Jehovah was not in the wind. And after the wind, an earthquake: Jehovah was not in the earthquake.
And after the earthquake, a fire: Jehovah was not in the fire. And after the fire, a soft gentle voice. (1Kings 19:11-12)

Hope of The Resurrection {Words of Life Wednesdays ~ A Link-up}

{Join us below for Words of Life Wednesdays with a link-up of your post.
We'd love to hear how God's Word has been nourishing you.}


We have groaned for new life. Hoped.

It has come.

Wounds of winter past, the deadness of sin has passed away.

Sure hope of spring eternal, the new life has come.

***

He took his children and together they planted bulbs of garlic in dark soil before the cruel winter settled and it's winds whipped us down. All winter the old life died.

We waited.

And there in the spring, it came up.

New life.

The old had passed.

The new had come.

We rejoiced.

Oh, the joy of new life.

***

Because of the resurrection we have been given hope.

Nothing is impossible with God.

We do not need to stay in the wounds of the winter, the deadness of sin.

There is a way to life.

But it is to die to self.

To be alive in Christ.

"Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures." {1 Corinthians 15:3}

  7. Rebekah-God has given you a creative way to tie simple, yet poetic words together and make them into art. Just reading your words caused me to breathe deep and slow down for a minute. Thank you.
