Good Morning everyone...
Do you see my wonderful Dolphin Plant. It finally BLOOMED !!!
I have been watching and waiting for weeks...
I posted about it here..
It took so long but it finally happened.
As I told you before and old gentleman in St. Martins gave this wee slip to me so long ago..
It nearly died and then with only 4 wee leaves it decided to grow...
I love it..
In my mind this whole time I have been thinking of a comparison between the way I have been nurturing this plant and the way that God must nurture us..
We are the same in a way.. Sometimes we start out growing for God so many times as a wee little slip.. We get our roots and grow and seem to thrive and then along comes the enemy of our souls and we allow him to all but kill us off..
Something else takes our minds off of HIM..
We stop praying and putting Him first in our lives.. Other things are more important than Jesus...
We shrivel up and lose ourselves to the world.. Barely holding on...
But Jesus still loves us..
Then one day something clicks in our lives.
We finally look toward Him, Jesus Christ our Lord.. and something takes a hold in our growth. We grasp on and we look upward to our Hope..We desire a closer walk with Him..
We realize we NEED Jesus and we begin following the Word of God and we start praying.
We repent and He forgives us.. Thank you, Jesus..
And then we bud... we grow daily in Him and someday by the grace of God we will bloom...
Don't you love Jesus?
I am so thankful today for his love and nurturing.. Each morning His mercy is renewed for us.. Imagine!! Every morning when I pray I imagine that new slate of mercy being renewed with the sunrise...
Lamentations 3: 22, 23..
Great is His faithfulness..
It is only His grace and mercy that will bring us through..
Have you ever heard that song? It is on YouTube and every time we sing it at church it so blesses my heart.
Your Grace And Mercy brought me through...
I am living this moment because of You..
I want to thank You and praise You, too..
For Your grace and mercy brought me through..
Thank you, Jesus....
Jesus is coming soon... so soon. The world can see it today.. Not just Christians who have been looking for so long but the signs are everywhere..
