With the weather consistently more spring than winter, it's hard to not think about flowers and gardens. Surely winter is playing tricks on us, but to satisfy the spring bug I decided to check the viability of some old seed packets I had laying around. (I found this process helpful) While my hands have been busy with these earth-smelling test baggies, my heart has been foraging through some truth.
The truth being that our greatest moments of growth come from our quietest moments alone. The little seeds don't suddenly wake up a sunflower or a cucumber, but require days and months of steady and quiet growth. Our growth as a person and in the matters of the heart are much the same. Daily nourishment, unhurried dwelling, faithful remaining -- these make the difference between those who discover transformation and purpose and those who don't.
Press in deep to the soil God has you in now because He plans to grow you up for His glory and your good.
