The weather outside makes me want to jump up and down, wear lots of colors, dance through puddles and smile. Sunshine is definitely magic to the soul! It never ceases to amaze me how spring comes. Winter seems to drag on forever, and I always begin to wonder if the sun will ever come back to play. And year after year, right when I least expect it, the sunshine starts dancing, the temperature starts rising and you can just smell a change in the air. I love spring because it always feels like a promise. A promise of new things to come, adventures, and hope.
Hope, where would we be without it? Sometimes in life, it feels as though all hope is gone. You come up against a problem and everything seems impossible. You wonder if you will ever get around, through or past the mountain in your way. And yet, just when you are about to give up to the impossible, the light shines and suddenly you have the strength to keep moving on.
And that is what spring reminds me off. It reminds me that God is good and that He never leaves us without hope. We all go through seasons of winter in our lives, times that seem impossible. But it is these times, that allow us to better appreciate the spring. They remind us to keep moving on because God has good things ahead for us. And, if we can just hold on and trust in Him, the spring will come.
So, if you are at a time of winter, don't give up. Do you feel alone? don't give up. Are you tired? Don't give up. Are you afraid? Don't give up--Seek His face no matter what you feel, and trust in Him. And soon, a warm spring breeze will begin to dance across your face. A promise... and hope begins to grow.
But Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.”
Nothing is impossible, the word itself says, "I'm Possible."
