There’s something about springtime that is absolutely exhilarating. Plant life that has been lying dormant for months comes to life all around us. In a matter of days our world transforms from one with dull earth tones to one that is full of vibrant color all around.
We learned in elementary school the reasons for why our world transforms through the seasons. In order for our landscapes to come alive they must be closer to the resource (the sun) that allows them to grow.
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.
In the same way that the earth comes alive through the sun, WE come alive when we draw closer to The Son. Our Father wants to “do a new thing” in us, but it is up to us to draw near to him to allow it. If we are to bloom to our full potential we must fully rely on Him.
