God's Faithfulness

The first signs of Spring popped out this week. I let the dogs out early in the morning and I noticed bright green shoots that seemed to have sprung up overnight.

I looked around the yard and saw more signs - just the beginning. It is as if the earth, the plants and all of nature are about to burst forth with life--once again.

Why am I surprised?

While the earth remains,
Seedtime and harvest,
And cold and heat,
And summer and winter,
And day and night
Shall not cease.
Gen. 8:22

God is faithful. This past year saw many twists and turns. Shocking events occurred in the nation's economy. Natural disasters abounded. Yet, springtime is showing its first signs of arrival, as it has every year on schedule. The steady rhythm of God's faithfulness undergirds us as His creation reveals.

I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in. --George Washington Carver

  1. Looking forward to Springtime. We have a few more months of snow left. But it's on it's way. My oldest daughters and I support MOPS at our church, too. We help with the childcare.

  2. this is so positive...a flower shoot reminds me that despite periods of darkness....light will always appear. Sarah

  3. My daffodils are springing up from the ground. Soon we will hear the spring peepers and other sights and sounds.

    Thankful for springtime and thankful for the hope that springs eternal - Jesus!

  4. Spring is my favorite time of year, I always thank the Lord for this time.
    God Bless,

  5. I love that the seasons come and go just as He planned them. He holds it all in place with His mighty arms. Have a wonderful day. Blessings, Debbie

  6. I love the quote by George Washington Carver.

  7. I love to see those first green sprouts of spring. Thank you for this reminder of God's faithfulness. Hope you are having a beautiful day.

  8. Thanks for this encouraging reminder. I was out in the yard playing ball with our son last week and wondered how long till I'd see buds on our fruit tree. God bless you!

  9. Oh, a wonderful post ~ I need to go out looking around! I heard some heavy rain here tonight. I do love Spring.
