People who love to dig in the soil feel an urge around February to get into their gardens. Their hands need to be in the earth. However, until winter turns to spring, they must content themselves with repotting house plants.
In the spiritual realm we sometimes feel a similar urge to get digging, to get growing. “The love of Christ impels us,” we read in Scripture and feel this urge in our hearts as our spiritual winter thaws. May such moments urge us to wonder, “What more do you want of me, Lord?”
