In case you missed my review yesterday~
this is my devotional I have picked for the summer. I absolutely love it!
Today I plan to work in the garden getting the yard ready for Easter. As I am reading this morning's devotion I am reading about spring bulbs. The birds are singing and it is a beautiful morning here at Farming on Faith.
In my devotion~ I am reading about those ugly little spring bulbs we place in the dirt in the Autumn. We cover them with dirt and they endure the long cold winter under that frozen ground. As Spring unveils herself those little ugly bulbs begin to peek through the dirt and before we know it our beautiful tulips, daffodils and crocus come blazing in all their glory. They make our world a better place.
That is how we feel sometimes~ isn't it so? This year has been much like that in my life. It has been a long cold hard winter in more ways than one. Yet ~ when we just yield to the Master Gardener ~He knows best and we will come forth shining as gold. It is the yielding to His plan that is the hard part. Surviving without getting bitter and angry when the harshness and coldness come to creep into our very souls.
I am so thankful on this beautiful Spring Tuesday that God does tend to us well~ he nourishes us~ sends us help in the time of trouble. He gives us rest and restoration. He gives us mercy and grace when we struggle at our feeble attempts to yield. He gives us our joy when we feel lifeless. He gives us hope in His promises. Now that is reason enough to celebrate on this beautiful Spring morning.
