Here is your May Sounds!
It’s pollen season! (I’m sure you don’t need reminding since you may have noticed by now the thick yellow/green coating on the cars outside.) Well my friends, this means Spring is in full effect; and while the pollen doesn’t serve those who have bad allergies, boy is it a sign that our days ahead will be warmer, brighter, more green, and filled with color from all the beautiful plants in bloom. While this is a joy filled season for many of us as we get to spend more time outside, and break out the shorts, know that there is even a greater joy that goes beyond the sunny days and beautiful colors. This joy is found in Jesus Christ our Lord, and the promises He has made to us in His Word. While the sun shines and the flowers bloom, there is still hurt, pain, and suffering in this world. But God’s love and promises remain TRUE in ALL circumstances, even when it’s dark and it feels like there is no joy to be found.
“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever,” Isaiah 40:8
Smile at the blooming flowers, laugh in the sun, but know that we have a greater joy that goes beyond anything this world can give… because Jesus died for our sins, so that we may have eternal life. Well my friends, this means God’s love is in full effect; and while the cross meant death for Jesus, boy does it bring life to us.
