This week I have watched with awe as the world begins to change all around me. What was bare ground has now become green. Flowering bushes and trees that were laid bare all winter are now blossoming everywhere. As I walked out to my mailbox I saw a carpet of purple petals as though they were a carpet for me to walk on. The world is beginning to break forth from dormancy of winter and I am so thankful! I could just dance among even the little blooming weeds in my yard, for every bit of color is a testimony of God’s faithfulness.
Break forth into joy Oh my soul! Break out the tambourines and rejoice! Break out the shovel and the hoe and the fertilizer! It’s time to rejoice in what God is doing in your life. It’s time to break up the fallow ground because God is about to produce in you a bountiful crop of His blessings and favor! His fruit is sure to produce in your life as you abide in Him.
Don’t worry about the bare ground you may still see. God’s promise is there just below the surface. He will produce things in your life for His glory at just the right time. You can break out in song because He is bound to break out blossoms in your life. You are His. His timing is perfect. Your life is hidden in Him.
Oh beloved, watch as God breaks forth in your life! You may be feeling the effects of a harsh winter of pain or sorrow, but God is about to do something new in your life! As the SON shines on your heart you will blossom no matter what!
God loves you and He’s for you. That’s enough to give you joy in the waiting and anticipation in His promises! Live with an eye to what God is going to do as you live in the Light of His glory and grace!
Shout for joy to the LORD, all the earth, break out into jubilant song with music
But now, this is what the LORD says– he who created you, Jacob, he who formed you, Israel: “Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have summoned you by name; you are mine.”
