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.”

I live 30 minutes from D.C. and this week is when the cherry blossom trees have peaked and are demonstrating their beauty. “Each year, the National Cherry Blossom Festival marks the beginning of spring in the nation’s capital and attracts more than 1.5 million people to the District. At the heart of the festival is the blooming of 3,000 cherry blossom trees along the Tidal Basin. It’s amazing that blossoming trees can attract so many people from around the world.

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.

Today, my prayer for you is that the seemingly dead places in your life would be brought back to life. Maybe it is a relationship, forgotten ministry, broken dreams, or maybe you’ve felt lost and are unsure of the next steps. God has a plan for your life and the thing He specializes in is prophesying to dry bones. Dry bones can live again.

      I so enjoy these daily devotions. I clicked on the link beside the comment about the Cherry blossoms in Washington. It was too funny. It took me to Shazam comic movie information.

      • Oh my goodness, sorry about that! Haha, I’ll have to check on the link and change it! Thanks for letting me know.
