Budding Into Life

This lovely tree is placed outside the windows at work,so one day I took a picture of it. It has pretty much looked this way all winter long, with what looks like buds on the tips of the branches. Poised as if awaiting the arrival of spring. But this is proof that God's Word is truth as it is said in: Luke 21:29-35, And he spoke to them in a similitude. See the fig tree, and all the trees: 30 When they now shoot forth their fruit, you know that summer is nigh;
31 So you also, when you shall see these things come to pass, know that the kingdom of God is at hand. 32 Amen, I say to you, this generation shall not pass away, till all things be fulfilled. 33 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. 34 And take heed to yourselves, lest perhaps your hearts be overcharged with surfeiting and drunkenness, and the cares of this life, and that day come upon you suddenly. 35 For as a snare shall it come upon all that sit upon the face of the whole earth.

How often does the Word of God speak loudly to a heart, yet these words touched mine in the very depth. The Truth sets us free doesn't it, and the the Truth is Jesus and he paid the price to free us. I know my bondage and he set me free of it by giving me His Love. A new springtime was born in my heart gazing and pondering the tree with perpetual buds. Moments in time to reflect upon the growth of faith as it blossoms anew, born by love and fed by the waters of life.
