After the winter we just had, even rain looks good to me as I eagerly await spring.
Rain is an integral part of spring,
Without it, there would be no life, just barren desert.
This past harsh icy winter has left the trees asleep, the ground extra hard, and abounding dreariness. A need for escape, light, sunshine, warmth and a new view.
Winter can occur in the soul as well.
A deep freeze, hardening our hearts, locking us into believing hope is nowhere nearby.
But spring too can happen for the soul, in the hearts of those who seek it.
It just takes rain.
A living water than soaks in deep, getting in to every nook and cranny of your being.
Watering the seeds planted, waiting for such a time as this.
A water that restores, causes life to bloom, forgiveness to flow, new life to blossom.
A cleansing away of winter until there is no trace left, and all you can sense is the spring now flowing out of you.
Without winter, the soul would not appreciate spring.
Without rain, spring could never come.
“He comes as rain comes,
as spring rain refreshing the ground. ”
Hosea 6:3 (Message)
If you are stuck in the winter running rampant within, know that God wants to shower you with His presence, soak you in His love, and set spring and life free within you.
Its time to stand up, ask for God’s rain to pour down on you; to find the refreshing you have been longing for in His downpour.
For He will come.
His word is His promise.
Spring is coming.
