Good morning! Today's power scripture comes from Deuteronomy 8:7 For the Lord thy God bringeth thee into a good land, a land of brooks of water, of fountains and depths that spring out of valleys and hills;.”
Well for some it is official and for others they probably won’t believe it until they can really feel it….but it is now spring. Supposedly very soon the harshness of winter is to give way to the mild caresses that the spring weather will impose upon the land. Many have suffered long and hard this past winter, with record breaking temperature lows, back-to-back storms and never ending rains. Regardless of the way March has entered into your neck of the woods; it is a much needed transition. As I watch the dogwood trees bloom it is also delightful to view the pear and Japanese maples changing colors. Song birds fill the air each morn with melodious tunes to their Creator. The squirrels have gotten friskier and even the local insects are making a comeback from their winter hiatus.
I must admit that while my favorite season of the year is autumn, I do enjoy the pleasurable transition that March brings…especially since it is also my birth month (March 26). God has given us a promise of revival, renewal and rejuvenation. Take some time today to give God thanks for his marvelous creation, Mother Earth, and for the blessing of the seasons. As Solomon scribed in Ecclesiastes, there is a time and a season for everything under the sun. Give God praise for the majesty of his precise workings; as we watch the heavens obey his laws. Buried bulbs awaken from their months of slumber and push their tulip tops skyward, and even the smallest bush responds and knows when to bud. There are hidden treasures deep inside of each of us. God placed them their while we were yet being knit together in our mother’s womb. Some of them are awakening now and yearning to break free. Let God’s beauty come forth . Now is your time to blossom.
Every day is a good day, it is up to us to make it a power-packed GREAT day! Have a fantastic weekend. See you on Monday. Be blessed! - Dr. JoAnn
