Spring of Faith/Summer of Maturing

Spring is often celebrated as the season of new beginnings of growth and beauty.  Just as spring follows winter in the physical world, new growth and spring in our spiritual lives often comes “in the midst” of difficulty or unwelcome circumstances. 

This week we will be looking at a practical way we can listen to Jesus and receive from Him all that we need so that the difficult seasons are not wasted and can result in a spring of faith and a summer of maturity in Christ. 

Scriptures to consider: 1 Samuel 1 -2, Acts 4:1-14
