Is the grass always so green?

Is the sky always so blue?

Are the birds singing more than usual?

Does the wind always blow through the trees so softly?

These are the questions I ask myself every Spring and the answers are always the same.

Oh yes! The grass is greener, the sky is bluer, and the birdsong and breezes are lovelier than ever.

I hope I never greet Spring with indifference.

The beautiful spring came, and when nature resumes her loveliness, the human soul is apt to revive also. -Harriet Ann Jacobs

A Prayer for our World*

Dear God,

It’s Your name that is honored from generation to generation. You alone are worthy of all glory and praise.

And You are not shocked by the state of the world right now. Your ways are not our ways, and You are not at a loss about what to do. Nothing is impossible for You.

So today, we are proclaiming that You will be glorified through this pandemic and Your name will be known and praised throughout the earth.

Pierce the darkness with Your light. Shine brighter than the fear of death, economic ruin, or a long quarantine.

When we look back on this moment in history, would we be filled with joy as we remember the revival, hope, and peace that came out of this season.

Continue to draw this hurting world back to You.

a lovelier spring

In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth. Hosea 6:3

*(March 27, 2020; YouVersion)
