The Springtime of the Soul

In Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians chapter five and verse seventeen he wrote, “If anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has gone, the new has come.  As the signs of spring are gathering around us, I am praying for many to experience a “springtime of their soul”.  God speaks to us this time of year of new beginnings.  It is interesting that the Resurrection of Christ during the season of Passover corresponds for the people of that day and of our own with the springtime.  To be sure there are places on the globe where this is not true.   However, in the land where Jesus lived, and in the land where we live, we have the added message of the glory of springtime to call our hearts to new life.  For some this could be the first springtime of new life in Jesus Christ.  People are coming to Jesus all around us.  Perhaps many more may yet come to Him in this glorious season of the year.  For others this may be a time of refreshing.  There can be new springtimes in the soul when we return to the Lord after a long, cold winter of wandering from Him.  With all of the rain we have enjoyed, this is going to be a beautiful spring in Texas.   Join me in praying for a moving of God’s Spirit that is even more beautiful.  If God can clothe the fields with flowers, He can make something beautiful of your life.
