SPRING IS ON THE MARCH!

Spring is happening - in Matlock trees have been in bud for a while, the birds are getting vocal, the snowdrops and crocuses are doing their stuff and the early daffodils are on the way! Isn't it amazing - the power these small, bright, fresh signs of life have to 'lift our spirits' after winter?

And wouldn't it be just great if, like the trees and spring bulbs, we could shake off the wear and tear of our previous years to emerge looking and feeling all fresh and beautiful?

Sadly, all the life coaches and self-help books in the world can't achieve that - but we can achieve something even better!

God promises each one of us something better than mere 'physical improvement':
"I will give you a new heart and put a new spirit in you."
It's a real cause for celebration - total, lifelong, renewing of your spirit - not just a temporary 'lift'.

But there's no such thing as a free dinner, right? Is this really a 'gift'? What's the catch?

You have to accept the gift on God's terms. It's not hard - even a child can do it - but doing it your own way destroys any possiblity of success.

The details of God's way are in the Bible - accessible to all people everywhere.

If you're in Matlock, we'd love you to come and along and find out more.

You're welcome to drop in!
