Simply...Living For Him

New Life…

Contemplating Easter…contemplating Spring…wow, they are both so meaningful to me.  Easter… I am actually breathless at the thought of it.  When I think about the true depth of my Savior giving His life for me…little ‘ol sinful me…I truly can tremble.

Spring…so much symbolism. And of course Easter lies within it. They are both intertwined perfectly as the Creator intended.

The bird builds its nest preparing for new life.  The leaves bud.  The flowers bloom.  The air turns warm.  The days are brighter…

Spring is such a time of renewal, rebirth, new life.
Spring means so much to me. I met my husband in Spring. Actually it was the first day of Spring…it was the foreshadowing my MY rebirth.
Years later, we would be reborn…in spring…

See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. 
Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come” 
Song of Solomon 2:11-12

I was married in spring.  I had three of my children on the cusp of spring…

It’s a time when the dark, cold days give birth to the bright warm days, full of light…
and there lies Easter, in Spring.
Passing from death to life…Old to new… rebirth.

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! 2 Corinthians 5:17

As I see spring unfold all around me-the longer days, the lighter days, the warmer days.
The forsythia bloom their beautiful burst of yellow.

I am reminded once again of the new life I have in Christ.  If He did not die, I would not live.  If he did not rise, I would not live…

Not just live now, but life eternal.

Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives and believes in me will never die. John 11:25-26 

I am breathless…

Because I know what it was like to live in the dark and now to live in the light. To know the truth, and have the truth set me free.

Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free. 
John 8:32

Like the forsythia that blooms, I have bloomed.

Only I will continue to bloom throughout this life, and into the next…
Thank you Jesus for Spring, for Easter, for You.

I no longer live in fear, but by faith. I no longer live for me, but for Him.
I am so grateful for Spring…and for my Savior, who set me free….

This Spring and this Easter, it is my prayer that anyone who read this, if they do not know Him as their Lord and Savior, will.  To know Him, is to live for Him….
