Spring up. Spring forth.

Spring is in the air.

Not that it feels like it today. Hail last night and a cold wind doesn’t make one think of the coming hot sunny days of summer. But as I was outside a couple of weeks ago having a look around the soggy garden…I saw these flowers. Spring is appearing.

And all week I have been struck with  the verse from Isaiah 43:19

 Behold, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs forth; do you not perceive and know it and will you not give heed to it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

I believe the Lord is releasing a new thing.  And I release this word over your life as you read this, in His name. I release the blessing of a new season springing up. Of freshness of His presence and His glory upon your life. I bless that which has appeared buried, snuffed out, aborted, barren or dormant;  to bud into life.  That His splendor will be unveiled.  That His Glory will be seen. I bless your dreams and visions.  I bless your friendships and connections.  I bless your families and your decisions. I bless your courage and your vulnerability, your humility and your faithfulness.

I bless the new thing the Lord is doing in your midst. Behold, it springs forth!!
