~ March is here... ~

....and with it signs of Spring! :-D As I recently took a stroll around the yard I was excited to discover that many of our plants...the miniature roses, the Bradford pear trees, the lilac, iris's and several other plants are all beginning to put on their new bright green foliage, blooms etc. ! :-) Isn't it so amazing!! How do the plants know when it is time to bloom? And the purchased potatoes stored in a dark do they know when it is time to sprout? Our Lord God the Creator of heaven and earth DESIGNED them that way! :-)

"Ah Lord GOD! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and by Your outstretched arm! Nothing is too difficult for You"

Jeremiah 32:17

And as the plants put on their new growth, we too should be growing in the Lord...

"He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."

Jeremiah 17:8

Here are some of the "fruit" that we should be "growing"/"bearing"...

"But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control."

Galatians 5:22-23a

"Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if we do not grow weary."

Galatians 6:9

I looked up the meaning of the word "grow" and here are some of the definitions I found...

"to spring up and develop to maturity", "to be able to grow in some place or situation", "to assume some relation through or as if through a process of natural growth "increase, expand", "grows in wisdom", "to cause to grow"

May we all grow in our walk with the Lord each day!
