What Does the Bible Say About Springtime?

Spring is a time of year that often brings to mind renewal and fresh starts. During winter, we may hole up in our homes, away from the cold weather. But when spring comes, many people open their doors and windows, let in the outside air and engage in spring cleaning — a way of clearing out the winter doldrums and beginning again, even if it's only with a clean house.

While many of the maintenance tasks are handled by staff at Bethesda Gardens in Arlington, seniors may find that spring is an ideal time to declutter their assisted living apartments and rearrange items to suit their needs.

It's also a great time to declutter yourself mentally and spiritually, and to help with that, here are three Bible verses dealing with spring.

Deuteronomy 32:2

Let my teaching fall like rain and my words descend like dew, like showers on new grass, like abundant rain on tender plants.

The Word of the Lord can bring revival — a sort of spiritual spring — at any time. The teachings of God are like rain on seedlings, causing leaves to open and flowers to bud during a spring celebration or recommitment. And one of the best things about this spiritual spring born from God's Word is that it can come at any time during life — and even multiple times in a life — so seniors can look toward the Bible for this type of renewal.

James 5:7

Be patient, then, brothers and sisters, until the Lord’s coming. See how the farmer waits for the land to yield its valuable crop, patiently waiting for the autumn and spring rains.

This verse reminds us that God's timing, like the timing of seasons and storms, is not our own. Sometimes, we have to wait patiently for what we want or for circumstances to change. For those who patiently wait through the winter, spring always arrives. And those who patiently wait on the Lord in this life receive their reward — if not on this earth, then in Heaven.

Hosea 6:3

Let us acknowledge the LORD; let us press on to acknowledge him. As surely as the sun rises, he will appear; he will come to us like the winter rains, like the spring rains that water the earth.

We can't stop the seasons from changing or life from marching forward, and that can be difficult to deal with. Perhaps you don't look forward to the hot days of summer or you're dealing with loss in your life and wish for the days of past years. No matter what changes you're struggling with, you can trust that God is ever present and never changing; as sure as the sun will rise, he is with you.
