But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be glory both now and forever! Amen. 2 Peter 3:18 NIV
God lovingly tends the gardens of our lives and prepares us to bloom. He chooses where we will be planted and grows us by the power of His love. He is the Maker of EVERY living thing! God provides what we need to be grown by mercy and grace. He readies us to welcome Jesus.
Spring allows us to embrace the newness of life and remember the sacrifice of Christ. As we wait for better days to come, God reminds us to be patient. He humbles our hearts and helps us remember what Jesus did on the cross. He reminds us why our Savior is deserving of our love.
When we need to be renewed, God helps us examine our lives. He takes away the weeds, so we will grow in His garden of greatness and cultivate a peaceful heart of praise. He helps us learn to be faithful and allows us to bloom in the beauty of Christ.
God knows what He’s doing! He will arm us with everything we need and allow us to flourish when the timing is right. He will pour peace in our hearts and help us GROW as we learn to TRUST in Him. He is God! He will tend to the garden of His greatness and make sure we don’t forget how lucky we are to be grown by Him. He will help us “BLOOM WHERE WE ARE PLANTED"
Dear God, Thank you for Your presence. Forgive us when our hearts become hardened in layers of doubt and we forget who’s in charge of our days. YOU are the One who readies us to flourish, bloom and GROW. Thank you for spring! It welcomes the newness of life and cultivates a spirit of HOPE. Thank you for ALL You provide! Renew our hearts as we TRUST in You and gratefully WELCOME this beautiful season. Help us focus on what is GOOD and leave the past behind. What we’ve learned in patience has made us stronger because of YOU. Prepare us to GROW in gratitude, so we will BLOOM in the faithfulness of Your love and always find PEACE where planted. Thank you, Lord!
