Let Spring Be Here

 By Jeff Roman
Wow have we finally seen the end of winter???!!!!
    Song of Solomon 2:11-12. For behold, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear on the earth, the time of singing has come, and the voice of the turtle dove is heard in our land.
    Finally was able to drag the boat out of the garage as I have been preparing it for the last several weeks to be ready for this day. Wasn’t planning on going far or be out long just want the opportunity to be out on a 60° day. Drove out of town to the usual boat ramp on that long stretch of the canal that is very popular among us locals and even popular for some not so close. This little stretch out here has gotten a reputation for holding some very nice bass throughout the year. I was amazed when I pulled up there, there was only one other boat in the water. There sat the lone trailer in the parking lot. It wouldn’t be that way before I left. There will be a few more who will have arrived. It was late morning and the sun was already high and what a beautiful day it started out to be. The only bad thing was there was an east wind and it is Sunday. And as we all know the fish don’t bite on the seventh day. LOL. I’m not sure how many other fishermen are out there that believe the same thing. You’ve heard all the stories all week long how people are tearing them up and then on the one day that you’re able to get out there they are just not biting. And that was holding true for today too. But what a great day it was just to be out. The equipment in the boat was all in order. Rods and reels we’re ready to be used. Tackle had all been organized and was in place and readily accessible. We have done our due diligence. We have put in the time and the effort to be ready for this. Boy, does spring feel good!
   Hosea 6:3. Let us know, let us press on to know the Lord. His going out is sure as the dawn, he will come to us as the showers, as the spring rains that water the earth. 
    Is your spring ready for God?? Have you been doing what you need to do to draw yourself closer to Him. Have you been learning more about him, and what he can do for you as you prepare yourself for him? 
Sometimes winter is hard on us for many reasons. Winter takes away our focus on many things and sometimes it takes away our focus on Him too. Spring is here and spring brings us new things. Brings back to life many things that have been dead and gone for a while. Spring can also bring us back to him. Let’s be doing what we can be doing to learn more and develop our walk and relationship with him.
      Genesis 1:14 and God said,” let there be light and the expanse of the heavens to separate the day from the night. And let them be for signs and for seasons, and for days and years,”
        Spring fishing is a wonderful time. 
But if you want an awesome time, get to know your God!!
