Spring offers a unique perspective into God's thoughts. As the time of newness arrives, we can sit outside and breathe in the beauty. God authors new beginnings in nature and in people. He gives us the call of the mockingbird, the ripple of a brook, the fragrance of a rose--all things we can't control--to give us pleasure, peace and purpose. How like God to remind us that joy comes in not controlling things. Our control brings contamination, confusion and cost. With this spring, I search for fresh insight and help.
Lord, help me to release control. Only through you can I find true happiness.
