April showers bring May flowers

April showers bring May flowers

We have all heard this saying and even repeat it every year. I like to think of the literal rain in spiritual terms too. During seasons of rain, we are refreshed, cleansed and encouraged in our walk with Jesus. The rainy season jump starts seeds into the germination stage where they begin to grow into a stalk and soon a fruitful plant. The outer shell is opened so that new life can emerge from within the seed.

Spiritually, are we receiving the spring rain of refreshment? Are we allowing the hard case that covers the seed of our heart to be open to the newness of the Holy Spirit? Are we letting the seedbed of our lives to be germinated into new things by the power of His grace? We are in a new season of the year by the calendar and a new season by the Spirit. Behold, He makes all things new. Do you perceive it?

I pray that we are able to receive the rain and burst forth with new life!
