Birth
Today is a new beginning. I am filled with hope and promise!

Springtime brings new birth—a beautiful reminder of the activity of God! Whether it is a sprout emerging from the soil, bursting into the light; a bird chipping out of the egg it once called home; or a baby taking its first breath, life is always unfolding. A newborn baby or a seedling for a mighty oak may seem weak and fragile, yet each is filled with immense potential.

Likewise, I am filled with promise and potential, and I let this day be a fresh start. As I release self-limiting thoughts and behaviors, I am reborn. Divine ideas seem to come to me from out of the blue. I am filled with hope as I breathe in the fresh air of this new day and feel fully alive.

In fulfillment of his own purpose he gave us birth by the word of truth, so that we would become a kind of first fruits of his creatures.—James 1:18
