The Six Best Things About Springtime

I love springtime! Most of us do. Here are the six best things about springtime.

  1. The Masters Golf Tournament
  2. Everything is trending upward. The temperatures, sunshine, flowers, daylight…and even our mood.
  3. The Masters Golf Tournament.
  4. The smell of freshly cut grass (at least for a time or two).
  5. The Masters Golf Tournament.
  6. Spring symbolizes a fresh start.

Springtime should remind us that God also gives fresh starts. The Bible is full of examples of God giving people second chances.

Lamentations 3:23 puts it this way.

Great is his faithfulness; his mercies begin afresh each morning.

Are you in need of a fresh start? With a problem you’re facing? With a relationship (seeking forgiveness or reconciliation)? With a healthy lifestyle (remember The Daniel Plan)? With a mistake you’ve made? With a habit you need to break? In your spiritual walk?

Springtime is a great reminder that God is just waiting to give us a fresh start. His mercies are new each morning!

Whatever it takes,
