Dear God, We thank you for this time of prayer. Already wonderful things have begun to happen for us just by being here. We want to hear your voice. We want to know you more intimately. We love you. May we have a blessed day together. Amen.
I’m in the season of waiting and watching. Waiting for the cold days to become warm, the bare trees to blossom.
During these moments, I am anxious and excited, knowing the winter is a time of death for something in my life to come to an end. Perhaps a relationship I thought was worth pursuing, a job, a book idea, even a sinful habit.
Now spring is in full bloom–a time for new beginnings. I am filled with fresh hope and vibrancy like the buds and blossoms brightening the days.
As I watch buds open, flowers bloom and pedals fall, I expect good things to lie ahead because this spring, which seemed to take a long time coming, is the opportunity to see God initiate new things in not only me, but all who believe.
Are you watching and waiting?
