It was a long time coming but Spring seems to have arrived. Along with it comes something common to nature and to people, a more upbeat atmosphere. Colours become more vivid, activity becomes swifter and the ambience much more lighter. Spring brings a spring to the step.
Or at least it should do. Too many people seem locked into a grey, monotonous, wintery existence where any glimmer of a brighter tomorrow seems to be extinguished before it arrives. Describing our lives as becoming brighter or lighter is surely a foolish notion.
But perhaps its time to to make a brave decision. To end a season. Perhaps it’s time to step out of your personal winter and place a foot into that brighter tomorrow. I have seen people transform like this; but never on their own. A new life only comes through discovering the God who controls all seasons. By following the one who gives life we can make a daring step into a transformed season, where hope, purpose, love & acceptance grow like Spring flowers.
Along with countless others I believe that transformation is available for all, because God is available for all. Why not visit a lively local church this weekend & ask some questions
