Spring Renewal

Ahh, the beginning of a new season.  Each Spring brings about a new beginning...trees begin to bud new leaves, grass starts turning green, flowers begin sprouting out of the ground.  Colors emerge forth...life begins again.

I am also beginning to emerge from the ground, so to speak.  I have been in this stagnent place Spiritually, waiting to be revived.  I feel a stirring in my Spirit, a newness coming about.  It's exciting!!

I will be attending my first online conference this week...it's called "A Woman Inspired: Get Revived"  I'm excited to go, I need to be revived!  I see the glimpses of new things on the horizions...God has called me to move into a deeper relationship with Him.

This week is Spring break for my boys, however, they are going to enjoy their Spring break at Grandma and Grandpa's, allowing me to have a few days to myself.  I'll be doing some Spring Cleaning...of the Spiritual kind.  It couldn't have come at a better time either, right before Easter.

As the Steven Curtis Chapman's song Dive goes:

The long-awaited rains have fallen hard upon the thirsty ground
Have carved their way to where the wild and rushing river can be found
And like the rains I have been carried here to where the river flows, yeah
My heart is racin' and my knees are weak as I walk to the edge
I know there is no turning back once my feet have left the ledge
And in the rush I hear a voice, it's telling me it's time to
Take the leap of faith
So here I go

I'm diving in
I'm going deep
In over my head I wanna be
Caught in the rush
Lost in the flow
In over my head I wanna go
The river's deep
The river's wide
The river's water is alive
So sink or swim
I'm diving in
I'm diving in

There is a supernatural power in this mighty river's flow
It can bring the dead to life, and it can fill an empty soul
And give a heart the only thing worth livin' and worth dyin' for, yeah
But we will never know the awesome power of the grace of God
Until we let ourselves get swept away into this holy flood
So if you'll take my hand, we'll close our eyes and count to three
And take the leap of faith
Come on let's go

I'm going to Dive in!
