I saw this photo in my files this morning. It was a picture I took several years ago of a cardinal in my backyard. Reminds me of the coming spring which I am looking forward too. Spring time brings the beauty of new birth, life, growth, and a wonderful color explosion from the flowers.
As we look ahead to spring, we must remind ourselves of several wonderful truths.
1. Enjoy today – it is a gift from God. Too often we spend too much time wishing for something to come and do not enjoy the presence. Rejoice in the day the Lord has given to you and me.
Psalms 118:24 KJV “This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.”
2. See the beauty surrounding you today – smiles, laughs, presence of those you love, sun shining, clouds, sun rise, and sunsets. Enjoy the full moon tonight.
Psalms 19:1 KJV “The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament sheweth his handywork.”
3. Be satisfied with the blessings from God. Some people are never satisfied; they are constantly asking for more and more. We must be content.
1 Timothy 6:6–8 KJV “6:6 But godliness with contentment is great gain.
6:7 For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.
6:8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.”
4. Make a conscious effort to make a difference in someone’s life today. A word spoken at the right time can make a huge difference in one’s life.
Proverbs 25:11 KJV “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in pictures of silver.”
Have a great day! May God bless you!
