SPRING!

Has your spiritual life been in a season of “Winter?”  Have you felt that you have been in a time of inactivity or a time of slumber?  Have you snuggled into that place of comfort and found yourself not wanting to venture into the unknown?

Well!  It is a NEW SEASON!  Today is the first day of SPRING!  It is a time when you will see NEW LIFE begin to erupt in your ministry and in your church!  A time of NEW GROWTH, STRONGER GROWTH, and FOCUSED GROWTH has arrived!  The spiritual “seeds” in your life that have been covered and hidden until the right time are beginning to emerge!

Do not be discouraged if the Lord is still pruning you – taking away all of those things that are keeping you from having the healthy, abundant growth that He desires in your life. This pruning will make way for the new growth.  EMBRACE THE PRUNING!

It is time to open your arms wide; turn and lift your face towards the Light of Jesus;  allow the Living Water of the Holy Spirit to flow in you and from you; and breathe in the life-giving breath of God!

Are you ready to leave Winter behind and step into Spring?  It is a choice, a commitment, and a FAITH step!  REACH FOR THE LIGHT AND GROW!!

“For once you were full of darkness, but now you have light from the Lord.  So live as people of light!  For this light within you produces only what is good and right and true.”    (Ephesians 5z:7-9  NLT)

Use His Gift!

YOU have received a special gift from the Lord!

We are told to employ it…to use it…in order to serve one another and for God to be glorified! What gift are you using for the body of Christ and for our Lord’s glory?

Don’t think that your gift is not needed or not as great as others! You are special and unique and the Holy Spirit will empower you to use His gift within you to build up and strengthen the body of Christ!

Glorify the Lord by using your gift for Him today!

Look for opportunities…

ATTITUDE

“You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you.” [Brian Tracy]

Oh Lord! Help us to walk in a right attitude! Help us to be a people that walk in the fruit of the Spirit. May we allow the Holy Spirit to bear His fruit through us. We can’t do it on our own, Lord! We need YOU!!

“…the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.” Galatians‬ ‭5:22-23‬ ‭ESV‬‬
