Spring brings renewal year after year-regardless of which political party sits in office. There is one thing we can all rely on-the dawn of each new day is another chance to renew our relationship with God, another chance to strengthen our relationship with Him and live our lives differently.
God is key to renewing your life. If you are in touch with his Spirit, fresh energy will naturally flow through every part of your world. It doesn't matter which party is in power, whether there is a recession or any other difficulty, in cultivating your relationship with God your world will be renewed in remarkable ways.
We renew our lives by renewing our relationship with God. However we need to make room for him in our hearts by flushing out hate, fear, worry, resentment and tension; these things are poisonous to both the mind and the heart. Clear them out with thoughts of love and compassion to make way for His Spirit.
In many hours of coaching managers, letting go is the part everyone struggles with. Spring cleaning cupboards is far easier than cleaning out minds and hearts. There is grief in letting go of what belongs to the past. In letting God in to our hearts we can resolve this grief and make space for the person He wants us to be.
Renewal is a natural process and God will help us to achieve it. If we do not listen to him life declines, vitality ebbs and enthusiasm leaks away. Behaviour becomes negative, critical, mean and selfish. So now it is time : Close your eyes; pray to the Lord and let him clear out your heart renewed in his love. Begin this new season/day/year/life in his name.
You may even be unconcerned about who wins the election.
