10 Spring Essentials for the Christian Chic!

             10 Spring Essentials For the Christian Chic




      It is exciting to celebrate spring even when you live in Wisconsin and a snow storm is hitting here on April 27th! Here are 10 ways to add some Spring into your life and into your step!

1.  Spring is all about beautiful smells. Be a living Spring fragrance that others can smell the spiritual aroma from you. I have heard it smells of roses! In the bible its say,For we are to God the pleasing aroma of Christ” (2 Cor. 2:15). We can infuse ourselves with these sweet scents when we put on kindness, gentleness,joy, peace,self control,patience faithfulness and goodness. 


2. A bold flowery dress is all the rage now. The colors are bright and bold and force us to acknowledge that spring is here! I am personally  loving yellow right now.





3.   A Spring Book to read outside in nature as you hear the birds chirping or if you live in Wisconsin a time to snuggle up and keep warm and read during the Spring Snow Storms. I am currently reading a book, Isaiah's daughter by Mesu Andrews. It is a historical fiction book about the prophet Isaiah and is focused on his adopted daughter that falls in love with the king of Judah.If you are more into non-fiction I have been hearing great things about the Power of Habit. Anything from Francine Rivers is awesome!





4. Spring up your home with a spring wreath or some fresh tulips. 

Be glad, people of Zion,
    rejoice in the Lord your God,
for he has given you the autumn rains
    because he is faithful.
He sends you abundant showers,
    both autumn and spring rains, as before. Joel 2:23






5. Take a Spontaneous road trip and take in the beauty of the trees starting to bloom!


6. Do a Spring devotional. Here is a link to the free devotional, Seeds of Spring a 40 day devotional in Ephesians. Spring Devotional
plans/256-seeds-of-spring


7. Have a day out with some of your friends and catch a Christian movie, currently playing or  coming soon are, Unplanned, Breakthrough and Overcomer. I just saw God's not Dead 3, A Light in Darkness on Netflix recently. I loved this movie and thought it was quite appropriate with the political divide going on right now.



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 turtledove is heard in our land

Song of Solomon 2:11-12



8. Walk under the Cherry blossoms and enjoy the Lord's creation. 


9.  Keep Oil in your lamp. Even though it is Spring, there are Spiritual Seasons. What season is it now? In Mathew 24 v 32,33 We learn about the lesson from the Fig Tree.
The Lesson of the Fig Tree
32 “From the fig tree learn its lesson: as soon as its branch becomes tender and puts out its leaves, you know that summer is near. 33 So also, when you see all these things, you know that he is near, cat the very gates

.I think it is getting closer and closer to Jesus return. I think it is wise to study what the bible has to stay about the end times. Here is a link to a free devotional on the end times and about keeping your lamp in good condition.  End Time Bible Study LINK I love the old 70's Christian movie series about the end times, A thief in the Night. The most essential thing you can have this Spring is to have your lamp full of oil. If you want more help getting oil for your lamp this link will help you  How to get oil in your lamp LINK

10. Lastly Spring is a time of Love being in the air. Fall in love with the Word of God, you are his Delight. 


Run to him this Spring!
                                                                     Keep your lamp Glowing!
