Spring has Sprung

20160313_133908_resizedSpring has sprung where I live. What used to be brown is quick­ly turn­ing green. Daf­fodils are emerg­ing and bright­en­ing the land­scape every­where I go.

I think it’s tru­ly fas­ci­nat­ing that God cre­at­ed the sea­sons to not only mark time but as part of the cycle of life. It’s a rebirth of things that had died on the sur­face. The weath­er changes and new life is all about us.

Per­son­al­ly, I don’t like win­ter very much. I nev­er have. I prob­a­bly nev­er will. But I know that win­ter is a nec­es­sary part of the cycle.  With­out win­ter, all of nature would be over­grown.

How­ev­er, spring and sum­mer are a dif­fer­ent sto­ry. I love the new life and rapid growth that takes place. It is refresh­ing. They both have a dif­fer­ent pur­pose than win­ter. They are a time of growth and pro­duc­tiv­i­ty.

Our lives are full of chang­ing sea­sons just like nature. We are born and go through child­hood count­ing the days until we cross over into adult­hood. In adult­hood our lives are marked with sea­sons. Sea­sons of good times and bad. Highs and lows.

I want to chal­lenge each of you to take a moment and go out­side. Look at the amount of new growth all around you and take stock of the new growth in your own life.

If you can’t find new growth in your life, per­haps it’s time to reeval­u­ate. Reeval­u­ate your life.  The only things that don’t bring forth new growth are things that are tru­ly dead, no just on the sur­face, but deep with­in! So how are you grow­ing today? I would love to hear from you in the com­ments!
