Most people prefer winter over summer, because they don't like having to stay inside, or the bleakness. Let's do something different. Instead of complaining to God about how much we want spring to come, let's thank Him for winter.
To me, winter symbolizes our life without Christ. Our lives were bleak and empty, and we weren't truly alive. Spring represents the new life we experience when we become Christians. We see the beauty around us, and God's grace and love.
The crazy thing is, we wouldn't appreciate the beauty of spring as much if we didn't have to go through winter! As spring approaches, don't just wish yourself away to the future. Thank God for every moment of winter, and live every day for Him!
