Born Again


It is a wonder…

How new life sleeps silently below the surface, just waiting.

Just waiting for the day when bright rays of sunlight reach deep into the soil to touch the tiny face of each slumbering seed with an awakening kiss.

Something stirs within…

And soon, there’s a twisting and turning and then a breaking through.

Slowly, determinedly, a tiny shoot reaches up through the darkness to a place that’s full of light.

Hope rising.

Just beginning its journey to become what it was always meant be.

Fully alive.

Always reaching up to the Light.

To bring glory to the One who is the very giver of Life.

And so it is with us, when we wake up from the dark winter of our lives and awaken to new life in Him.

Touched by His Light.

Moved by His Spirit.

Wonderfully  ~  mercifully  ~  born again.

We were therefore buried with him
through baptism into death in order that,
just as Christ was raised from the dead
through the glory of the Father,
we too may live a new life.

- Romans 6:4
