Spring Fever

Today I needed a touch of spring.

spring fever

is it too early for spring fever?

I don’t think so

so I bought these lovely tulips

a good reminder that spring is coming

a reminder that there is hope

*

         

such a little word that holds such a big promise

the promise of forgiveness

the promise of heaven

the promise of being with Jesus forever

*

some say that hope floats

i suppose that’s true

when i think about the hope we have in Christ

it keeps me from being totally overwhelmed with life

my head is still above the water (even though I’m paddling furiously underneath)

because the hope Jesus offers is my life preserver

Guide me in your truth and teach me,
for you are God my Savior,
and my hope is in you all day long. Psalm 25:5

*

i find that i’m drawn more to the picture painted in Hebrews 6:19:

“we have this hope as an anchor for the soul, firm and secure.”

*

when something shakes our world and turns it upside down

hope is that anchor that steadies us

it  calms our soul

it keeps us grounded

*

and best of all  . . .

” . . .  hope does not disappoint us,

because God has poured out his love into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, whom he has given us.” 

Romans 5:5

*

like the first crocus holds the promise that spring isn’t far off

Jesus holds the promise of hope

reach out

and share it with someone who needs it

*

*

if that person is you

i’m praying for you
