Spring is a time of new life sprouting forth from the soil. After Winter, Spring feels like a fresh start. When it comes to the seasons of the soul, sometimes we could all use a second chance. A new beginning!
The good news is, one of the central themes of the Bible is the fresh start we can have in Christ. God makes beauty out of brokenness. He takes dry bones and brings them to life with his resurrection power. If you're looking for a chance at a fresh start, we pray that you'll be encouraged by the Scripture we've included below.
