Snowdrops! I have just seen my first snowdrops of the year! Spring is coming!
Let us know, let us press on to know the Lord; his appearing is as sure as the dawn; he will come to us like the showers, like the spring rains that water the earth.”
The snowdrops come every year, I look for them as my first sign of spring. (I know some places in the rest of Canada will not see green for a while yet.) The Lord God appearing is a sure as the dawn, as sure as the snowdrops.
How do we “press on to know the Lord”? What are the signs that the Lord has appeared to us? I want to know the Lord better today than yesterday. I want to feel the spring rains on me. I believe that he will appear sure as the dawn and I hope to be the one to SEE the dawn.
How do I prepare for the Lord coming? I need to study and pray, much like preparing the earth in the spring for a garden. I will then care for the garden, clean out the weeds, water the earth and…reap the bounty of the Lord God’s grace and blessings!
What a bounty I will receive when I press on and open up to the Lord appearing at the dawn of each day.
Yours in Christ,
Gwyn, Kat, and Shannon
