old vs. new... now vs. then
Updated: May 26, 2019
As I hang more basil from my garden to be dried by the morning sun, I consider the value found in all seasons of life.
The excitement found in youth.
The wisdom known with years.
Mostly, I consider how every age has a unique flavor.
How the passing of earthly time allows us fleeting moments to grow and bouquet, to seed and give, and finally, to wither and fade.
And yet, in each of these experiences, Jesus offers us His newness.
We are reborn in His presence.
We are renewed by His grace.
We are restored with His forgiveness.
To those who know Him, we will experience an eternity of discovery.
For our God is great and infinite.
Our God is awesome and beautiful.
Our God gives us LIFE.
Let us seek His magnificent presence throughout the ages.
Let us notice him equally in every molecule and dew drop.
Yes, today I sing because I’m happy.
I sing because I’m free... forever in His presence!
For this magnificent God’s eye is on every single sparrow.
And praise Him, I know He watches over me!
