So, neither the one who plants nor the one who waters is anything, but only God, who makes things grow. 1 Corinthians 3: 7 NIV
God lovingly tends the garden of our lives and prepares us to bloom. He allows us to flourish in the timing of His love. He brings PEACE in His presence as we TRUST and allow ourselves to be grown by His greatness.
He readies us for each new season. Through long days of winter, God opens our hearts for HOPE. He prepares us for new beginnings as we faithfully GROW. He reminds us to be patient while we’re nurtured by His love and prepares us to bloom where we’re planted.
Spring is coming! Winter gray will be replaced by the sun. Green will become greener. Brown weathered soil will grow new life. And blue-sky days will allow us to be warmed by what we’ve been missing…
The Bible says, “To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3: 1 God needs time to grow us, so we will recognize EVERY season has a purpose. The Maker of EVERY living thing knows the plans He has for our days.
God will help us remember who’s in charge of ALL things. He will teach us valuable lessons while we wait to see what happens next. The fullness of spring will cultivate a peaceful heart of praise, if we grow deeper in our relationship with Him. HE is the source of our strength! God will ready us to bloom when He’s ready. But we WILL GROW in His greatness EVERY day of our lives if we trust in Him and remain faithful.
Dear God, thank you for helping us rise in Your greatness and find PEACE from Your presence in our lives. Grow the love of our faithfulness as we’re readied to bloom and help us remember YOU have a plan for each one of us. We will love YOU with all of our hearts and PRAISE You for all You provide in the timing of Your will. Thank you for Your love for us. Amen
