This is what I beheld yesterday as I ran.
It’s just some trees lining the edge of the road you may be thinking.
I used to only see that too.
But yesterday, I saw purple, mixed with green.
I’ve been seeing purple everywhere these days.

Purple represents royalty.
It’s also the mixture of blue and red, which represent the love of God and the blood of Jesus.
Yes, purple is important for me to see.
Because there for a while, all I could see were my failures.
The bare and bleak “limbs” of my life that looked all but dead.
My thoughts were bombarded with a sense of guilt and shame.
Does God still love me? I wondered.
Yes, I should totally know better, but I still wondered.
When you go through things, especially in the winter seasons of life, it can leave you with a “sense” of separation.
The pruning process of God isn’t pleasant, but it’s purposeful, and it will bring forth color in its season.
Lots of it.
The dead things in our life choke out the color.
We become blinded by our own perception.
When we listen to our “senses” instead of what God said, and we walk blinded.
The Truth is, He always saw me through the purple.
The green I saw represents healing and new beginnings…
can I get a Hallelujah?
Is anyone else ready for a new season?
A season of fruitfulness and color?
The Word of God promises us a fresh start,
Not just every season.
So, take heart my friend.
If the pruning process has left you blinded by your perception of God’s Love for you, look at this scripture and see it through His colored lenses. Start a fresh day today.
|It is of the LORD’S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.|
