Spring Is Near: Intertwining Your Faith with Everyday Life

You can tell that spring is near because the weather is getting warmer. The time has changed, and I'm enjoying the longer daylight hours. The trees and other plants have begun to sprout new leaves, and pollen is everywhere. Our rose bushes are beautiful, and soon vibrant colors will be everywhere. The air smells different, and there is a sense of energy and vitality after a long and dormant winter.

From my office window, I can see more people walking and riding bikes in the neighborhood, and the birds are chirping loudly. It's a beautiful time of the year in Florida. Spring is when everything is new - new growth, renewal, and rejuvenation. The season of spring brings hope, new beginnings, and opportunities.

For me, it is the best time of the year. It's a time when you start to watch what you have planted during the cold winter months begin to bloom.

"For behold, the winter is past; the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtledove is heard in our land." —Song of Solomon 2:11-12

Have you prepared for the spring? Has God planted a dream or a longing in your heart that you're starting to see come to fruition? I pray you have prepared for whatever God has placed in your heart! It's never too late to accomplish his plan.

  • Growing with purpose. "so that you may walk in a manner worthy of the Lord and may please Him in every way: bearing fruit in every good work, growing in the knowledge of God," Colossians 1:10 NKJV

  • God plants your dreams. “We can make our plans, but the Lord determines our steps.” Proverbs 16:9 NLT

  • Enjoy life. "This is the day which the Lord hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it." Psalms 118:24 KJV

By reading and practicing the above scriptures…over time, I’ve been learning how to incorporate Christ into every area of my life.

Below are two books that God has inspired me to write. "The Flip Side" and "Blinded By Sight: The Heart Matters" both available now.

So… what’s this book about?

“The Flip Side” depicts the possible feelings and emotions of lesser-known Biblical characters as they navigated their lives in the shadows of the more popular characters in the Bible. While the Bible gives us snippets of their stories, we are usually left in the dark about their true motives, desires, and thoughts concerning the situations they are in. However, one certainty is that despite how little we know about these characters, they were often the catalysts to pivotal moments in the main characters’ lives.

So… what’s this book about?

Join me on a journey of self-discovery. “Blinded by Sight - The Heart Matters” is a compilation of short biblical devotions. These stories are not conclusive. They are depictions of how God is revealing my heart to me.

My prayer is, Lord, make it real for me, show me your heart, show me my heart, and give me the wisdom to change what hinders my relationship with you. I am learning that my perception is my biggest obstacle it affects my mind, what I think, and how I process my experiences. What I have experienced in my mind is expressed through my feelings and these experiences dictate my choices either consciously or subconsciously.

This devotional will allow you to explore and evaluate your past and present situations that have hindered you from seeing the heart of the matter. Simply put, look at the heart – it does matter. Your future depends on it!

I sought the Lord, and he answered me; he delivered me from all my fears. Psalms 34:4
