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 life and prepares us to bloom. He chooses where we are planted and promises to provide what we need to flourish in the presence of His love. He nurtures us in the timing of His will and helps us remember to trust in the power of His greatness. 
He sets the stage for each new season of life. Through long days of winter, God prepares us to open our hearts and receive what’s to come. He reminds us to be patient while we wait to rise. And, He shows how it feels to be nurtured by Him.  

Spring is coming 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 what has 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 there is a reason for EVERY season of our lives. The Maker of EVERY living thing knows the plans He has for our days.  

God will remind us who’s in charge of our lives. He will show  how to remain faithful, while He readies us to rise. 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 be perfectly grown by Him.

Dear God, Thank you for loving us, even in our weathered days of doubt. You help us rise from the hardened layers of 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
