Growing Conditions

Thankful Thursday shares warm weather with overcast conditions. From what I hear from those blessed with a green thumb, these conditions prime plants for growth. Take a peek out your window. Bright green leaves push up through the ground some already showing off their gorgeous and colorful blooms.

Those seeds started in a deep dark place. They continued to receive nourishment from the soil and watering from the rain to develop roots and sprouts pushing through the darkness. As that growth continued, it wasn’t easy. The darkness offered a lot of unknowns, but also provisions for strengthening and growing.

This past year has had many dark places for each of us. Our unknown futures are known to God. These dark times ready us for the prime growing conditions in our lives. We receive provision from Him that we may not understand now, but is strengthening and growing us for future that He knows. In trust, stay rooted in Him and in faith, grow into new understanding and opportunities where God’s glory can shine through you.

Blessings to you!
