Springtime is refreshing. Spring brings a sense of renewed vitality and expectation for what the summer has to bring. When I see the crocuses and tulips poking through the dirt in front of my home, I am again renewed with that urgency of the upcoming summer.
Where do your opportunities lye? When spring ‘peeks through the dirt’, do you also feel refreshed and rejuvenated toward your upcoming goals? Spring flowers can symbolize new life, and not just literal life, but the fullness of life.
The wonderful difference between spring flowers and the opportunities we find is that spring flowers pass away to make way for another season but opportunities to do God’s work are endless! There are no age limitations to being used by God. He reminds us in 1 Timothy 4:12 “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” And for the older he reminds us in Titus 2:4 that the older women are to teach what is good. We are to take what we have learned and pass on that wisdom and example to the younger (same goes for the men).
We all have future opportunities ahead of us if we decide to grasp hold of them. So do not be discouraged, allow the sight and smell of spring flowers be your reminder that life is constantly renewed and refreshed. Take hold of what lies ahead and be encouraged!
