And so here it is, the final week. The temperatures have begun to rise, the snow is melting, grass has been seen in lawns all over the neighborhood and birds are back. I even saw some geese flying over our house this morning. I had a twinge of excitement because I know that they are fully aware of the signs of the times.
When your life has been cold and even the sun in the sky does not feel warm you long for spring, for something new to come. I can’t tell you the joy that I have when I see little flowers begin to push their way through the frozen ground to get to the sunlight. It’s a sign that spring is here.
I’ve been studying recently the signs of the times when Jesus shall return and what we should be looking for.
Come Lord Jesus come!
I wonder if we long for his return as much as we long for other things?
I know I get so caught up in my life that I sometimes forget the one who gives me life. If indeed He is a reason for being, living, loving, then looking to His return and living like it should be our utmost desire in our attitude, behavior and speech.
Blessed are those who have not seen and believe.
I love how the amplified version says it
Blessed and happy and to be envied are those who have never seen Me and yet have believed and adhered to and trusted and relied on Me. John 20:29
Spring is coming, Jesus is coming! May we approach spring with excitement because it reminds us that Jesus will come again.
