New life often begins in the spring. It can be a flower poking through or the first buds on a tree beginning to show. The signal of new life puts a bit of a bounce in your step and hope in your heart.
The promises of God’s faithfulness, love, and the hope of salvation do the same thing. The sight of an older couple holding hands as they walk or the awe that settles in at the birth of a child remind us of life to the full. Of the life God desires for us.
Yet at times in life we can feel trapped or stuck. The sense of bring lost or of simply being tired can rob us of seeing the life God offers. Thankfully in these seasons and timed of life we can rest into God and find renewal in His word. These experience become part of our story.
We are called to be disciples and to make disciples. When we share these stories of God’s promise and God’s hand in our lives, we are giving others a step towards God. It is through these stories of faith that God becomes more real for others. Be a good storyteller.
