Who doesn't love spring?
The soil warms, and all of nature wakes up and comes to life. I can't wait to dig my hands into some rich, dark earth as I plant our fall garden, and I pray for a larger harvest than last year. (Frankly, anything would be an improvement on that, but moving along ... )
I don't know about you, but I find that I often experience these seasons in my soul and spirit. Sometimes when winter hits, the sudden cold literally kills a plant. Some are too sensitive to extreme temperature and cannot survive in cold weather.
One thing I have found that helps me to insulate my heart and keep it from dying in those seasons when it seems like I'm cold and lifeless is Scripture memorization. It is essential that we go beyond knowing about God and about the Bible to really knowing God personally and knowing His Word intimately.
It's time to get the whole family involved in memorizing God's Word.
