I’m pretty sure it’s officially Spring here in Orlando.
Most of the trees never lose their leaves, but the ones that have are covered with fresh new growth.
I’ve made no bones about Fall being my favorite time of year, but Spring is a very close second.
The seasons are so incredibly symbolic of what I feel like the Lord does within us in and out of seasons.
God is always sure to prune me back in the “winter season” of my soul,
and it always seems painful at the time.
But, Spring always shows up…
with new growth, fresh dreams, and clear vision.
I love nothing more than cleaning out my physical house.
I can’t stand looking into closets and drawers that hold things that we don’t use anymore.
I really and truly only want to be surrounded by the things that inspire me and my family.
It doesn’t matter to me anymore if what I love is trendy or in style.
It only matters that when my family looks at it, our hearts smile and feel refreshed.
It’s the same way with my heart.
I need it good and cleaned out in every season.
I need God to evaluate the motives of my heart in marriage, parenting, friendships and life.
I need him to show me where I am to dedicate my time & energy.
What works in one season may not work in another.
I never want to be doing things that don’t bring joy & life.
Are you preparing for spring with some major house cleaning
in your home & in your heart?
