I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Blog May, Flowers and Hope

It is May. While we might expect warm weather by now, warmer temperatures have been slow in arriving. Many turned off furnaces when we had a few very warm days, only to turn them on again when the temperatures dipped into the freezing range bringing high winds, rain, and even hail.

Nevertheless, the grass is starting to green, trees are budding, and flowers are hesitantly

poking their heads through the ground. I recall one year when cold temperatures kept Spring on hold while cold prevailed. Then one day, almost by magic everything changed. Temperatures warmed and suddenly, as though waiting for just the right time, the outdoors bloomed with color and enticing smells of flowers and grass and so much more.

That special moment is what happens when we give control of our lives to Jesus. He comes in and everything becomes new. We become new creations in Him. Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new.” 2 Corinthians 5:17 NKJV

What better time than now to become the beautiful creation God has in mind for those who follow Him?
