Zechariah 10:1 ” Ask the Lord for rain in the Springtime; it is the Lord Who makes the storm clouds. He gives showers of rain to men, and plants of the field to everyone.”

I was chatting with a neighbor the other day about Springtime and plants…and yes, we were social distancing!  She sells wholesale plants to greenhouses in Illinois and was telling me that everyone was wanting to grow a garden this year.  Which I can really appreciate the desire to grow your own food in these uncertain times.  There’s something special about planting seed and watching the tiny plants emerge from the soil, and then harvesting the produce to feed your family.  Springtime is a season of hope and renewal and a time to see God’s creative power vividly at work.  To quote Psalms, “He makes clouds rise from the ends of the earth; He sends lightning with the rain and brings out the wind from His storehouses. He waters the mountains from His upper chambers; the earth is satisfied by the fruit of His work. He makes grass grow for the cattle and plants for man to cultivate – bringing forth food from the earth.”  Spring is a time that the Lord demonstrates just how much He cares for us.
