Beautiful Provisions........

 ~The beauty of a hotel in Paris~

Beautiful surroundings are everywhere....... all around the world........we just have to take the time to look!  It's a gorgeous day where I live and a fresh day full of promise and blessing!  Everyday we are offered a new and fresh beginning by a God who can provide for EVERYTHING we need!  It's true, my friend, His name is Jehovah Jireh ~ The God who provides!  This name tells us God is willing and able to meet every need of His people!  Yes, God is Supreme, He is Sovereign, He is Faithful, He is Holy, He is Just, He is Wise, He is Eternal, He is the Creator God, and He is Good!  Absolutely and consummately good!!!   What good news for you and for me each and every day.

The beautiful pictures above inspire me to think about springtime and the beauty of every season.  Something to think upon today......even the seasons are designed to provide for us in our lives and give us the sunshine and the food we need for survival.  The Bible says, "Nevertheless he did not leave Himself without witness, in that He did good, gave us rain from Heaven and fruitful seasons, filling our hearts with food and gladness."  Acts 14:17   Beautiful surroundings don't just pop up, someone provided and gave of their efforts, time, and energy and hopeful love.  Oh, I know not everyone appreciates beauty but those who do, it unleashes positive energy thus leading to positive experiences in our lives each day!  It amazes me, when I stop to think that even the seasons are ordained by God for provision throughout the earth.  The wise farmer, who is almost a person of the past, could look at the moon, the sun, and the stars and decide about the proper time of planting his seeds in order to reap full benefit at harvest time.  His family worked the field and gardens in order to store up food for the seasons when the soil would need rest.  Yes, wisdom can be lost in just one generation if we fail or forget to teach what we believe is important.  Generational  wisdom and love is so important to pass on to our children and grandchildren so they too can enjoy the blessings of knowing Jehovah Jireh, the One who has provided for us and the One who will provide for them. Yes, enjoy this beautiful day and this beautiful season and pass along to others the joy that fills the heart when one knows and loves Jesus Christ!  

Last night, I shared with my husband how thankful I am that He knelt down in a hotel room many years ago and gave his life to the Lord.  Our lives have never been the same!!!!!  So thankful for the seasons of our lives and the beautiful garden of memories that is still growing!  Plant some seeds today and just "see"  what beautiful fruit HE WILL PROVIDE!!!
