“The faithful love of the LORD never ends! His mercies never cease. Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.” Lamentations 3:22-23 NLT
The Low Country has been rainy all day, and bright neon steams of pollen have flooded parking lots, cars, and yards. I have been quite thankful that rain is washing away pollen that has been plaguing my allergies for weeks! Now, I know that sneezing will start again soon, but it is nice to have hope that at least those of us who are allergic to eveything outside can have some relief.
How true is this also about our lives? We struggle. We mess up. We sin. Spring brings warmer air, bright colors, and flowers, but it also brings a beautiful picture of God’s love. Just as rain washes away pollen, God’s love and His Son’s death and resurrection washes away our sin. It isn’t just temporary either. We can experience his mercy and faithfulness daily.
Let spring remind you of God’s desire to be in a relationship with you. Let this new season give you hope!
