Gasp!!!

I got another "love note"
from God today!
Look what he did this time!
I stood at the window for a long time this morning
just looking at the beauty of this display.
Can you see it?
It's hope
and it's right there
illustrated for me in a glorious display
of God's creation!
The contrast of the dark clouds
and the snowcapped mountains
illuminated by the sun,
is a metaphor
for how I've been feeling lately.
Isn't it just like God to wrap his arms around me
and illuminate my heart with his love
in the darkness of my own self-accusations,
my own doubt,
my persistant fear,
and my self-centered view life?

My life verse, Jeremiah 29:11 says:
"For I know the plans I have for you,
declares the Lord.
Plans to prosper you and not to harm you,
plans to give you hope and a future."
What I'm hearing:
"Becca, I have big plans for you!
Even in the midst of these looming dark clouds,
I know what I'm doing.
When you think the coldness of the Winter snow
will forever lay like a thick blanket
over your fearful heart,
I'm here
and my light is very much alive
and working in you.
Spring is on it's way!
I'm making something beautiful
and will illuminate it brilliantly for you
in my time."
