But this year is different. I'm actually anticipating Spring. Looking forward to it. Feeling the need to open the windows, scrub the house, and play in the dirt. More than anything, I'm ready to experience new life.
I watched helplessly as our old life was torn up by its roots. I've spent the last few months allowing the Lord to cultivate the hard places of my heart in order to uncover my belief, my trust, and my hope. He's poured Living Water into my soul and nourished my faith. Now, our new life is waiting to burst forth through the fertile soil.
And I can hardly wait.
"Remember not the former things,nor consider the things of old.Behold, I am doing a new thing;now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?"~Isaiah 43:18-19 (ESV)
P.S. - sorry I missed The Week in Words. It'll return next week!
