All Things New

Psalm 19:1, “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handiwork.”

Revelation 21:5, And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.”

Everywhere we look we see the glory of God. One thing that I love about springtime is the newness of life that encompasses us. One month ago there were only dry, seemingly dead, sticks in the ground. Now, those dry sticks are green buds and flowering trees.

We are entering a new season in our lives. I have always attributed natural phenomenon’s with spiritual implications; even Jesus spoke in parables about natural things to help us understand our lives.

There may be a situation in your life that is dry and seemingly dead. However, God is the one who can breathe life into dry bones. Your time of brokenness will not last forever, there is a new season — new life.

Go outside and look around — the message of life after death is everywhere.

      Sis Dodie, wow — God is so wonderful. I love how He confirms His word to us over and over again, giving us the calm assurance that He knows what we need. Thank you for sharing.
