Can you feel the spring in the air? Does it bring a spring to your step? 

A lot of us get excited when spring arrives because we know we are one step closer to summer and the holiday season. Let’s take a moment and think about the changes God creates in nature during the spring season. There is an increase in the daylight hours and the ground temperatures warm causing snow to defrost, and run into the streams that overflow into the lakes and sea. There is a clear demonstration of new life around us with the birth of animals, and blossoming trees. 

We too can make changes in our lives by taking a leaf out of nature’s book. The start of spring is the perfect opportunity to make a conscious effort to ready our body, soul and spirit for the months ahead. For many, spring is a serious motivator to get back to the gym and ready our bodies for the beach and summer activities. For others it is a time to plant vegetables, or spring clean the house.

Like in nature, the choices we make today in our spiritual lives for positive change can create rejuvenation, new spiritual growth, and cause living waters to swell up within our lives and overflow to those around us.Just as the orientation of the earth’s axis tilts and brings our little New Zealand town closer in relation to the sun, now is the season to lean in closer to the Son. 

If you make the choice today to spring-clean your body, soul, and spirit, and create habits that bring new growth, it will draw you closer to your creator and the life He predestined for you.

Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old. I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it? I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert. - Isaiah 43:18-19

Live life in full bloom,

Wherever you are planted.
