"Still other seed fell on good soil. It came
up and yielded a crop, a hundred times
more than was sown." (Luke 8:8 NIV)
How many times do we allow things in our past
to hinder us and to keep us from fulfilling what
new door God has to open up for us now?
Sometimes we hold so tight to the past that we
can’t grow and become like the seed that grows
into the stem, and then to the beautiful flower.
I used to love my flowers to death. I would water
and water them until the poor things would drown
in their roots, consequently killing out their chance
to grow into beautiful flowers. My oh my.
Now I water my plants only on Mondays and they
look so much nicer and healthier.
God has steps and chapters for our lives just like the
seed that grows when treated properly by the grower.
We need to open ourselves up to those changes and
levels. God knows what is best for us and will gently
lead us as we trust Him into the proper stages.
We may long for the life we once had when our bodies
were stronger and healthier.
No matter what our past…. healthier days, being
able to hold down a job, being stronger in body…
God has good and hope for us now and in our future.
If you’re stuck in the past and God is trying to take
you to a new level in him……LET IT GO!!! You
might be surprised at how much happier you will
be with what wonderful things God has in His
plans for you.
