Today, I see God’s love through his creation in the flowers blooming before my eyes like I never had the chance to see all at once before like this! Because of our cleansing spring rain brought up beauty overnight and no goats to devour everything in sight! So, we decided today is the perfect day to set the butterflies free. So many beautiful flowers to choose from! My children were so excited to let them go! They ran outside near the woods and said, “mom there are more flowers then we ever have seen!” We waited so patiently for the butterflies to emerge from their cocoon, so it made sense to wait for the perfect time to release them into the big beautiful world! While we were waiting for the weather to change, they flew in the window. The weather dramatically went from warm spring to summer, and then to freezing cold going into winter! Frost even touched the garden and the plants barley escaped with their lives, because I couldn’t cover them all. Also, there were hungry birds desperately trying to get them through the window! So, as they lived a carefree life in our garden window, we fed them strawberries and flowers that grew in our indoor garden. We carefully picked the right time and place to set them free and far away from danger!
We can trust God cares for us as we continue living out our lives for Him! He will give you everything you need! It might not feel like God is carefully watching and caring for us, but we need to remember, God keeps all his promises and they are surrounded by his Son, Jesus! Psalm 121:8, “The Lord will guard your going out and your coming in From this time forth and forever.” God has perfect timing because all the days of our life have been written! He knows every step we will take, and has Constant loving thoughts for all of you! The thoughts he has for you are as numerous as the sand (Psalm 139:17-18)! I’m so thankful to hear these words! I need to hear them all day long! I write them on the tablet of my heart! Have you looked closely at the grands of sand? I really have tried to count the sand and noticed you can’t even see some of the grains of sand with your eyes! We can’t even begin to understand our own human understanding on how that is even possible! But we are not supposed to trust in our own understanding! Just as we search for God through our circumstance, we can see his outstretched arms stretch like a rainbow across the sky, giving all of us a hug! Sometimes we might be even in the rainbow and that’s why you can’t see it! His love and compassion for us exceeds anything we can even fathom! We can suddenly be lifted up and out of our situation or circumstance, just like how we took the butterflies to a safe place before the dangerous birds snatched them out of the window! Thankfully, the window was there to protect them and the butterflies were safe! Sometimes God might keep you in your situation to grow you as you trust him with your life! You are His child and he loves all of us deeply! (1 John 3:1-3)
We are light seekers in the storm, and as We prepared for the storm to come, we finally had to go inside! We saw the deep dark clouds brewing from a distance and knew it was a matter of time before we would hear the crack sound of the deep thunder with flashing lighting as bright as the sun! When we finally went inside, we heard the bang we had been waiting for this whole time! Hail and rain came down like a waterfall! I said “the storm is here” and all the kids ran to the window to see! When you build your life on the rock and have an abiding relationship with Jesus, we can have joy in the storm! As I abide in Jesus by holding onto his every promise, standing firm in faith even in the storm! I can trust in his perfect timing for my life because he loves me! He also loves you too! He loves us all the same! He gives you strength and peace as we work through our struggles in life, like a butterfly coming out of a cocoon or a chick pecking to get out of an egg! Alway hold onto hope in God because Hope in him is solid and it cannot be shaken! “Hebrew 12:28-29,”Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our “God is a consuming fire”
1 Timothy 4:9-11 “This is a trustworthy saying that deserves full acceptance. That is why we labor and strive, because we have put our hope in the living God, who is the Savior of all people, and especially of those who believe.” The treasure only comes from pressure as we run the race. When you rely on God’s strength that has no measures you will grow to become more like Jesus! There are no limits with God!
