I dare to say that I've had more crises in life than most people my age, living in Scandinavia. It never gave me an excuse to turn my back against God however. He planted eternity in every human's heart, deep inside I knew He was reaching out His hand to me and all I had to do was to reach it. And peace came. Because peace is the one true thing everyone wants in life, no matter what you're life may look like and where you are peace is what you need. Peace that lasts for a while the world can give you, but peace that passes all understanding only He can give.
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the human heart; yet no one can fathom what God has done from beginning to end. Ecclesiastes 3:11
Then you will experience God's peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7
I'm so delighted it's spring again and there's light again! Nature is awakening! He breathed life into us, he gave us a spirit of life, and as things grow, breathe and live we know it's His will. Glory be to God, for this day, this life and the joy and warmth He fills my heart with even when I'm hurt, I can feel joy because He already felt my pain. (Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering, yet we considered him punished by God, stricken by him, and afflicted. Isaiah 53:4)
I really just wanted to write about my big zink herb pot where I had some rosemary, peppermint, lavender and oregano growing last year and I think at least the peppermint is coming again this year. The pictures somehow reminded me of greater things, just what I needed.
