Super random, probably uninteresting thoughts.
As I was driving yesterday I couldn’t help but admire how the trees have blossomed and bloomed and the world is suddenly green again.
Once the world is green again, it’s difficult to remember what the dead of winter looked like, to remember how barren the landscape was just a few weeks ago.
It struck me that our walk with the Spirit is similar. It’s difficult to remember what my life consisted of before I allowed God in. I remember the things I used to do, the feelings I used to feel but they seem so foreign to me now.
Just as the trees appear in winter, I was dead. Then God rescued and blossomed me into a beautiful child of His.
There are times when I think back on my life and am amazed at how different I feel now. I feel wiser and matured, for sure, but I also know that there is so much ahead of me. I want so badly to continue to experience this life through God’s lens. To love others in the capacity he loves me and be fearless for his Kingdom.
“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
-2 Corinthians 5:17
