Can You Hear The Invitation?

The snow is melting here in Louisville, finally.

Queen Jadis has been defeated and Aslan is shaking his mane, causing ripples of life to spread throughout the land! Birds are singing and green things are growing again. The power and providence of God is new everywhere.

As you walk through it all, what is the invitation that you hear from God?

Get up, my dear friend,
    fair and beautiful lover—come to me!

Look around you: Winter is over;
    the winter rains are over, gone!

Spring flowers are in blossom all over.
    The whole world’s a choir—and singing!

Spring warblers are filling the forest
    with sweet arpeggios.

Lilacs are exuberantly purple and perfumed,
    and cherry trees fragrant with blossoms.

Oh, get up, dear friend,
    my fair and beautiful lover—come to me!

Come, my shy and modest dove—
    leave your seclusion, come out in the open.

Let me see your face,
    let me hear your voice.

For your voice is soothing
    and your face is ravishing. (Song of Solomon 2:10-14 MSG)
