It is officially Spring. I must admit that even though there is still snow on the ground, I am excited for the next season. Warmer weather, birds chirping and flowers appearing. Seasons may change, but God is always our constant.
March break provides a wonderful opportunity for our students, staff and teachers to rest and grow with God. It can also be a time to knock out some home projects that you have wanted to complete, make time to see friends and family, travel to a warmer destination or watch your favourite March Madness team in action (even if they lose in the second round).
Years ago, during this time, I took a trip to Tegucigalpa in Honduras to serve God’s people. One of the many things that I remember were the houses. So many houses were incomplete. During our Sunday service in church, our Pastor reminded me that even though these houses may never be finished, God will continue to keep building up our hearts stronger and stronger. He is always listening, and He never takes breaks. Maybe there were some things that you didn’t get to complete this week, but He will never leave us unfinished.
“Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, “I will never leave you nor forsake you.” Hebrews 13:5.
