Father, give us a special SPRING in our step today! No more hanging our head low beating ourselves up about our past! It's the first day of spring, time to hold our head up high and look to You for a fresh new start!
For your word says:
“Forget about what’s happened;
don’t keep going over old history.
Be alert, be present. I’m about to do something brand-new.
It’s bursting out! Don’t you see it? (Isaiah 43:18-19 MSG)
Yes Lord, we want to see it!! Help us to see the joy, the sunshine, the hope that YOU promise. Bring on the new! We are closing the book on this "winter" in our lives, and expectantly waiting for that thing that we've been dreaming of, talking about, and praying about to burst out! :-)
-In Jesus' name, Amen.
