You know in the Bible it talks about things growing and Jesus uses the comparison on plants. If you really think about it, plants go through a lot to even get to the surface. I wonder if that’s my life? I don’t mean to sound woe is me or seek pity, but life has never been easy for me or my family. I have nothing but fond memories of my childhood but once I started school things turned pretty crappy. Dad was sick a lot, I was bullied, I didn’t make friends easily. I could seam a lot of psychological issues from that but I won’t. I digress and move to the past few years. Dad died, we moved from my childhood home, and then I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a pretty rough day yesterday, I just didn’t see the meaning of it all and why o’ why did this happen to me and my family? It’s not fair, but then I heard this song
And I wondered if I’m being planted to bloom into something beautiful for His glory? I heard the lyrics and it kinda gives it some clarity.
“Down in the dirt buried deep
There is a promise there’s a seed
And with some sun and with some rain
A little shelter from the pain
With some patience and some time you’ll see It grow”
Maybe that’s what we are in life, seeds to be planted. We go through drought and rain, wind and sun, and then we break the surface and see the fruits of our labor. God promises good to come to those who love Him. I have to believe He will make beauty from these ashes or a flowers from these seeds.
