The mystery of Jesus revealed today is as “Restorer.” The One who can and will restore health, inclusion in community, relationships, peace, hope, and more. When there is so much happening in the world around us, the reminder that Jesus through his life, death and resurrection fulfilled the ability to completely restore us is so comforting. Where we cannot often see the possibilities in a situation, Jesus can and does. Where we cannot often make things better or restored on our own, Jesus can and does.
Thanks be to God for never giving up on us - and helping us see/navigate the way.
Which is a reminder of the joy of this time of year. Spring is a visual reminder, especially to me, that new life can come from what was fallow and dormant, even seemed dead. We had to take this photo opportunity in front of a redbud tree - not something we often see now where we live.
Happy Spring and hopeful restoration of whatever needs Jesus’ touch in your life!
