Our local ranch and farm supply store is singing a song of life. As soon as you step through the sliding glass doors, the music tickles your ear and draws you to a warm spot where peeping chicks are bobbling around in their fuzzy jackets.
This delightful ritual repeats itself annually and I’m always invigorated by the concept of new life.
Fresh start. Renewal. Hope.
Imagine if spring came only once in our lifetime. How easy it would be to forget God’s promise of revival and redemption. Instead, every year we have the chance to hear Him say, “It’s not too late.”
As the God of creation, He is also the God of re-creation, and He pointed this out to Noah after the watery ‘death’ of the world:
“As long as the earth endures,
Seedtime and harvest,
Cold and heat,
Summer and winter,
Day and night
Will never cease”
