I think my heart is experiencing this duo melt also. Exterior circumstances are creating puddles of heartache, while God’s word is melting the frost of my harden heart. This humbling and softening is creating a little mud in my life. Although today feels a little murky, I know God is promising the blooms of spring, if I do not resist His warming.
Just as we cannot resist this muddy time of year, nor rush it. So, I will not expect to be exempt from times of trial, nor try to escape them.
We are enjoying the warm temperatures even though they come with mud. I am embracing the softening of my heart, even though it comes with pain.
I love spring; the fresh start to everything brings refreshed zeal. God’s mercy is new EVERY morning. Each day has the potential to be spring to my heart.
Oh Lord, You are the Sun working Your melting in my life. I pray for full Sun until Your work is done. Strengthen me to resist any cold temperatures that will prolong the hardening of my heart. Thank You Jesus, for spring, for fresh starts, to see Your hand prepping for green grass and beautiful blooms. Amen
