I’ve been trimming plants, overhauling a couple entirely. One long green shoot is flowing out one side of a large mug, and I have to educate myself on whether to completely get rid of the dead parts around it or let the living part grow next to it.
Plants remind me a lot of us. They need care and do a lot when in the right environment, but they still need an outside source to thrive. I am much like the plants I have been tending to lately, with pieces I see that would make Abba proud, and want to keep, and others not so much.
Since I am having surgery tomorrow and taking the next couple weeks off, I have been preparing myself for this time of reflection, rest and stillness upon me.
I pray as I learn to read the Bible slower and more methodically, thoughtfully, and with a meatier appetite that whatever the Lord would show me I can fully well take in and digest. I don’t want to just hear Him; I want to know Him!
I wanted to share something with you I have listened to over and over again lately. I can’t seem to get enough of learning how to truly be meek. Of course, this cannot be done without the Holy Spirit’s help. If you have time, I encourage you to listen below to dear E. Elliot.
Do you have a message on your heart lately? I’d love if you shared below!
