Spring is Here!

I do not remember welcoming seasons so much in CA, probably because they did not really exist. Anyways i am loving spring minus itchy nose and yellow pollen coating every surface of my home. but the shades of green here are amazing. Jeremy and i went to Duke Gardens with a Chipotle picnic and the tulips were awesome. The older i get the more i like this nature stuff. Perhaps my wonder and awe of God is growing. I love the cool mornings and cool evenings. and the breezes are great. Two days ago i went for a run(also a new thing i like to sorta do since moving here) and while running through the forest i had to stop, sit and pray. I was so glad no one passed through while i was there because it was such a special God moment, praying for many I love. I was listening to one of my favorite songs, Beautiful, by Gungor. The lyrics are:

All this pain
I wonder if I’ll ever find my way?
I wonder if my life could really change at all?
All this earth
Could all that is lost ever be found?
Could a garden come up from this ground at all?

You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of the dust
You make beautiful things
You make beautiful things out of us

All around
Hope is springing up from this old ground
Out of chaos life is being found in You

You make me new, You are making me new
You make me new, You are making me new
Making me new

I had been praying for a few special people in my life who i believe are in the process of God doing mighty things in their life. I see God taking their life and turning it into this beautiful garden but the only thing is that they do not see or believe it yet. one friend is attempting to flee an abusive relationship with her kids. i know she sees this life as this old ground but i see a lush garden with her and her kids being raised up to mighty oaks of righteousness. right now they are dry almost withered away plants but God has a new story to tell. her story is one of a handful that i am praying for. my prayer is that they see what i see. i believe God helps me to see what He sees is true of people and then my role is to share that truth with them until they see and believe and accomplish what God has for them. Jesus, i pray they see themselves and their situation the way you do. that they would be full of hope of the story You are writing in them if they allow you to cultivate the potential garden that is within them.
