I have noticed that the past couple of weeks or so, the 7 AM hour is getting lighter and brighter to see. Isn't it funny how that sneaks up on you?

I have not seen any signs of crocuses or tulips peek through the mud and muck. I do not see any of the young trees with little buds starting to form on them. All is still cold, and looks dead. But as we know, there is hope!
Hope for warmth, hope of spring, hope for new life! The same is with you. You have a hope in Jesus Christ. If you obey His word, trust in his promises, you will go from the dead of winter to the hope of spring. I pray that you will come alive and be all that God wants you to be.
