Rejoicing in the Lord

 I took this picture when we visited my dad in Arizona

Yesterday I posted about John MacArthur  and listened to Jacob Prasch's teachings about all the things that we see wrong in the world, and how it is going to get much, much worse....and I know it is true and certainly we need to be in prayer about all these terrible things we see happening all around us, AND I can still be joyful in all that God does, has done, and has promised to do for all who are His.

Isaiah 61:10-11 
I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, 
my soul shall be joyful in my God;
 for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation,
 he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness, 
as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments, 
and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.  
For as the earth bringeth forth her bud, 
and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth; 
so the Lord GOD will cause righteousness and praise 
to spring forth before all the nations. 

Very soon it will be spring. I've planted a few seeds, some of my seedlings are doing well, and others not so well (I have more seeds so I'm gonna keep trying!) I can hardly wait to put them outside and see it all blooming adorning our little home with God's gifts in nature They are reminders from Jesus that one day all of creation will rejoice in the wonderful things He does for us.
