Well groundhog day was yesterday and a couple of the Canadian groundhogs didn’t see their shadow, which means…EARLY SPRING!!!!!!!!
I’ve been waiting for Spring for awhile. As you can see from the title pic, my nails were even longing for spring, causing me to paint them in my favs… mint green & pale yellow. I’m currently wearing a peach hoodie. Pastels are calling my name at all hours of the day. But more importantly than dreaming about pastel nail colours & clothing, my heart is aching for Spring.
I ain’t no winter girl. I mean, snow’s alright and I really, truly, do love Christmas. But that’s about it. I love daylight & I love being warm. Winter lacks both of those. I like A LOT of people, find more joy in the sun than in the grey sky. Last Winter it was pretty bad, I was going through some definite sadness in my spirit. Thankfully, this Winter I haven’t been down, but I still feel it. The ‘it’ being those winter blues.
Today the sun was shining magnificently. I found myself at Dallas Road with my Bible & prayer journal. As I listened to Hillsong’s ‘Take Heart’ and stared off into the sky, I was reminded that Spring is truly just around the corner. If you’ve been having a dark winter, if you’ve been going through crap, if you feel like there is no Hope… TAKE HEART…Spring is coming, heck, you heart can enter into Spring today…
A couple days ago I was looking for quotes on Spring and I stumbled upon this…
"Wrong will be right, when Aslan comes in sight,
At the sound of his roar, sorrows will be no more,
When he bares his teeth, winter meets its death,
And when he shakes his mane, we shall have spring again.” -The Lion, The Witch & The Wardrobe
There is victory in JESUS. There is freedom in JESUS. There is healing in JESUS. There are new starts in JESUS. Your heart doesn’t have to live in Winter a second longer. Whatever you are facing, our mighty Lord has overcome it all. Just a single breath of from his mouth melts every single icicle in your way.
“In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” -John 16:33
Take heart, take heart, take heart…JESUS HAS OVERCOME.
love you to the moon & back,
