He Loves Me and He Always Will!

He Loves Me and He Always Will!

Daisy flower

 

While sitting out on my porch sipping my morning cup of coffee and listening to the birds sing their beautiful little songs, I was just rejoicing that it had warmed up enough to sit out there without freezing.   Even though there was still a chill in the air, the aroma of some of the blooms from the Pear trees rode the gentle breezes and brought a smile to my face. I thought about how some of the simplest things are what pleases me the most. I was noticing some small little daisies growing wild and was thinking about the little game that we use to play with the daisy petals. Have you ever pulled the petals off of a daisy and played the game “He loves me, He loves me not?”

One day not long ago when I was sitting outside enjoying myself, my children came running outside and grabbed me by the arm and began pulling me inside. They were obviously so excited to show me something. Anyway, I didn’t want to burst their little bubble so I followed in anticipation as to what they wanted me to see. They lead me into my bedroom where they had  cleared an area that I kept pretty cluttered with books etc and had made a nice little seating area for me to enjoy. They knew what I liked and so they arranged some of my favorite things around this little area. I was so surprised and just extremely overwhelmed that my boys wanted to show me how much they loved me by doing something so special.

As I thought about how much they wanted to bless me and please me, I thought about how that I could possibly be pleasing to others. Without trying to be preachy or too corny, the best way I know is to simply let the love of our Father God show through me. I hope this blog is one of those little ways! As I pour my heart into what I feel the Lord would have me to write today, it is simply that He loves you. He cares about every concern that you may have today, whether it is small or huge!

(KJV) Psalm 138:8 The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me: thy mercy, O Lord, endureth for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.

It doesn’t matter to Him what you do, or do not do. You are a beautiful work of his hand! He chose to love you. You can’t pull petals off of His daisy and ever find one that says “He loves me not!” You can’t earn his love! He just lavishes it upon you freely every day. You might be saying “Hey lady, I don’t know what you’re talking about? My life is in the dumps right now! How could anyone possibly love me when I am like this?”   I would say to you, that you’re the very one he wanted to speak to today, “I love you with an everlasting love, even when you think you are unlovable!” He says.

(KJV)3: 16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

One of the greatest things that I found about the love of God is that he purposely came for those who didn’t have their acts together! There are days when my life is just out of control and I am very unlovely in my behavior, but I have found that I have a place to run to! I run to my Father, His arms are always open. His arms are safe and they feel wonderful! His love is inexhaustible Will you just fall back into his loving arms and let him love you today? I hope that you will! As you tear the petals off of your daisy today, all you will ever hear Him say, “I love you and always will, I love you and always will!”

A little Spring to Lift the Spirit!

The First Signs of Spring to Lift the Spirit!

First Signs of Spring! 001

Matthew 6:26  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

The past few days in Georgia the weather has been simply beautiful, the earth is waking up!  It is amazing to see how green the grasses have become.  It blew me away to see how fast my beautiful jonquils shot forth out of the ground and began to bloom! Less than two weeks ago, we had an ice storm and snow!  Also my wisteria is starting to have little green shoots.  They will probably bloom this week as well.   I don’t know about you, but with the change of season, comes a change in mood!

The mornings are still really cool, but I throw on a flannel shirt and get out on my front porch and just listen to the sounds of the birds singing their songs!  The other day I had the privilege of getting to see a huge flock of Robins land in my yard.  There must have been several hundred of them!  I love to hear them communicate to each other.  I am sure they were saying “Look at what treasures our Father has provided for us beneath all of these dead leaves!” This usually always means Spring has sprung.   Through the signs of Spring, the Lord lifts my spirit!

With everything coming alive and the birds singing their praise to the Lord, it seems as though the following scripture is coming alive! Matthew 6:26  Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they?

Why worry, when the Lord has already told us in his Word and showed us that He intends on taking good care of us!   I hope as you hear and see the signs of Spring outside your window or if you are like me, you get right outside in the thick of it, that you will know that you are valued and that the Father is taking good care of you!
