Seasons Proclaim God's Goodness

True goodness enjoys uninterrupted, everlasting flow right from the heart and loins of God, but I am most acutely aware of it during the passing seasons of life on the earth.

I see how spring shows forth His mercy when it breaks the grip of snow and ice.  Then in summer's warmth I see His splendor on hillsides covered in deep green grass and the blazing spectrum of wildflowers. I bless Him for the resting place found in fall as seeds "seemingly dead" upon dried, withered ground actually simmer in the transitional germination/expectation of new life. And then, the God of all preservation commands a snowy cloak to swaddle the ground and protect earth's surface, destroying germs and viruses (for "who can withstand His cold?").

Indeed Daddy is THE Mighty God; THE Good God Who shows forth the glorious attributes of His character with every tick of the clock, and renews His generous mercies upon each rotation of the earth. Hallelujah!

When we ask, Holy Spirit will show us the Father's hand in everything, and our hearts will resound with the same magnanimous praise the Lord Jesus our High Priest utters in truth before Him daily.

"O, Lord, our Lord, how excellent is Your Name in all the earth!" (Psalms 8:9)


"... fervent in spirit, serving the Lord."
(Romans 12:11b)
