Which is why when I saw this month's Peony Project prompt was renew, I knew I had to join in. When I think of renew, I think of spring...when the flowers are just starting to poke their heads out of the snow, the days get warmer, the snow begins to melt and the streams begin to flow again. I think of something broken being made whole again.
I love that as a Christian, renew means that Lord makes me whole again. One of my very favorite Bible verses, and my life verse for the last few years-- Isaiah 40:31--speaks about this very best kind of renewal.
But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
It's such an encouragement for me to know that when I'm downhearted and spent with the affairs of life, He is always there to renew my strength.
WHAT DOES RENEW MEAN TO YOU?
