Spring is a time all look forward to because it is a symbol of renewal and rebirth. Each Fall and winter our world dies, but it is eventually reborn in spring. Therefore spring speaks of hope.
The Bible teaches that just as the seasons come and go (Eccl 3:1-2), life is continually changing. Sometimes we enjoy our summer days and sometimes we are faced with the cold dread of winter (Job 14:1). It is during those “winter” days of life that we need to hold onto hope and remember, “Spring is just around the corner.”
God has promised to help us weather the storms of life (1 Cor 10:13; Heb 13:5) and has given us an Eternal Spring to look forward to one day. Take heart in knowing that Winter will not last forever.
"Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal" (2 Corinthians 4:16-18).
