Today’s Devotion was Written by Cassandra Morgan
2 Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.
As spring has finally sprung … or turned to early summer as Minnesota tends to do … we are blessed with the visible glories of God blooming and blossoming all around us. Greening grass, budding flowers, trees becoming full again; spring reminds us that what dies will be reborn, and what goes into darkness will find light again. I find spring to be a time of excitement, joy, and life! The warm weather invites us all back outside into the living spirit of God.
Every single time I step outside I breathe full lungs of God’s gifted air. I smell the fragrant life growing all around. I hear the Holy Spirit flow through the trees, and I feel it on my skin. We are gifted with these things each day but whether we observe them is up to us. May it be our goal to always appreciate these gifts we are given.
With reminders all around us, I pray that I am a visual representation of the Holy Spirit’s renewing presence. I want to greet others with the excitement of new life, and the good news of Christ’s resurrection. Through death we are reborn and given greater love than we can comprehend.
God all of that is good,
Be in our hearts as we enter this season of newness. Help our eyes to see your Spirit flowing in the world and help our voices to join in the mission of the Spirit, spreading Your goodness into the world. Make of us living proof that your Holy Spirit is present with us now and forever.
