Ahh, Spring! I love all of the layers of green and colours that are appearing. It’s a time of anticipation as we look forward to summer.
We have blue jays and mourning doves nesting in our yard at home. The doves actually took over one of our hanging baskets. They quickly assembled a nest and within a few days, and then two tiny white eggs appeared. We watched as both parents carefully and tenderly shared the duty to protect and keep the eggs warm. To our dismay however, neither parent returned this weekend. We hoped they might come back, and we frequently checked on the nest. Sadly, for whatever reason, these eggs were abandoned.
This is a great reminder to us that whatever we go through in life, whatever we may face, we can have confidence that God will never abandon us!
Deuteronomy 31:6 says, “Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord your God goes with you: He will never leave you nor forsake you.”
We can begin each day, well assured that God only wants the best for us. He promises that He is enough.
Philippians 4:6-7- “Do not be anxious about anything, but in prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
It’s amazing to know that God has got our back! Whatever challenges you may be facing today, choose to let God be your rock.
