Springtime in the Heart

Behold, I will do a new thing,

Now it shall spring forth;

Shall you not know it?

I will even make a road in the wilderness

And rivers in the desert.

Isaiah 43 v 19

Spring is a  season  of warming weather and nature coming back to life. As flowers blossom and animals are born, we are reminded of the innocence and beauty that exists in this world and that there is new life all around us. We hope also that as the vaccination programme takers affect, it will herald a new beginning for our hurting world.

As Christians, we are given new life and new mercies every morning. We serve a God who is faithful in every season of life! Spring provides a wonderful reminder to us that we can experience new beginnings  There is always hope during the coldest, darkest winters of life. Vernon Grounds, a bible  commentator,  points out that  we must never forget that the Source that makes everything green is Jesus Christ our blessed Saviour. He is the One who gives “living water,” which becomes “a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life” (John 4 v 10, 14)

If we  have responded to the gospel and personally received Jesus Christ as  our Saviour, then we  have that fountain springing up within our  soul (John 7 v 37 – 38). What a privilege!

Perhaps we need a spiritual spring clean where old habits are led aside and new attitudes developed?

I end with the words of a popular song from the 1970’s:

When in the spring, the flowers are blooming bright and fair,

After the grey of winter’s gone.

Once again the lark begins his tuning,

Back in the meadows of my heart.

Lord, to my heart bring back the springtime.

Take away the cold and dark of sin.

And, Oh refill me now, sweet Holy Spirit:

May I warm and tender be again.

Lord, make me like that stream that flows so cool and clear

Down from the mountains high above;

I will tell the world the wondrous story

Of the precious stream filled with your Love.

Lord, to my heart bring back the springtime.

Take away the cold and dark of sin.

And, Oh refill me now, sweet Holy Spirit:

May I warm and tender be again.
