For everything God created is good, and nothing is to be rejected if it is received with thanksgiving. 1 Timothy 4:4 NIV

God lovingly tends the garden of life and prepares us to bloom. He chooses where we will be planted and promises to provide what we need to be nourished in the presence of peace. He allows us to flourish in the timing of His will and helps us remember to trust in the power of His greatness. 

God sets the stage for each new season of life. Through long days of winter, He prepares us to open our hearts and receive what’s to come. He reminds us to be patient while planted seeds are waiting to bloom. And, He shows how it feels to trust. 

Spring will be here soon! Winter gray will be replaced with everything good. Green will become greener. Brown weathered soil will grow new life. And, blue-sky days will allow us to be warmed by everything we have been missing.

God has a plan for our days. The Bible says, “To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Ecclesiastes 3: 1 He needs time to grow us, so we will recognize there is a reason for EVERY season of our lives. He is the Maker of every living thing. He WILL grow us. 

God will remind us who’s in charge of our lives. And, as we grow in Him, He will show us how to remain faithful, while we wait for better days to come. When the timing is right, He will provide glimpses of what’s ahead and show how to cultivate a peaceful heart of praise. He WILL bless those who patiently wait to beautifully bloom. 

Dear God, Thank you for loving us, even in our weathered days of doubt. You help us rise from the hardened layers in our lives and breathe new life in the heart of our weakness. We will gratefully wait to be grown in Your greatness. And, we will remain faithful to remember; You really DO have great plans for our lives. Amen
