My trips to town now are full of color--the fields are not just green, they're a vibrant green from the rain and warmer weather. But it's not just the fields, it's the flowering trees and spring flowers that add a bright beauty to everything. Everything is refreshed and restored after the winterthe months of drab barrenness.
Looking through my life, I can see times of drabness, and times of greenness--even times when my life has seemed lush and vibrant. Those were the times I was closest to God. Times when I lived from the overflow of my time spent in communion with my Savior.
I've found that worship and praise can turn the nice, green landscape of my life into a lush garden that sparkles with splashes of vibrant color. And that's what I wantlush and vibrant. Green is good, but why settle for good when gorgeous is just across that bridge of worship and praise?
"Restore to me the joy of Thy salvation,
And sustain me with a willing spirit."
"Bless he Lord, O my soul;
And all that is within me,
bless His holy name."
