One of my favorite things about being at home so much lately has been the time spent enjoying our yard and all of the new things that are coming up in Springtime. This is our first Spring in our new home and it has been so fun seeing all of the new growth come up! We go on walks and see what is new each day and what has grown and changed. It’s such a great time to reflect on God’s beautiful creation and remember the way that He created the earth to be – GOOD. It helps us to slow down and remember the goodness of God. There are so many bible verses about nature and creation. Take some time to read over the list of our favorites as you enjoy His creation this season!
I’ll admit, Good Friday has not always been my favorite day to observe or celebrate. We take time to remember the way that Christ died on the cross and the pain that He endured that day. But I believe the Lord would have us view this day in light of the complete work that He did. After all, it was His choice to hang there that day, He gave himself willingly, and all for us! In the light of Easter Sunday morning and a risen Savior, Good Friday is good! It is a beautiful remembrance of the love that was shown for us that day! We’ve put together some of our favorite verses and Good Friday quotes to reflect on as we remember the sacrifice that Jesus gave on Good Friday.
The home we live in now is more than we dreamed of and the story behind how we got it is one of those stories where you are like only God could have done that! So when decorating our living room, I knew I wanted to incorporate a scripture that would remind me every time I read it that this home was a gift from the Lord.
If you’re feeling stressed or anxious about anything at all, take some time today and meditate on these verses and cast your cares on the Lord. Tell him about your troubles and have faith that He hears and has made a way where there is no way. Stay in that mindset and pray until you can feel the presence of God and until you feel His peace. Repeat daily or as needed. ❤️
