New Year, New Life in Christ…

Uncategorized No Comments »

Every year begins with new hopes, new goals, new vision, yet what often happens, expectations go unmet, disappointments set in, and discouragement takes root.

Who are we expecting to receive from, and what is it we are hoping?

What are we planning for! Who will help us, guide us and hold us accountable?

What do we seriously contemplate our selves to be doing this year, for ourselves, for others, but most importantly, for the Lord?

My expectation alone, is of Him. What He says goes and what He allows, grows me into the new creation He shapes and fashions.

I have come to accept this through many hardships and trials, some of my own making, and through it all I have realized, apart from Him I can do nothing. See John 15:5. I know good intentions apart from Christ are just that: intentions that are good. Most likely from a place of pride, or my flesh has some stake in the prospective outcome, or is based on some worldly principle.

I know for 2018, Jesus Christ must be my world, because without Him, nothing good exists. He has shown and continues to shine into my darkness beckoning me to leave all that’s less than love behind.

My expectation is of Him alone.

May every hurting heart desiring to be healed, be made whole.

Let my eyes be ever fixed on the transformations abounding in and because of Christ’s birth, death, and resurrection.

“Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19

I pray you start your new year By allowing Jesus to be Your way, Your Eternal Living Water…Your all in all. He thinks so much of you, He gave His very life to make the way for your eternity to be forgiven and free…

Hallelujah to the Giver of the Greatest Gift!

Watching the bulbs grow

Uncategorized No Comments »

So the bulbs were supposed to bloom by Christmas according to the numerous articles I read. As of today one set has green shoots one inch in length, mind you bulbs can be taller than a foot, the other set is only centimeters long. At this rate it appears I may not see blooms until after spring.

Yet I will hope…

I do notice the shorter blooms have more dried brown leaves which seems more like protective shields they have to push through. What is meant in one season to protect, can hinder and prevent growth in another season. As tempted as I am to trim back what’s dead and in the way, I must let nature take its course and enjoy those blooms at a later time.

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength: they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not be faint.” Isaiah 40:31
