Seasons : Spring

Spring is a season for renewal and regrowth. For birth. It's when things start to come alive and burst forth in glorious display. What was once dead now thrives with life. 

Spring is a time when you once again come alive. When those dead bones dance in freedom and weary soul is refreshed with spring rain. It's a beautiful season of life that holds abundant goodness and blessing.

Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.
— Isaiah 43:18-19

If you're coming out of a barren winter, it's time to step forward and leave that time behind. Instead, look around and see what God is starting to do. He is beginning something new--something different than anything else you've been through before.

God is making a way!

If you've been in a hard season but see hope ahead, step forward. Embrace the new life breaking forth and soak up what God wants to do in your life. This is a great season in life; one to be celebrated. Stop going over the old and instead rejoice in the new!

I know you might be thinking, "Brittany, that's easier said than done." I know, I know! It can be hard to let go of the pain or forget about the hardship. But flourishing in the Spring means leaving the past behind. It means finding a way to heal (check out this reading plan on how to heal). It means living in the freedom God is extending to you. Find your way into the sunlight, my friend.

If you're in this season, be oh so grateful. These seasons are sweet like the budding flowers but won't last forever so cherish the abundance God has you in. Always be sure to give thanks and celebrate what God is doing in your life. Give Him all the glory!
