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 provides opportunities to embrace the newness of life, remember the sacrifice of Christ and consider what Jesus did on the cross for each one of us. It reminds us why HE is deserving of ALL of our love.
God helps us examine our lives. When we need to be renewed, He shows how to remove 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 BLOOM in our love for 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 our lives and make sure we never 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 helps us embrace the newness of life and cultivate a spirit of HOPE. Thank you for ALL You provide! Renew our hearts as we TRUST in You and gratefully WELCOME this season. Help us focus on what is GOOD and leave worry behind. We will become stronger because of YOU. GROW us in gratitude, so we will BLOOM in the fullness of Your love and always find PEACE where we are planted. Thank you, Lord! Amen
