It is a cleanup mowing day! Just a few days left before the last day of winter and the earth has been awakening with a vengeance from its very short winter nap! The beauty of the green, green grass against the early spring flowers, trees, blue skies, are breathtaking - refreshing. The earth waking up seems to be happening almost before my eyes.
New life - new resolutions - renewed determination - renewed vows.
So many moments I am thankful His grace and mercy which give me "spring" each and every day. How He "refreshes" me and we begin again. Reading His Word this morning awakened the fear in my heart.
Not for myself - Christ has me covered.
It is for those outside of Him.
I read what life outside of Him is - and He brings to mind those whose fruits show they have chosen to live outside of Him.
So many moments I am thankful He is cleansing my heart - to love like Him, that my heart breaks for what breaks His. That He is beside me, guiding me to continue in my covenant with Him.
So many moments I am so thankful and blessed to know I am His bride. What a totally fulfilling relationship I have with Him! How I love and adore Him.
How I know, without a doubt, He unconditionally loves me.
Even when I break a vow, He still forgives and never "divorces" me. How this love we share, makes me desire to show - not prove - my love for Him. To share Him with others, so they too can know, feel what it is all about.
All of us. We are not part of a treasure or "a" treasure, but the "all" of His treasure.
Prayers for "all" to live life as His "dearly held treasure".
