Soul Awakened

 Texas blue bonnets, a favorite flower announcing a new season with bright color.

To see the clean, bright colors of Springtime, appear generously from the earth and announce new life.

It’s a beautiful reminder to my soul, just how generous, good and faithful God is, to make all things new.

“But according to his promise we are waiting for new heavens and a new earth in which righteousness dwells.”  2 Peter 3:13

Yet, we can experience new life today in Christ!

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. 

The old has passed away; behold the new has come.”  2 Corinthians 5:17

“…to put off your old self, which belongs to your former manner of life and is corrupt through deceitful desires,

and to be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and to put on the new self,

created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness.”     Ephesians 4:22-24



Soul Awakened


My heart, dear God, identify.

Wrestling, back and forth

Discern that which bombards

The rest and peace I regard.

My eternity, my only worth.

When shall I be content?

Quietly, each day to serve,

For I am doing much better

Than I deserve.

Oh soul, awakened to remember.

You’ve tasted and perceived

His truth, delight, and mercy tender

Flaming out of being cleansed.
