In recent week’s I’ve been in awe of the changes as Spring has come forth. From one day to the next, flowers bloom, trees begin to bud, blossoms appear on trees, then the blossoms give way to the fresh green color of new leaves. It’s been amazing to watch the trees and see how quickly they change from day to day!
Changing also has been the weather, warm and sunny one day, then chilly and damp the next. Yet through all the changes of weather, God’s world remains constant around us, with the coming and going of seasons, and night always turning into day.
I find comfort in the changing, yet steady rhythm of God’s world.
Like the weather, life brings plenty of changes. We can be walking on sunshine one day, blown around the next, and sometimes face dark, stormy days. Yet through it all, God’s ways remain constant. The ebb and flow of life continues, and God’s promises are still true.
Just as God is there to bring newness of life and beauty in the Spring, He does the same with us as we go through changes in our lives.
It is during the changes in our lives that God’s presence is most apparent, bringing forth newness and beauty with each passing day.
Praise be to God!
