we wait for better days to come. We need to be reminded God readies us for the plans He has for our days. Even in our weariness, He is working for the good. He loves us!
God DOES have a plan for our lives. He takes time to nurture the heart of our love. He teaches to appreciate what waits to be discovered and helps us learn how to trust. Spring allows us to witness everything new and be led closer to the Savior. It provides meaningful moments to reflect on the cross and experience the sacrifice of Jesus. It opens our hearts for the offering of His love.
God knows how to plant HOPE in our hearts. When the timing is right, He strengthens the love of our faithfulness. He reminds us what we live will make us stronger. He handles our days and leads us through dreary days of wonder. And as we continue to be patient, He blesses us. He helps us focus on the love of our gratefulness, instead of dwelling in doubt.
God will set the stage to remind us what is good. He will provide glimpses of what’s ahead and remind us who handles our days. He is working to renew and restore us. We must welcome what He provides and never forget to TRUST. Spring is coming SOON! We have been faithful in days of dread. Better days are coming! God WILL provide everything we need. We must believe He will always take care of us.
Dear God, thank you for moments to remember we are being grown by You. Forgive us when we become impatient when You ask us to wait. Grow our faith as we prepare our hearts to feel the power of Your strength. Fill us with the gifts of Your greatness, so we will understand how it feels to be loved by YOU. Thank you for giving us peace in Your presence. Thank you for Jesus and the power of Your plan for our lives. We will put our trust in You and leave doubt behind. We will embrace this beautiful new month and give You the glory while we wait for spring to arrive. Thank you, Lord. Amen
