Spring is Here!

Today is the first day of Spring. So far about six inches of fresh snow has fallen. Is it spring or isn't it spring?

If I look out my window at the "facts", I would definitely say winter!! However, if I could see from some sort of cosmic perspective, I would recognize the "fact" as being that the earth has reached a certain angle on it's axis wherein the northern hemisphere is angling back toward the sun. Spring is here. Really.

If I could see from some sort of cosmic perspective.

His plans for me are good... (Jer. 29:11)

I am a masterpiece... (Eph. 2:9)

God will not let me be tested beyond my strength... (1 Cor. 10:13)

All things work together for good... (Rom. 8:28)

I will pass safely through the sea of distress... (Zech. 10:11)

He will repay two blessings for every trouble... (Zech 9:12b)

He will complete the good work He started... (Phil. 1:3-6)

He will restore health and heal wounds... (Jer 30:17)

I will lack no good thing... (Ps. 34:10)

God will supply all my needs... (Phil. 4:19)

He delights in every detail of my life... (Ps. 37:23)

He always leads me in victory... (2 Cor. 2:14)

The enemy will not succeed... (Jer. 1:19)

He will restore broken relationships... (Mal. 4:5)

There are days when the "facts" that I can see with my eyes would weigh my heart down with despair. I need a cosmic perspective! What He has said, what He has spoken and declared to be true, is more true than any evidence to the contrary. Faith is the confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see. Faith pleases God.

For since the world began, no ear has heard,
and no eye has seen a God like you,
who works for those who wait for him!
(Isaiah 64:4)


  1. "He will repay two blessings for every trouble... (Zech 9:12b)"

    Um, that's AWESOME NEWS.

    At the conference I went to in January someone made this thought-provoking statement: Facts are temporal...Truth is ETERNAL. So those "facts" that we see that weigh our heart down? Not eternal. Not Kingdom. Not Truth with a capital T.

    Thank you again for your blog post! I am encouraged to look at the Big Picture; the "cosmic perpective"...
