It's such a wonderful time of the year.
Hi everyone. I’m Sherry Douglas with Heart-Song. Happy Easter! Yesterday, Christians around the world celebrated the resurrection of Jesus. Along with that beautiful celebration, and Spring, comes the thought of new life. All we have to do is look around us to see plants popping up, flowers blooming, and trees budding. It’s such a wonderful time of the year.
New life can also involve considering what will spring up in us during this next season.
Has life ever felt like you’re living in a rut or spinning your wheels, meaning each day resembles one another so much it’s hard to tell them apart? Life can be like that for a while before we even recognize it. We may find ourselves sighing a lot, saying things like, “I wish…,” or just dreading to get out of bed in the mornings. We’re feeling the need of new life and something to spring up inside of us!
The Lord addresses this in Isaiah 43:19. He says, “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” New things…new life…new opportunities springing up for us and in us! Whether you are a person of faith or not, life can be renewed with hope while we wait and watch.
New life! How beautiful it is. Happy Easter! Live the way you want to be remembered! See you next time.
