This morning I was gently reminded by the sun, that spring is actually here. Even though our basketball season kept me busy this winter, occasionally I had these bouts of restlessness and sadness that were new feelings to me. I was eager to get back to doing projects at the house and fixing up the yard, but my bones hated the cold weather. With that came a lack of inspiration and a lack of motivation.
Our God is amazing though. When I needed that pick-me-up, He sent me this verse from Genesis 8:22.
While the earth remains, seedtime and harvest, cold and heat, summer and winter, day and night, shall not cease.
Yes, it may be cold and gray outside, but life still goes on, and He wants us to remember that He is still giving us life. He is still blessing us with an amazing amount of mercy and grace. And we should still be serving him and worshiping Him.
With encouragement from a dear friend, I started the Naptime Diaries Lent journal and through it, God has lifted my spirits so much. The journal has become a great transition out of the winter season into spring, constantly reminding me of the blessings stowed upon me on those cold days that I hated so much.
Spring is here and His blessings continue to abound.
