{Seeds turn into Life.}

May 8, 2017

After what seemed like months of rain, we finally got a little break from the wet weather and was able to enjoy some sunshine. It was the perfect day to plant some flowers and seeds for our mini garden. We had a great time. 

 

I couldn't help but think how God has planted seeds throughout my own life. I can think of many situations that I can witness to where God had intervened in my life and planted a seed. Unlike our garden peas, the seeds in my life took many years before they sprouted through the surface. He watered, and gave light, and fed my soul until it was time to truly change me. At age 25, He came to me and I turned my Life over to Him. My seed had now became a bud of life. But I had so much more growing to do, I still do and it has been 3 years. You see, being a Christian is to constantly grow yourself to become more like Jesus. Regardless of what some people believe, this does not happen overnight. It comes with many trials, connections, love, triumphs, courage, and lots of time. It takes dedication to the Bible and getting to know His word. It comes with trusting our Gods plan and being in tune with His will for your life. It takes steadfastness and stubbornness to turn your head from sin and satin's trickery. It requires being humble and admitting your wrongs. It requires letting go of the worldly desires that surround us. Its by knowing His grace and showing it to others. It's listening to God when he says "enough" and to walk away from a situation. Any being on this planet can say- none of this comes easy. You must remember that we are broken sinners. We can never be Jesus... It takes life to happen to test your faith. The key is that you feel conviction, you repent to the Lord when you fail.. you ask Jesus for guidance and you learn from the mistakes.. And we must continue to strive to be like Him.

 

All of this.... Takes so much time. Coming from me- an inpatient, strong willed Woman... I have felt change in my heart.  I am more in tune with Jesus now then I was 1 year ago. My little bud might have grown a leaf by now. But I have so much more to grow and I know it is going to take time. Its going to take patience. With all the surrounding anxiousness, struggles, and frustrations- I feel at peace. My Lord has settled my heart.

 

Today I just want to pray for all of my readers and encourage that you may seek out God today and ask Him to plant the seed of His love in your heart. To continue to help you grow into the person He wills you to be. 

 

 

Jeremiah 17:7-8

Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
 For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.
