"The desert and the parched land will be glad; the wilderness will rejoice and blossom. Like the crocus, it will burst into bloom; it will rejoice greatly and shout for joy. The glory of Lebanon will be given to it, the splendor of Carmel and Sharon; they will see the glory of the LORD, the splendor of our God." Isaiah 35: 1,2

I love spring. Anticipation builds as each green stem peeks through the earth. The buds forming on the trees promise transformation into something beautiful from the barrenness that winter left behind. With each spring rain the grass gets a little greener. Aleigh noticed our Forsythia shrub is now sprouting its vibrant yellow flowers exclaiming, “Mom, look at our bush, it is all pretty now!” There is just something about all the blooms bursting out that gives me a sense of splendor at God’s beautiful creation. There just seems to be a fragrance of excitement floating around. Many refer to this as spring fever. As I reflect on the splendor of this beauty I find myself thinking of God as a master gardener, working up my soil as he continues to prepare my life for his plan.

I think of how God has worked in my life through the past year, and especially since the beginning of 2008. I can look back and see the desert and parched places in my spiritual life that are now blossoming. I want to rejoice greatly at how God has planted seeds of hope in what my feeble mind deemed hopeless. I shout for joy at answered prayers like being a stay at home mom and financial provisions. I am amazed and find myself in awe at the intricate landscaping of the master gardener.

The crocus is one of the first spring flowers to emerge from the dreariness that winter can leave behind. I love how Isaiah describes its entrance – “it will burst into bloom” It is not like the other flowers that take their time to emerge. The crocus is ready to shoot from the darkness and shout the splendor of God. I believe we can learn from the attitude of the crocus.

Our pastor says often – “If there is anything we are behind on, it is our praise to God.” So today, I just encourage you to stop and reflect on what God has done and what God is doing in your life. I encourage you to take some time to see the glory of the Lord, the splendor of our God – and then like the crocus – Shout in joy your praise to Him. You can start right now and leave a bloom of praise to God below in the comment place.

Use this wonderful time of spring to allow God to cultivate any place in your soil that is parched so that God’s splendor may burst forward with a renewed passion in your relationship with him.

If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
