New Life

I’m watching brown turn to green.

I’m watching trees bud out with the joy of new life.

I’m watching birds rejoice in being home.

I’m watching grass spring to life.

The ugly-beautiful is becoming simply beautiful.

The frozen is melting.

And God is seeking to impress upon my heart once again the lessons of rebirth, renewal, and transformation.


For this is what His grace can do with a life surrendered to Him without reservation.

He can create new hearts within us, replacing our sin-stained hearts.

He can give joy in new life.

He can bring us to life…unthaw us…make us channels of His love.

He can turn our ugliness into His vision of beauty.

It’s the time of awakening, of new life, in nature…

Let it be yours, too.
