Spring Is In The Air

There is a fresh crisp earthy smell as I open my windows in the spring. It's amazing how this lifts my soul. It sends me back to my younger years and how great it was to finally be able to play outside without winter gear and hop in an odd puddle here or there.

No worries,
No fear...
Just to be outside in Nature and exploring. Finding new growth as I walked along and the promise of the newness all around me.

The Birds are chirping and with the wind in my face, God feels nearer, and this rejuvenates my soul. I take an even deeper breath and fill my lungs with this crisp spring air and I feel again, God is near. Everything else just fades away, as I close my eyes and tilt my head until I feel the sun on my face. God is Near. 

We are seeing signs all around us of spring, but not just of spring, but that God is near. We see signs of Christ soon coming more and more each day. It's time to get ready. It's time to start the Spring cleaning of our hearts and reflect more on Christ and his love. We Need to have Christ shining out of us so that we can bring as many people to Christ as we can. During our spring cleaning of our hearts, we may have feelings of being ; overwhelmed, Scared, unprepared, Unworthy, not good enough...and the list can be endless. Cast your worries aside and give them all to Christ. He will take your burdens, he will forgive our sins if we ask him too, He will take away our worries and Replace them with Courage. All we have to do is ask and surrender to Christ and He will create in us a clean heart...and He will fill us with his love, peace and understanding.  


Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

2 Corinthians 5:17 NIV


Take a step outside, Take a deep breath in, Tilt your head towards the heavens and while closing your eyes, ask God to fill your heart and cleanse it from all unrighteousness. Continue in prayer as you talk to your heavenly father...While the sun shines down on your face imagine that God is Near. Surrender to God and he will fill your soul , he will guide you in your spring cleaning of your heart.
