That’s the way we change the clock when daylight savings begins. Spring is also a season when we may be moving forward to new places, new people, new experiences.. changes that produce growth and stretch us.. not always easy. I am basically a person who longs for stability.. a place to call home.. a plateau.. a resting place. The last 10 years of my life have been full of change.. more changes than I ever imagined or expected. I am weary.. yet I know that change is much healthier than being stuck..not moving.. settling.. stagnating…. not very attractive words.
God is always moving. He is always active. He is always doing new things in us and around us. He is not passive. He initiates continually and asks us to join with Him as He unfolds new adventures..directs us in new directions. Life with God is never boring.. never the same day after day after day. Life with God is always new.. always changing and sometimes draining! He is creative and life-giving. His plans are mysterious and are only revealed a step at a time. There is no road map with Him.. His desire is to teach us to walk with Him daily.. enjoying the journey because He is our safety net.
Are you being asked to take a risk with Him? To venture out with Him? To leave the comfort of your present circumstances? Is He pursuing you with a temptation to start a new adventure with Him? Are you afraid? Worried? Stuck? He will take the leap with you. He is going to hold on to you while you jump.. He will catch you when you fall. His ways are mysterious but His character is not. He is good. He loves you. He will never abandon you. He will rescue you. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow. Spring Forward !
“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble they will never fall.”
