We see these changes in our lives as well. They may not follow closely to the seasons of nature, but we still have seasons. Have you attended a seminar and walked away motivated to change a part of your life or an approach to something at work?
How many of you have decided that now is the time to eat healthier and get your bodies in better shape for a trip to the beach this summer? You have been dormant during the winter and it is now time to get some new life. I relate it to trying to put the bad parts of the past season behind us. I am glad that the cold winter weather is gone.
Think about some of the bad habits that you have and you want to shed. Now is a good time to concentrate on developing better habits. How have you treated your co-workers lately? Do you treat them with respect? Do you lend a helping hand when needed or an ear during times of struggle? Now would be the perfect time to change the season in our relationships with our teammates.
In the third chapter of Ecclesiastes it says "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." We can look to God for direction in our lives. Where does He want us to change? What are His expectations in the next season?
I looked at the weather forecast for next week and it calls for another chance for snow. Even though we are in a new season, sometimes part of the past season comes back temporarily. This happens in our lives as well. We start into the new season and then something from the past comes back to discourage us. Stay positive. Just like spring time, there will be more pleasant days than cold ones.
What are you doing this spring to make a positive change in your life? Leave your comments below so we can learn from each other.
