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!
