"New Beginnings - A Time to Plant"
Acrylic on Canvas

God's springtime is  a time for new beginnings and new growth.  It is production time, the beginnings of the manifestations of Gods promise in your life.  There’s hope and expectation, new opportunities.  It is a time for sowing and planting, and for new growth to emerge and all you have to do is stand and wait for your flower to come into full bloom. 

Eight is the number of new beginnings, we are new creations in Christ Jesus. 
When Jesus came up out of the tomb He was the new beginning.  He is the head of a new creation people.  His Kingdom is being revealed on this earth, awakening to the sound and fragrance of heaven. 

Colossians 1 v18

“And He is the head of the body of the church, who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in all things He may have the pre-eminence.”

Believing in Jesus, who has the pre-eminence in everything.  Jesus is the head of the body, the church, and He rose up from the grave that we may follow him in resurrection life.

John 1 v1-5

1 “In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God, and the word was God.

2 He was in the beginning with God.

3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made.

4 In Him was life and the life was the light of men.

5 And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it”.

Genesis 1 v1

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.”

The number 8 represents circumcision of the heart through Christ and the receiving of the Holy Spirit.
Those in Christ are becoming a new creation with His character being created by the power of God’s spirit. 
By God’s grace and love we will be given a new beginning, as promised in God’s Word. 

A time of new beginnings is a time of singing, fruitfulness and a blossoming time.  We can enjoy the sweetness of his presence and the fragrance of His Word.

Song of Solomon 2 V11-13
11 " For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone.
12 The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land.
13 The fig tree puts forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grapes give a good smell.  Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away!"

Also the scripture from Revelation 22 v2 “The leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations”. 

This is a time for healing and restoration.  New growth is coming forth.   Thank you Jesus for living in us.
